  BOOKLIST (starred review) 

CAN THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY BE SOLVED IN A NEW YORK MINUTE?

Lexi McGill and her younger brother Kevin are spending their summer in New York City with their colorful actress aunt. Fitting into the hustle and bustle is tough enough for these small-towners, but when Lexi overhears a plot to hide Cleopatra's jewels after being stolen from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, their low-key summer turns into a high-stakes adventure.

With the whole world waiting for the crime to be solved, Lexi and Kevin join forces with budding investigative journalist Kim Ling Levine to track down the thieves and rake in the reward money. But can they solve the mystery of the missing treasure before the Big Apple bites back?
