Still struggling with nightmares from the past summer, Terry tries to bury her secret guilt and enjoy her family’s first Christmas in Devonshire. But when a murdered man is found with a postcard addressed to her, Terry fears the repercussions from that fateful night in Egypt are becoming a reality.
After she receives a coded message from Awad, Terry and her best friend Maude are thrown into the hunt for a lost medallion, an artifact that possesses a great power—and a gruesome destiny. As each clue leads to more disturbing truths (and bodies), Terry begins to suspect she’s the real target of the search. When Awad goes missing, she becomes certain the Illuminati are involved, and has no choice but to risk losing the thing she cherishes the most to get him back.
But Terry will soon discover the secrets of the tomb cannot be erased by distance or power, because the ghosts of her past are closing in quickly… and this time, they refuse to stay buried.
I have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed Medallion of Murder, the third book in the Nefertari Hughes mystery series! While it is geared to young adults, I found myself completely immersed into the mayhem surrounding Nefertari “Terry” Hughes and her Scooby Doo gang.
I loved the characters – each and every one of them, and I especially enjoyed the fact that right until the end, I had no idea who the bad guy was.
The plot is full of twists and turns that kept me turning pages to see what happened next. I loved that the book was steeped in ancient Egyptian history.
I am really excited for the next book in the series!
