Flavia and her friends accept a secret mission from the Emperor which involves them going to Roman Africa. Flavia's and Jonathan's family are mourning the death of Jonathan's sister Miriam in childbirth. Her husband, Flavia's Uncle Gaius, is believed to have committed suicide, but someone who may have been him was seen also heading for Africa.

A gripping adventure with some sensitive portrayals of how different people cope with the death of a loved one in different ways. ( )
