First hilarious title in this brilliant new series by Keith Brumpton. We are in Ancient Britain. The Roman Emperor, Nero, is on the throne and shows no sign of getting up. A mystery gang is trying to sabotage the Gladiator Games - and it's down to Antonius Pantonius, private detective, and his side-kick, Cora Decorum, to go undercover and track down the culprits...An exciting new detective/mystery series, written in an entertaining Raymond Chandler style. Every page features hilarious cartoon-style illustrations, all cleverly integrated with the text making it accessible to even the most reluctant readers. Rome and Away brings history to life with its zany, appealing characters and humorous contemporary references. Publishing simultaneously in paperback in September: The Flying Sorceress.
