SynopsisThe Prophet from Ephesus by Caroline Lawrence
August, AD 81. Presumed dead by their families and wanted by unknown authorities, Flavia and her friends feel very far from home. When they discover that one of Miriam's twins has been kidnapped, the four detectives set out for Halicarnassus. Here they find prophets who heal the sick and cure the lame - or are they merely tricksters and villains in disguise? A talented storyteller, Caroline Lawrence has created a delightfully readable and accessible series that children will want to read time and time again.
