Book 3: the Sherlock Files:
The Case the Time Forgot
by Tracy Barrett
Genre: Middle Grades fiction/mystery
Review: The third book in the series is even more engaging than the first two. A friend at school, Karim, asks Xena and Xander to investigate an Egyptian water clock and a missing amulet that is meant to stop time every 50 years (for his grandfather). Their journey brings them to the Timekeeper's Museum and the Big Ben clock tower, among other places. They must solve hieroglyphs and find clues to beat a mysterious person who is following their trail. There is one more book in the series, but young readers won't want it to end.
