"Secrets in the Fairy Chimneys" has it all. The story is set in exotic Istanbul and Cappadocia, a land of enchanted caves and rock formations. The plot involves ancient mysteries, archaeological secrets, and thieves who will commit murder rather than give up the treasures they steal. Annie acquires new friends. Cedric Zeeks is trying to find a link between his African ancestors and the inhabitants of a 9,000 year old town in Cappadocia. Yelda and Ahmet Atsut, twins with a Ouija board and awesome sleuthing talents, help Annie and boyfriend, Ty Egan, solve the mysteries, both the ancient ones and the ones that threaten them as they work the archaeological dig.

Still, as the three head to Nevshehir, Annie is buoyed by the excitement surrounding ancient Turkey and the possibility of uncovering secrets. The dig is plagued by accidents and theft, however, and the three friends, assisted by the head archaeologist’s twins, must search the ancient city of Istanbul and the caves of fantastic Cappadocia to ﬁnd who is sabotaging their work. In this young adult thriller, detective Annie Tillery must once again walk a dangerous path in an attempt to unravel a complicated mystery and solve the secrets in the eerie fairy chimneys.
