The Lake Como Girls in Rome: The Case of the Missing Gladiator

Summer and Francesca shed their scuba gear and pull on ancient robes. This time they're working as translators at the Coliseum in Rome. The girls soon learn that translating is not all about pointing to the bathrooms or checking ticket lines. The job gets a little rough when a drunk and disorderly tourist leaves them with bruised arms. Fortunately a handsome gladiator comes to their rescue. But when that gladiator doesn't show up for work one morning, the girls find themselves in far more danger that leaves them racing through the streets of Rome pursued by loan sharks. Who says you need to scuba dive to meet a shark!
