The soldiers stiffened at attention, but there was still a stirring in the ranks. Their faces held wide-eyed fear. Field Marshal Idi Nkromo turned with deliberate casualness and looked across the barren expanse of desert--the same direction the army was looking. His saber fell from his trembling hand an clattered on the stones and sand.

Who could have excavated, caved, and transported the colossal stone? The Coopers' uneasiness soon turns into dread as they are watched and threatened by the country's new government and brutal dictator Idi Nkromo. Follow the Coopers as they race to solve the mystery of the desert stone! Recommended for ages 10 to 14, 156 pages.
