Robin Cook is known primarily for his medical dramas. Despite Erica Baron's unbelievable character, the book is entertaining.

Robin Cook is known primarily for his medical dramas. However, Sphinx is more of a thriller drama, focusing on the antiques black market in Egypt. The main character is Erica Baron, an American who has always yearned to visit Egypt and see firsthand the culture that inspired her to become an Egyptologist. I grew up reading Robin Cook's medical dramas featuring Dr. Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton. Sphinx' effortlessly transports readers into an enigmatic Egypt, entangling them in the ugly black market trade of Egyptian artifacts.

I am an avid fan of Dr. Cook. While this lies outside of his usual medical related, I found it an enjoyable read. There was enough suspense to keep me reading long after I should have gone to bed.
Sphinx is my second-favorite Cook novel as of May 2011. I have only read four of them so far though. This one is a bit more memorable than the others because of the massive amount of info about Egyptian culture that the book contains. It is a firm thriller and it lives up to its genre well with mysterious characters, betrayals, ancient evils and secrets, and a protagonist getting involved in something bigger than she could have ever thought possible when she went to Egypt. It is one of the best novels I have ever read for its capturing of a foreign place and for that I respect it greatly. It also has a good story despite the familiar sounding plot and a likeable female main character who really knows her stuff, Egyptian stuff that is.

Cook usually writes about the medical world. I was beginning to think that was all he was comfortable writing about. However. Sphinx is very good and I enjoyed every minute of it. He shows me he is the great writer I always thought he is.
I love this author..
Everything about this book from story to character development to Egypt charm, is praiseworthy.
My only reservation is the old style of text or you may call it publication
I mean if you compare this book to contemporary mass market editions, there's huge difference in text format. With this book it is narrow line format which makes difficult to concentrate.
I think this book needs new edition .
....but I don't think the heroine's actions have stood the test of time! I enjoyed reading it again, but what was probably "cutting edge feminism" in 1981 today reminds me of one of those Virginia Slims commercials from the same decade "You've got your own cigarette now, baby..." LOL
Joe Reynolds Very good book and particular to people that have visited Egypt and can visualize the areas described.
Reading the book was like being back in Egypt. Lots of action and some surprises but I will not post any spoilers. Well written and the damsel can handle herself pretty well and is not the more typical heroine in novels who is mostly a helpless idiot. A very enjoyable read.
Found myself holding my breath. Felt like I was there in Egypt with Erica. Loved the landscape descriptions. Frightening great read.
