Oliver Berry and his friends must outsmart an international criminal network, ruthless in its mission to steal international artefacts.

With just a small window of time, they try to solve the mystery behind the missing artefacts from their local museum.

The warning signs, mistaken identities and the discovery of a body, all signal danger.

The Golden Scarab's Secret

Oliver and his friend Jake successfully intercept an international plot to steal and replicate priceless artefacts on loan from the Museum of Cairo. As a reward for his efforts in the recovery of the stolen artefacts, Oliver is invited on a tour of Egypt courtesy of the Egyptian Council of Antiquities.

But Oliver has a secret that he hasn’t shared with anyone, as he knows it will put his family and friends in danger. 

Oliver and Jake discover a sinister operation working within the walls of the city of Cairo. Unaware they are being followed, it's a race against time to save Egypt's most cherished and powerful artefact. Mistaken identities and dangerous associations hinder Oliver’s ability to stay focused on his goal – to see the Golden Scarab back in the museum. Quite apart from its obvious value as a significant part of Egyptian history – it has an important secret of its own.

Unable to confide in anyone, Oliver attempts to resolve things on his own.

Time is running out and the valuable artefact must be returned to the Cairo Museum to prevent it disappearing forever.

Reviews for The Golden Scarab books

Bob’s Book Blog ~ “Sometimes I read a novel that is so intriguing that I don’t want to finish living in the world that it creates. This is one of those novels. A well written action/adventure/historical novel that will win you over quickly. Intermediate and high school students will get into it easily and anyone who likes Egyptology.”

NZ Year 8 teacher ~ “What a joy for a teacher to witness children scrambling to get their hands on a coveted book. Not since Harry Potter have I seen students so eager to get a copy of the book. Author Lindy Davis manages to hook her reader from the start and reel them in through authentic settings.”
