Product Description


A thrilling murder mystery with a sense of adventure from start to finish. It really makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.―Emma, age 8

Rich in historical detail, with maps and a glossary, this exciting adventure story really brings to life the sights and sounds of Ancient Greece.―Becca Pennicott

In this tour de force, the tenth in the ebuillient Roman Mysteries series, Lawrence combines racy storytelling with authentic (but never unduly didactic) detail, occasional deliberate anachronisms, good jokes and bons mots.―Kevin Crossley-Holland


An interesting and exciting read that is extremely well researched. It is packed with accurate detail of everyday Roman life. The story is so well paced and involving that you don't realise just how much information you are absorbing―SCHOOL LIBRARIAN on SECRETS OF VESUVIUS

Fans of The Roman Mysteries series by Caroline Lawrence will not be disappointed by the tenth adventure. Flavia, Jonathan, Nubia and Lupus are soon to set sail from Corinth with Flavia's sea captain father at the helm when the unimaginable happens: Captain Geminus is brutally stabbed in his room at the inn. To make matters worse, one of his and the kids' most trusted friends is found standing over him with a bloody knife. The gang pursues the culprit to Delphi and Athens, with Flavia so focused on vengeance that her detective skills are not as sharp as they usually are. It's quiet Nubia who sees what's really going on...The plot has lots of twists, a bit of romance, glimpses into Roman life in A.D. 80, and flashes of humour. It's fun to read.
