Our young crime-solvers from The Trunk of Stars (Stolen Treasures Book 1) are back! Cairo, living happily with Astrid, and Felix, back for the summer from boarding school, find themselves intrigued by a jewelry theft.
Though Cairo promised herself that she would not get involved with anything of this kind ever again, she allows herself to be drawn into the mystery by Felix’s determination to seek the truth and her desire to help Astrid.
