Series: Claudia Seferius
(From the publisher):
A deadly contagion may have sent many of Rome’s wealthier citizens fleeing to the country—but for Claudia Seferius a plague is the least of her worries...
For she has ‘temporarily borrowed’ 3000 sesterces from local millionaire Sabbio Tullus. OK, so she’d had to break into his depository to get at it, but did he really need to set the army on to her? Desperate to escape arrest, she seeks refuge in the beautiful spa resort of Atlantis.
Once there she meets the charming Cal, and a little flirting in tranquil surrounding seems an ideal way to pass the time. Except within hours Cal is dead...And he’s not the only one.
Pretty soon Claudia begins to wonder whether Atlantis isn’t far more dangerous than the disease-ridden streets she left behind...
