EB Lyner has been lucky so far, considering that neither of his parents wants custody of him. Miraculously, he hasn’t been caught tagging utility boxes or breaking into foreclosed houses in his Phoenix neighborhood. But things are about to change when he decides to trespass and enters a multi-million dollar home in nearby Scottsdale. What he doesn’t know is that the remnants of a murder are hidden in this house. Its victim is trapped in time and can only rest if EB agrees to find her killer in the ancient Roman city of Herculaneum, 78 A.D. Haunted by a voice that keeps repeating “Expiscor quisnam iuguolo mihi” (Find out who killed me), EB agrees to let her guide him back in time. His Latin stinks and his detective skills are even worse, but he has nothing to lose; that is of course, if he can solve this murder before Mt. Vesuvius erupts on August 24, 79 A.D. With limited time and next to no resources, EB Lyner is left doing the only thing he knows how – tag the city until he gets an answer. But will it be too late? He’s already impersonating the nephew of a wealthy landowner, unaware that the real relative is on his way to Herculaneum; and if that isn’t daunting enough, the murderer is still at large. Time is something EB does not have. His wit, humor and resolve will have to suffice.

New York native Ann I. Goldfarb spent most of her life in education, first as a classroom teacher and later as a middle school principal and professional staff developer. Writing has always been an integral part of her world. Her freelance non-fiction can be found in trade magazines for Madavor Media and Jones Publications, but her real passion is writing mystery-suspense for young adult audiences. Time travel is the vehicle she has chosen to embrace. Ann resides with her family near the foothills of the White Tank Mountains in Arizona.From Kirkus Reviews:
Kirkus Reviews February 2012 said “ The novel moves along at a solid pace and the motivations for the murder are well plotted. EB’s voice is charmingly youthful and acerbic, while also recalling the sharp observations of old film detectives. A smart, entertaining time travel mystery.”
