A fragment of an old diary puts Cairo Jim on the trail of a secret more stunning than all the Seven Wonders of the World put together. It's the find of the century - and Jim and his friends are the heroes of the hour. But behind the scenes lurks a manicured, prune-smelling, fez-wearing villain, with a devious plot to blast Jim's hard-earned reputation to pieces.
Geoffrey McSkimming is the author of the Cairo Jim chronicles, a huge success in his native Australia, with fifteen books in the series so far. While researching the globe-trotting series he went to Egypt, Mexico and Peru, to name but a few! An entertaining speaker, Geoffrey regularly appears at events in full Cairo Jim costume!
