The 1977 Journal of Zeke Moorie
(The fourth book in the Crime Through Time series)
A novel by Bill Doyle
Each book in the Crime Through Time series is hosted by a different child member of the famous Fitzmorgan detective family. While the young sleuth unravels a fictional mystery, readers learn about the real historical setting and actual crime-solving methods from the different eras. In sidebar activities, readers take on the role of assistant, helping to crack the case. Breathtakingly suspenseful but never violent and always age-appropriate, the books read like private investigative journals, with photos, maps, news clippings and crime scene sketches. Zeke Moorie joins a disco tour intended to fundraise and attract youth to a traveling King Tut exhibition. But he soon finds that it's not all fun and games. A plot is afoot involving a newly discovered ankh necklace that may have belonged to the Pharaoh, and a box that's been locked for thousands of years.
