The fourteenth title in the bestselling Roman Mysteries series, re-issued with a brand new cover look.The friends are on a quest for the Emperor Titus - to steal a gemstone known as 'Nero's Eye'.
The Delphic Oracle prophesied that whoever owns the gem will rule Rome - so Titus wants it for himself.
As the friends travel on a caravan across the desert they encounter slave-traders, pantomime actors and a wild animal stampede - not to mention another puzzle: what has happened to Uncle Gaius?
A talented storyteller, Caroline Lawrence has created a delightfully readable and accessible series that children will want to read time and time again.
