The Thieves of Ostia

Audiobook
The year is 79 AD. The place is Ostia, the port of Rome. Flavia Gemina, a Roman sea captain’s daughter, is about to embark on a thrilling adventure.
Set in the graveyard, marketplace, and courtyards of a Roman city, this fast-paced mystery paints a vivid picture of life in ancient times.
When the dogs on Flavia’s street start dying, she is determined to find out who is killing them–and why. Her investigation leads her to three extraordinary people: Jonathan, her new neighbor; Nubia, and African slave-girl; and Lupus, a mute beggar boy. They become firm friends as they search for the killer, narrowly escape being kidnapped by a slave dealer, and uncover a series of burglaries.
