[T]he third mystery in the Sherlock Files series will please fans intrigued by ancient Egypt, codes, danger, and the tantalizing possibility of magic.

School Library Journal (review of audiobook)
This well-constructed book places the kids in the role of detectives, which is fun and interesting for a middle reader. This chapter book offers no illustrations; however, the story moves quickly. Some of the details are a bit more complex, leaning toward more advanced readers. An elementary or a middle school library would benefit from this book.
