3 of 6 people found the following review helpful: not a medical thriller, July 26, 2003 Reviewer: kathleen o'brien from Montreal, Canada Sphinx is not a medical thriller like almost of Robin Cook's book. This book showcases his abilities in a completely different light. The story is exciting , never boring. The story is about a woman called Erica Baron, who is interesting in Egyptology and goes to Egypt. In a souvenir shop, she saw a murderer, and then she investigates about the murderer and because some precious object disappeared in the black market. There are a lot of suspense and action . Two people try to kill her, if you want to know more, read it ! All in all, it's a good book
