There's a thief loose in al-Baawete, Egypt.

Thirteen-year-old ‘Arif Bassam, al-Baawete’s best codebreaker, teams up with Detective Ghaabee, al-Baawete’s most incompetent detective, to try to decode the secret messages the thief delivers to the police before he commits his daring crimes. But the thief uses a constantly changing cipher, and if ‘Arif can’t decode his messages in time, al-Baawete will become the shame of Misr. Can 'Arif decode and defeat the thief or are some codes too tough for even him to crack? 

Ciphertexts, daring thefts, and a boy detective readers will love inshaa'Allaah. The Periodic Thefts is a must read this summer!
