about

It is the most coveted of all ancient artifacts. In it is written the history—and the fate—of every human being. And he who owns it writes his own destiny. Now Indiana Jones follows a trail of danger, magic, and archaeological mystery through the war-torn Orient, from Rangoon to the Egyptian desert, searching for the secret underground hiding place of the all-powerful Omega Book. But with a beautiful woman seeking her missing magician husband, and a vengeance-crazed Japanese spymaster hot on his heels, Indy is running out of time. If the Omega Book falls into the wrong hands, not only his own fate but the fate of the world will be at the mercy of a madman bent on writing humanity’s final chapter!

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, solid Indy fun. Max McCoy is my favourite of the Indiana Jones novelists, and "The Secret of the Sphinx" is a fine example of why. More than any of the other authors, who have been good in some of their outings, McCoy honours the characters. He does not fall prey to the cheesy sentimentalism that makes Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade painful for Indy purists; instead, he makes sure that Sallah is a smart man, and not a foolish middle eastern stereotype, and he does the same with Marcus Brody, ensuring that he is an honoured professional rather than a boob. Some of the new characters McCoy introduces suffer for not having a background that we all instantly know, but these characters always fit into the story well and they do serve a purpose that is always connected to Indy (and that's what you want in an Indy adventure). If you're looking for a fun read now that the Crystal Skull has rekindled your Indy-curiosity, "The Secret of the Sphinx" is perfect for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Sphinx In the adventurous pursuit of the Omega book, a magical tome that can predict the future, Indiana Jones must first seek out the staff of Aaron, the legendary walking stick wielded by Moses to stop the Pharaoh king, part the Red Sea and bring down the ten plagues of God. It's a mystical battle from Japan to Calcutta, from Egypt's streets to the deepest regions of the Temple of the Sphinx, to find the truth and defeat a maniacal Japanese warlord intent on world domination. Very cool story. Compares to Mark Frost, Katherine Neville and Rob MacGregor.

From Our Editors

Nothing comes easy to Indiana, but he doesn’t mind. The risk is worth it for the treasured and fabled items he chases. This time it’s the mythical Omega Book, hidden in a labyrinth beneath the Sphinx at Giza. The possessor of the Omega Book can learn the personal histories and destinies of every human being. Indiana’s only concern is keeping the book out of the hands of an evil Spymaster, who wants to control human destiny. This is a lively story told by Max McCoy.
