The Atlas family is in trouble. Jake, 12, hides an addiction to stealing. Twin sister Pan conceals her genius, for fear of bullies. They can’t stop fighting – with each other and with their parents, stuffy professors of Ancient History.
But Jake and Pan’s lives change the day they discovers their ‘boring’ parents once led an ultra high-tech group of tomb robbers. Now, their dad has vanished.
To find him, they must team up with shady tomb robbers, master high-tech gadgets, and locate a lost tomb somewhere in Egypt. Hardest of all, they must work with their mum.
Their adventure leads them across Egypt, through sandstorms and tsunamis, to secret tunnels and submerged islands…
Part Mission Impossible, part Indiana Jones, Jake Atlas and the Tomb of the Emerald Snake is the story of a family, lost, that finds itself in the deserts of Egypt.
