Book Review

It’s the vacation of a life time, touring the ancient city of Cairo and other mystical, interesting and mesmerizing places. Adam and Justin, these cousins were on the lookout to find the famous King tut’s tomb and treasure that the well known Scottish Archaeologist James Kinnard spoke about. They were taken on one of their finest adventures ever by their Aunt and Grandmother, until weird and sinister things started happening and black robed characters with guns kept appearing around the corners. They were plagued with break ins, kidnappings and even murder.  This was truly a one in a million vacation, the story was well written with an intense and thrilling ending, fast pace and truly exciting.  Adventurous kids would enjoy this book.
