DOA Detective Files: Revenge Of The Pharaoh
DOA Detective Files: Revenge Of The Pharaoh is the second adventure of a group of unlikely detectives. This time they‘re off to Egypt, in the time of the Pharaos in a desperate attempt to save an ancient kingdom.
Chintan Desai, Katrina and Paagal Pappu are three kids who were brought together by a strange ad in a newspaper. They called the number listed and soon became part of an unusual detective agency called DOA.

This adventure takes these Mumbai kids even farther away from home and further back in time. They are summoned by a dead Pharaoh of the Horus line to help the current Pharaoh, Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut is in danger of losing the throne. The Sceptre of Ra has been stolen and unless it is recovered within a specified time, she will have to give up her position to the young prince-in-waiting.
The DOA detectives find that they have a lot more in store than just recovering a sceptre. They get involved in politics and palace intrigue as they encounter dire situations.
The young detectives must now use their wits to escape these dangers and find the sceptre and the person who stole it. It is not just Hatshepsut's position and power and the reputation of the agency at stake. If the DOA detectives fail, Hatshepsut has promised to feed them to the crocodiles.
