Best yet!5
The Cahill siblings are at it again - this time in Egypt. Mysterious clues are hidden in some of the most famous tombs in all of history, but danger still abounds. This time around, though, Dan and Amy have some help from an old friend of Grace Cahill’s - or do they?? This is the best book yet of the series.

The Best Book in the Series Since The Maze of Bones5
“Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you.” — Genesis 26:2

In the Bible, Egypt is often used as a symbol that stands for the evil that is in the world. That’s a good reminder of the dangers that Amy and Dan Cahill will encounter when, accompanied by their au pair Nellie Gomez, they seek one of the 39 clues in Egypt.

As I’ve commented on the earlier three books, even if you don’t plan to try to win the contest these books make for fun reading. It’s like a much more exciting version of The Amazing Race with much more at stake.

This story is so delicious that I want to be very careful not to spoil it for you. Compared to the last two books, this one is absolutely super!

Jude Watson makes great use of all the characters to produce drama, introduce plot complications, develop relationships, deepen your understanding of the Cahills, and make you appreciate each character more. Determining what the clue is in this book is also much more difficult than in earlier books which I thought made the story more entertaining. I was especially pleased to see that the story makes good use of the Egyptian setting. In addition, Dan wasn’t nearly so annoying here and Amy’s weaknesses made her more appealing. Even the not-so-trustworthy Cahills are more interesting in this book than in the last two.

As I read the book, I couldn’t help but wonder how Amy and Dan will be able to avoid all of their untrustworthy relatives and deal with the normal dangers of life as they race around the world. I can hardly wait for Book 5!

The book’s main theme is trust. After you finish reading this book, think about who you should trust . . . and about what.

Great new series for middel grade readers4
My Daughter loves these books and looks forward to each new installment. She is a strong reader and goes through book series very quickly. These are fun to read and she can’t wait to get each new book and find more clues.

From School Library Journal
Grade 3–6—In this leg of the worldwide scavenger hunt, Amy and Dan Cahill, accompanied by their au pair Nellie, are off to Egypt to find the next clue left by Ekaterina branch founder Katherine Cahill. Once there, they learn about the rivalry between the Tomas and Ekaterina branches of the Cahill family, discover a secret Ekaterina stronghold at an Egyptian hotel, and explore tombs of ancient Egyptians. They meet their grandmother Grace’s friend Hilary, who gives them several items from Grace. While Hilary and her grandson Theo seem eager to help, looks can be deceiving. Run-ins with Irina Spasky, Jonah Wizard, and Alistair Oh add to the excitement and drama of the adventure. Amy and Dan discover Cahill connections to Napoleon, Thomas Edison, and Marie Curie along with paintings and hieroglyphs that will lead them on their dangerous hunt that’s fraught with betrayals and reversals. Like the previous books, historical information is woven into the fast-paced adventure.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH END
