The last descendant of an African King reveals an ancient secret with his dying words: Deep in the jungles of Rwanda lies a hidden temple containing a great diamond which possesses the knowledge of all nations. The map to the temple has been etched onto the skins of eight drums scattered throughout the world. All eight drums must be re-united to open the temple. But beware, the drums are protected by mysterious powers, and legend has it that elemental spirits guard the treasure!
Meanwhile, priceless African antiquities are turning up missing from museums all over the world. Missing or stolen? The M.O. looks hauntingly familiar… The A.C.M.E. team recognizes Carmen Sandiego’s infamous signature.
Now, join A.C.M.E. agent-in-training, Cole Gannon, along with Jules Argent and Shadow Hawkins, in an all-new action-adventure on the trail of Carmen Sandiego, the world’s greatest thief. This case will take Cole around the world; from a museum in New York, to the beaches of New Zealand, to the Incan ruins of Machu Picchu, and that’s just the beginning. While on the case, Cole will have to use acrobatics, stealth, martial arts, and most of all, his wit, to stop Carmen from unearthing the drums and making off with the lost treasure!
