In a golden era of pyramids live two young detectives. This is their adventure. 

When Zet finds an Egyptian royal family member visiting his house, he knows something is terribly wrong. He's shocked to hear that a princess has vanished into thin air! Where has she gone? And why is he being asked to play detective? The answer soon becomes clear: no one will suspect a boy searching for clues. It's his job to ask questions and crack the case without stirring up suspicions. 

The only problem? Zet must travel far from home and family, down the Nile River to an ancient pyramid construction site. And with his best friend tagging along, things are bound to turn messy.
