Xander’s classmate gives a report at school about a famous amulet of the Egyptian god of time, Thoth. It was thought to be so powerful that it could turn back time one day every hundred years. And that day will come in a week!
The amulet disappeared from a museum in London years ago. Xena and Xander’s celebrated ancestor, Sherlock Holmes, tried to find it, but with no luck. The twins are on the case—but so are some mysterious foes who are trying to thwart and perhaps even harm them! Can Xander and Xena track down what Sherlock Holmes could not?

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ami | 1/16/2014

    " A good read that any child would enjoy and that my daughter is looking forward to reading. It was written well, if a bit improbable for an adult reader. "

    " LOVE these! I have listened to them as audio books and I think that's what makes the stories seem so fun. A little more in-depth than Boxcar Children, so it's perfect for even teens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 12/21/2011

    " Much better than the previous book, although it occasionally has a Scooby-Doo feel to it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Qualia | 2/9/2011

    " This was a better book than the second one of the series. I liked the way Ms. Barrett introduced Egyptian mythology into the book but did not overwhelm the reader. I also liked the hint at the Greek myth of Atalanta. I love when knowing about mythology pays off! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 8/8/2010

    " Another fine entry into the Xander and Xena detecting pair series. These are sweet little stories and, I'm sure, perfect for juvenile readers who would like to imagine treasure hunting for ancient relics with cryptic clues. Perfect for a raining afternoon reading and imagination travel! "

    " Brother and sister Xena and Xander are descendants of Sherlock Holmes, and they decide to follow in their famous ancestors footsteps. All of the adults around them are slightly unintelligent and overfriendly (not believable characters), but the mystery is enjoyable and the kids are clever. "
