Amazon Editorial Review

It's the summer of AD 79, and Flavia Gemina the sea captain's daughter along with her friends Jonathan the Jewish boy; Nubia the African slave-girl; and Lupus the homeless beggar-boy set sail for the Bay of Naples, to stay with Flavia's uncle near Pompeii. They are soon absorbing in trying to solve a riddle that may lead to treasure. But then tragedy strikes—Mount Vesuvius erupts and the children are fleeing for their lives, in one of the worst natural disasters ever recorded. Not just a mystery—an absolutely thrilling action adventure that makes you feel you were there!
