Meet ancient Egypt's favorite young detectives: twelve-year-old Zet, his trusty kid-sister Kat, and their best friend, Hui. 

Packed full of whimsy, fun, and old-world charm.

Detective Zet is on the trail of his latest mystery: priceless amulets are disappearing all over ancient Egypt's city of Thebes. The authorities have no clue where they've gone. To make matters worse, Zet's best friend is trapped in a secretive jewelry apprentice school and visitors aren't allowed! Armed with curiosity--and a brainy sister who can read and write hieroglyphics--Zet sets out in search of answers. 

Along the way, the siblings hunt for a meddling ghost, climb through a stinky garbage pile, sidestep a quick-tempered medjay police chief, and learn how hard it is to make a golden amulet. But when their backs are against the wall, Zet, Kat, and Hui rely on the one thing they know best: each other. Because friends, they stick together.
