When English tourist Meredith (Merry) Pink finds herself inadvertently locked in the Howard Carter museum for the night, she has no idea about the thrilling Egyptian adventure she's about to embark upon. The museum was once Howard Carter's home, where he lived during the historic years of his discovery and clearance of Tutankhamun's tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Attempting to break free, Merry accidentally smashes the frame surrounding an original Carter watercolour of an elusive Egyptian Queen. The discovery of a hidden message inside from Howard Carter himself, together with a set of mysterious hieroglyphics, sets her off on a quest to solve the puzzle of a lifetime.
Along the way she teams up with the dashing Adam Tennyson, a self-proclaimed "thwarted" Egyptologist. Together, they set about unriddling the ancient texts, and find themselves on a madcap treasure hunt around some of Egypt's most famous locations.
An exciting blend of adventure, mystery and romance, Carter's Conundrums will demand all of Merry's imagination and love of the fabled ancient land of the pharaohs to keep her on the trail, and out of trouble.
