What’s this upper middle grade novel about?

Touching down in Cairo, Egypt, twelve-year-old Max Mead understands nothing.  His grandfather, a famous antiquities expert, has gone missing and his father, a librarian at the British Museum in London, hasn’t a clue where to find him.  A magical encounter with an object from his grandfather’s collection sends Max back in time where he uncovers family secrets that his father has been hiding for years.  After a quarrel with his father, Max teams-up with a local Egyptian boy named Youssef and together they set off in search of Max’s grandfather.  It is only after the boys fall into a trap set by a ruthless antiquities trafficking gang that Max discovers he is a pawn in his grandfather’s scheme to recover stolen treasure.
