The Roman Mystery Scrolls: The Poisoned Honey Cake

This is the sec­ond vol­ume in the series The Roman Mys­tery Scrolls, a spin-off from The Roman Mys­ter­ies for younger read­ers. In this story our intre­pid hero, ex-begger-boy Threp­tus, is near­ly drowned, poi­soned and starved, but always comes out of it walk­ing, talk­ing and hun­gry for Cleopa­tra soup.
