Floridius the Soothsayer has been asked to read the omens for a wealthy man whose villa appears to be haunted. The pay is good but it means studying a sheep's liver and poor Floridius faints at the sight of blood Can Threptus solve the mystery and save his friend from embarrassment?
Join Threptus and Floridius on their hilarious and action-packed adventures among Rome's superstitious underclass, and don't miss this ruder, funnier and still historically accurate companion to The Roman Mysteries.
More adventure and hilarity in ancient Roman times in this the fourth book of the series, as Threptus the former beggar boy helps his mentor the soothsayer 'read the omens' for a wealthy patron.
