It all starts in the Ancient Roman city of Ostia, when the dogs on Flavia’s street start dying. Who is killing them – and why? Her investigation leads her to three extraordinary people; slave-girl Nubia, Jonathan, a Jewish boy, and Lupus, a mute beggar-child. But their adventures won’t only take them to the graveyards, marketplaces and courtyards of Ostia. Before long, they find themselves in Pompeii as Mount Vesuvius erupts…
