Lily learns that the most obvious answer is not always the correct one. Our learning-disabled protagonist has always doubted her mental abilities. However, upon discovering a magical Egyptian world in her attic, Lily knows that her mother's rescue is up to her. She meets her mother's ancestor on her forays up the stairs, and with her help she uncovers clues that the police have overlooked. With a ransom exchange fallen through, Lily desperately puts the final piece of the puzzle in place and discovers that the kidnapper is a trusted member of the family's circle. Disillusioned by envy of the family’s wealth, the culprit hunts Lily even as she attempts to mount solo her mother's dramatic nighttime rescue.
