The Beggar from Volubilis is yet another mystery thriller from Caroline Lawrence. This novel, just like the other books in this series, turned out to be amazing. The four friends, Flavia, Nubia, Lupus and Jonathan sail to the exotic land of Africa, on a search for Nero's Eye at the request of Emperor Titus. Their quest takes them from city to city, and town to town in Africa. They face pantomime dancers, slave dealers and wild animals in order to find Nero's Eye. In this book, many historical figures are introduced to the readers and we learn a lot about them. This is a great read for readers of all ages.
