Ken Holt #17 Plumed Serpent and #18 Sultan's Scimitar
Rick Brant has sent Ken three Megabucks units which are small units with which the boys can speak to each other over a small distance. This was an agreed-upon bit of cross promotion between the authors of the Ken Holt and Rick Brant series.
I greatly enjoyed this book.
On page one, I saw that the book opens in Greece. Oh, no! I have an aversion to books set in Greece because I can't stand The Greek Symbol Mystery. I hate that book!
Fortunately, this book is better than The Greek Symbol Mystery.
The book opens with the boys touring Greece. Next, the Golden Key is stolen from a museum via a ruse. Hmm... this part reminds me of the Three Investigators book, The Mystery of the Vanishing Treasure.
I enjoyed most of this book, although some parts of it weren't that interesting to me.
