Between writing her bestselling novels, Caroline Lawrence has penned several short stories, covering incidents alluded to in the novels, but not dramatised at length. This book brings together mini-mysteries to provide even more coverage of events in the lives of our four detectives during the dangerous, exciting reign of Emperor Titus. Each of these short and sharp stories is as compelling and exciting as the novels, full of the sights and sounds of ancient Rome. Caroline Lawrence has written exclusive notes on each story, providing background on the inspiration and relevance to the series.Using his bronze stylus, he scratched a message in the thin layer of beeswax that coated one of the wooden leaves: YOU COULD BUY A SHIP FOR THAT Flavia ... He brought it here to his friend Faber the carpenter and asked him to repair it.
