Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

When cousins Justin and Adam traveled to Egypt with their grandmother and Aunt Isabel an adventure awaited them. Scottish archaeologist James Kinnaird was missing. His theories concerning the legendary Scarab King were controversial. Mysteries abound in Egypt. Adam acquired a special antique scarab. Sinister Dr. Khalid was very interested in Adam’s artifact. Aunt Isabel’s camera was stolen. The boys face danger and kidnapping. Can they rescue Kinnaird, solve the mystery, and find the treasure?

Too often it is difficult to find books that will hold the attention of 10-15-year-olds. They prefer action packed books. The lead characters in this book are Justin and Adam. They will appeal to the focus audience. The boys are intelligent, diligent and brave. They are excellent role models. Fiona Ingram has not short changed the secondary characters. They are well developed with personalities and voices of their own. The plot is fast paced and action packed. Adults will enjoy this book just as much as preteens.
