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.
