Megan has got two tickets to a press conference with musician Sun D'Arc. He's one of the hottest performers around. Raf gets sick and can't go, so she takes William with her instead. After a series of confusing experiences, William ends up missing. Why was Sun D'Arc acting so strangely? Why is Jazmin, the new girl at school, lurking in alleys? And what's the connection to Egyptian mummies? Could this be another case for the Chicagoland Detective Agency?
I was kind of underwhelmed with the first book in the Chicagoland Detective Agency series, so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this title. I felt like the characters gelled a bit more (or maybe I was just more familiar with them). It's not a long book, but there were some strong red herrings and a satisfying conclusion. This looks like a fun series for kids who like comics and mysteries. Definitely worth checking out.
