December, A.D. 79. It's the month of the Saturnalia: a festival when people do as they please and anything can happen. When a Roman widow, Cartila Poplica, shows a little too much interest in Captain Geminus, his daughter Flavia Gemina is determined to find out what Cartilla's motives really are. To do that, she has to perform twelve tasks, just like the Greek hero Hercules. And to top it all, a lion is on the loose in Ostia. How Flavia and her three friends Nubia, Jonathan and Lupus unravel the mystery makes a thrilling story that is full of surprises.
