Following his adventures in the Scottish Highlands in SilverFin

Summer vacation is on the horizon and James is looking forward to the school trip to the beautiful Italian island of Sardinia, and the opportunity to spend some time with his reclusive cousin, Victor. But all is not as it appears. James soon discovers that the seemingly peaceful island harbors some strange secrets. Before long, Victor's house has been ransacked and important pieces of artwork have been stolen. James learns that the Millennaria a ruthless Roman society long thought to be extinguished is still active. He suspects the impetuous millionaire Count Ugo Carnifex may be behind it. But one of his teachers has been acting strangely as well...
As a young girl's life hangs in the balance, it's up to James to uncover an intricate conspiracy that will take him head-to-head with enemies more ruthless than he could have ever imagined.
"The tale is neatly and satisfactorily concluded perhaps a little too neatly and far sooner than most readers will want to stop reading. A page-turning read." Kirkus Reviews
"With its highly descriptive style of writing, it's a fun, easy read, although the characters are not particularly well developed. Its greatest appeal might be to reluctant middle-school readers..." School Library Journal
