After her bookie finds out that she's been nobbling race horses Claudia Seferius decides to accept an invitation to view a vineyard using revolutionary methods only to get involved with pirates, murders, and an alleged vampire. Fortunately Marcus's investigation of robbery at upper class parties keeps him close at hand.

Although I enjoy watching the sparks fly in Claudia and Marcus's scenes together, the hint at the end that they might actually get together properly is a good thing. ( )

Book description
The latest adventure for the Roman sleuth and glamorous heroine of I, Claudia When Claudia is caught by the Security Police in the act of doping racehorses, it's the least of her problems. The owner of the racehorses, a certain Hylas the Greek, isn't very happy about it, either. Seeking refuge with the tall, dark, aristocratic Leo at the Villa Arcadia in the Adriatic seems the perfect solution. Shaded by figs and pomegranates on an island of steep, wooded cliffs, sandy coves and hillsides redolent with a thousand aromatic herbs, is there a better place to ride out the storm? Here, Claudia has only Leo's dysfunctional family to contend with. But then a pirate warship anchors in the bay, and suddenly Arcadia is no longer an idyll. The past and the present have become dangerously and inextricably linked. And too late Claudia discovers that 300 miles isn't far enough from Rome to escape either the Security Police, Hylas the Greek - or pure evil. [retrieved from Amazon 7/8/2010]
