Murder at the Sphinx Gets New Reader Review:

We have a brand new review for Dora Benley’s Murder at the Sphinx on by Cheri Clay:

She put her hand to her belly and imagined she felt Edward’s baby move. She waited far too long already. Lawrence maps or no, intrigue or no, she was going to take the plunge.”

Edward and Dora have waited since the great war to be together. Nineteen long years later, and after the death of Dora’s husband, they are now to be married. However, their wedding day was not as planned as “H, the faceless ghoul in blue”, shouts “da gozee” at them from the gallery as It cuts a British uniform to shreds and dropping it to the floor below…

What a spellbinding tale of intrigue, murder, suspense and yes even romance! The story of Edward and Dora’s love affair is powerfully emotional, but add the twist of intrigue and suspense surrounding the Lawrence maps and you have a novel that grabs hold and won’t let go.

There is more to this story, as hiding in the shadows are secrets and lies just waiting to be revealed. What happened to Edward the years he was missing and thought dead? Who is Leopold, the young man who seems to be on a quest to kill Dora, only to save her life time and time again, as Edward grows more impatient with the young boy wanting nothing more than to do away with him?

Heart-stopping suspense that readers will not want to end. Exceptionally written, memorable characters and a story line, not to be forgotten, leaving one powerfully charged novel that readers of suspense will not want to miss.
