An enjoyable older book of Robin Cook's...

While waiting at the ice arena last night for Ian to finish his shift (it was snowing and I didn't want him driving), I finished Sphinx by Robin Cook. This is one of his older books (1979) and is the first one of his I've read that wasn't a medical thriller. I got the recommendation from Ben Poole, and it was a good one. The story involves an Egyptologist named Erica Barton who travels to Egypt to do some translation work and to satisfy a dream to go there. She quickly gets emeshed in two murders and the trafficing of antiquities, as well as some personal issues involving her boyfriend and some mysterious people who are not quite what they seem to be.

The story moves quickly and keeps your attention. Considering I'm not really into archeology, I enjoyed this novel more than I though I would.
