The month is October, the year AD 79. The arrival of a ragged man at the Geminus household sets in motion a a series of events which take the children to an opulent marine villa at Laurentum, a few miles south of Ostia. Just off the coast is a sunken wreck full of treasure which could be the answer to all their problems. But someone else is after the treasure, too. As Flavia Gemina and her three friends try to recover it, they solve the terrible mystery of Lupus past. Reading level Ages 8 and up.
