Dora, Lady Ware, her husband, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, his boss, Wickie, and Wickie’s wife, Jane, all travel to the Sphinx outside Cairo for the Christmas holidays when Edward’s mother, the Dowager Lady Ware, comes to visit in the 1930’s between the wars.
There are mystery figures hanging about even on top of the Sphinx and Dora cannot quite make them out. When she is left alone for a moment, a stalker approaches her and threatens her if she does not hand over the military maps that they want.
She flees and the stalker chases her. She finds herself on top of the Sphinx with a spitting cobra, only to be saved by Leopold, a young man who has befriended her.
But he is suddenly gunned down. But whom? And who is Leopold? Dora had better find out or she could soon be dead, too, in Egyptian Spy, a new thriller by Dora Benley.
Recent Reader Reviews:
Ginger Pollard: This was a Goodreads win. Thank you, Goodreads. A fast paced little mystery. Enjoyable and laugh out loud funny at times.
Mary: It was amazing. A great storyline that kept my attention throughout.
Miriam: I received a copy of his novel from a Goodreads Giveaway and I’m glad that I was selected. This novel is riveting and filled with action and suspense. It’s too bad that Lord Ware is such a schlock even if he’s described as handsome.
Melinda M: Egyptian Spy by Dora Benley is a mystery set in Egypt during the 1930’s between the two wars. It is also set during the Christmas Holiday which makes it very interesting. It is a little difficult at times to follow but the basic story is good. I like the time period and Egypt so it was interesting to me.
