Flavia's tutor, the Greek Aristo, needs to return to his home town of Corinth but Flavia's father, Marcus, disallows it. Later Marcus is found stabbed with Aristo leaning over him. Aristo flees to the hills and Flavia, Nubia and Lupus, along with bodyguard Caudex, pursue him, only Nubia believing in his innocence, whilst Jonathan stays behind to help his father save Marcus's life. Once in the hills Flavia discovers that Aristo has a brother Dion, who is also looking for him and whose appearance can solve what really happened.
