It's late August, AD 79. The Roman world is reeling from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Volcanic ash covers the land, sunsets are blood-red and the sea gives up corpses of the dead. At a makeshift camp south of Stabia, hundreds of refugees from the cities of Vesuvius try to come to terms with the disaster. But then children begin to go missing from the camp and Flavia and her friends investigate a powerful man known as the Patron. They find themselves on a dangerous mission, where they encounter pirates, slave-dealers and death.
