Product Description:

The "detectives" from Detectives in Togas (see description) are back. This time, the boys buy their teacher a slave, Udo, for his birthday. Unfortunately, he doesn't have any use for the slave, and he tells the boys to return him to the trader. The boys try and take Udo back, but the trader they bought him from has fled - and with good reason! An ex-gladiator threatened to kill him if he didn't get Udo back. Now the boys are stuck with a slave who is wanted - dead or alive - by an ex-gladiator! Udo eventually reveals to the boys and their teacher that he is the personal slave of Marcius Patricius Pollino. He was sent to Rome to deliver a letter - a letter revealing the name of a famous senator Pollino wants killed. The boys are horrified - all of their fathers are famous senators!
