The Roman Mysteries is a collection of 17+ historical novels about four children who solve mysteries in Rome's port of Ostia during the reign of Titus.
Welcome to the world of Flavia Gemina. The year is AD 79. The place is Ostia, port of Rome. From here, Flavia Gemina, daughter of a Roman sea captain, embarks on thrilling adventures with her three friends, Jonathan, Nubia and Lupus.

Later mysteries take them to Pompeii, Rome, Greece, North Africa, Egypt, Turkey and finally back to Ostia and Rome.
"The Scribes from Alexandria," Roman Mystery 15, is set in early summer AD 81. After a shipwreck, the children are separated. Flavia, Jonathan and Lupus go around Alexandria and up the Nile following a trail of clues laid by a mysterious eunuch to find Nubia, who believes they are all dead.
