Titles 3 and 4 in the exciting new series for 8-12 year olds that uses real forensics to solve fictional mysteries.Millie Nyall is about to her unveil her most exciting new museum exhibit: the gold mask of the famous pharaoh Ramses the Second (he lived to be 96 and had 200 wives). But all she reveals is extraordinarily shrill lungs as she screams: the mask is missing!Two child detectives (11-year-old Zac and Hannah) lead the reader through the clues and help them piece together all the forensic science methods used, such as DNA fingerprint plotting; tracking where your money goes, and where it has been, using the Money Tracker website; explosive residue analysis; following footprints (even toe prints) to calculate the weight, height and gender of a suspect; acoustic analysis of a rock song; forensic odontology (the examination of evidence left by teeth); using ultraviolet and infrared radiation to read burnt documents; and QEMSCAN - a scanning electron microscope that is used to analyse ancient treasures.Each chapter will present a new piece of the mystery and accompanying forensic clues, which are explained in more detail in breakout boxes.
