Secrets of the Tombs; The Phoenix Code

(3 reviews with an average rating of 3 out of 5)

Publisher: Orion

Ryan Flint's mum is a journalist exclusively covering a secret archaeological investigation hoping to unearth the long-lost Benben Stone. But then Professor McNeil's team finally enter the tomb and find ….. nothing! When the professor's brainbox daughter, Chloe, hatches a theory about the stone's whereabouts, she and Ryan become unlikely investigative companions.

But as they follow an increasingly complex trail, helped by clues from the past left by Rahotep, an ancient Egyptian temple servant, they discover other more sinister individuals are also hunting the Stone. They no longer know who to trust - and time's running out…

There's a fast-moving plot, plenty of cliff-hangers and unexpected bad-guys, with humour provided by interplay between happy-go-lucky Ryan and nerdy Chloe in this engaging, informative ancient historical mystery.
