Action! Adventure! Archaeology! There are more perilous exploits in the second of the Cairo Jim chronicles. In the Valley of the Kings, Egypt, our hero Cairo Jim is hunting for the lost Tomb of the Pharaoh Martenarten. With him for the ride are his trusty talking parrot Doris and Brenda the Wonder Camel. But the devious, treacherous (and well-manicured) Captain Neptune Bone is after the priceless treasure! It looks like the game is up when Bone captures the fearless trio, but it all comes good in the end - with a little help from Miss Jocelyn Osgood and some flying luggage! The major PR and publicity campaign includes nationwide author tour, posters and pyramid-style blades. The Cairo Jim chronicles have sold over 300,000 copies worldwide!
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. Whilst researching the globe-trotting series, he got sunstroke in Egypt, climbed the Mexican pyramids and camped in the cloud forests of Peru. An entertaining speaker, Geoffrey regularly appears at events in full Cairo Jim costume!
