An action-filled plot that holds the interest of the reader (young and old) until the solution of the crime is discovered in the closing pages. The 'local colour' of wax writing tablets, slaves, and public baths provide opportunities for discussion by youth book clubs.

This is a great mystery story!! You need to think carefully as you read this! I also liked the sequel, "Mystery of the Roman Ransom".

With their teacher found bound and gagged in their classroom and a classmate thrown into prison, Mucius, Antonius and their friends set out to solve this puzzling mystery. Who was it who assaulted Xantippus? Did Rufus really desecrate the Temple of Minerva by writing "Caius is a dumbell" on the temple wall? What danger lies ahead that they cannot foresee? Find out the answers when you read Detectives in Togas!
