About the Roman Mysteries

The Roman Mysteries is a series of books written by Caroline Lawrence, as well as a CBBC TV series, following the adventures of four young detectives in Ancient Rome.
Historical events, such as the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, and figures, such as Gaius Valerius Flaccus, play large roles in the stories.
