A thrilling mystery story which crackles with tension as the secrets of a tomb that has closed for 3000 is about to be opened. The Benben Stone looks just like a black rectangular stone but its discovery is one of the most important finds. The stone is thought to have special properties; it can grant eternal life and hidden within it there is secret magic. Ryan, the son of the top journalist covering the opening, is thrilled to be at the opening. But Ryan has no idea just how wrong things can go! Helped by Cleo McNeil, daughter of the lead archaeologist, Ryan finds himself caught up in a dangerous race to beat their enemies to solving the Phoenix Code.


The Phoenix Code by Helen Moss

When Ryan Flint accompanies his journalist mother to an archaeological expedition in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, he isn't expecting life-threatening danger and a 3,000-year-old murder mystery - but that's exactly what he finds! Before he knows it, he has joined forces with Cleo McNeil, an archaeologist's daughter, to solve secret codes, discover an ancient treasure and outwit a strange cult intent on gaining possession of the relic. Can Ryan and Cleo unravel the mystery and solve the Phoenix Code before it's too late?


Praise for Adventure Island: The Mystery of the Whistling Caves

The Famous Five meets Artemis Fowl in The Mystery of the Whistling Caves, an up to the minute adventure with postmodern Blytonian references. THE BOOKSELLER

a great romp of a story, definitely a page turner, and would make fabulous holiday reading THE BOOKBAG
