Finnegan lives with his uncle, a mystery writer, because his parents are off on an anthropological expedition. On their prior expedition, they uncovered golden artifacts and brought some home. Finnegan learns about them when his parents' storage area, in the basement of his uncle's apartment building, is broken into.

Finnegan is mildly engaging, working on the mystery himself and leaping to new conclusions with every new clue. The story is more silly than suspenseful. Might be a hit with younger readers. ( )
