The Deadliest Thief by June Trop
Miriam bat Isaac, a budding alchemist and amateur sleuth in first-century CE Alexandria, becomes frantic when her best friend, Phoebe, is kidnapped. At the same time, a brute of a man is stalking Nathaniel ben Ruben, an itinerant potbellied dwarf. Could this brute, the last surviving jewel thief from the Temple of Artemis, be the same man who has kidnapped Phoebe?
Let THE DEADLIEST THIEF take you into the underbelly of first-century CE Roman-occupied Alexandria to help Miriam solve her most baffling case yet.
