More About the Author

Million-selling author Caroline Lawrence writes detective stories with the double aim of entertaining children and teaching them. Combining fast-moving plots with historical accuracy means her history mystery stories are beloved of children, parents and teachers.

In 2009, Caroline won the Classical Association Prize for her Roman Mysteries series, which comprises over 20 books and inspired a glossy BBC TV series.

In 2011 Caroline launched a second historical detective series, the Western Mysteries, staring P.K. Pinkerton: a 12-year-old doubly orphaned detective who has trouble "reading people". The Case of the Deadly Desperados was the Sunday New York Times Editors' Choice in February 2012.

Caroline says: "I want to know everything about the past, especially the exciting things. Also the sounds, smells, sights and tastes. I write historical novels because nobody has invented a Time Machine. And I write for kids because 11 is my inner age."

Caroline is also writing a spin-off series of Roman books for readers aged 7+, starting with
The Sewer Demon

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Yet! Excellent! 8 Oct 2005
Less than a sentence in I knew I was going to like this book, less than a paragraph in I knew I was going to enjoy this book and by the end of the chapter I knew I was going to love it!
All the usual characters are there, all the usual suspence and mystery and the usual eagerness to finish and know the answes to all the questions.
Flavia's tutor has committed a terrible crime and, with grim determination, she and her friends set out to bring him to justice. But is Flavia's mind focused on the bigger picture or is her judgement once again being clouded by how personal this mystery has become?
One event can change only took one spark to set Troy on fire!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite 15 Oct 2005
By Yusra
I read the Fugitive from Corinth the first day it came out and it was so good that i couldn't put it down. Even though out of all the books that Caroline Lawrence has writtten, my faverite so far had been The Assasins of Rome but I have to admit this bbook by far is way better than The assasins of rome. In this book the four friends(flavia, lupus, jonathan and nubia) are determined to find Aristo who they saw standing over Marcus(flavia's pater) who has been stabbed. During this book, they come over many places and people who try to help them find Aristo. This booooooooook is AWESUM!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read 8 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
strongly recommend this, most children study the Romans at some point so the historical detail in these books will support their learning in history plus the plots are slick, the whole thing is well written, the characters are believable and sympathetic, moral issues are discussed (slavery, cruelty, class) so all in all very worthwhile.....
