The eleventh title in the bestselling Roman Mysteries series, re-issued with a brand new cover look.Summer AD 80. Flavia and her friends receive an invitation to stay at the luxurious Villa Limona in Surrentum, where their friend Pulchra has a mystery she desperately wants them to solve. After a year of hardship and disasters, people are in cheerful spirits - there is even talk of love and romance. But it seems one of the guests has murder in mind. Can Flavia and her friends track down the would-be poisoner before it's too late?A talented storyteller, Caroline Lawrence has created a delightfully readable and accessible series that children will want to read time and time again.
Romans are a hugely popular subject with children but no other comparable series exists. The Romans are National Curriculum Key Stages 1 and 2. Terrific storytelling cominbed with rigorously researched historical detail. The series has been sold in 17 languages. Over 900,000 copies of the series sold in the UK alone. Sixteen books have been commissioned - guaranteeing the series' devoted fans seven further adventures. Inspiration for the prime time BBC TV live action series.
