    Description

    The Dowager Duchess has decided to sell off the less important family possessions. Blotto and Twinks are dispatched to help the valuer. He spies some Egyptian artifacts and in some excitement rushes back to London, leaving Blotto and Twinks alone in the attic, where they are drawn to a sarchophagus decorated with hieroglyphs. Twinks starts to translate: "Anyone who desecrates this shrine will be visited by the Pharoah's curse...." - just as Blotto prises the lid off.

    It's the brainy Twinks who decides the only thing to be done is to put the genie back in the bottle and so she, together with Blotto and their trusty chauffeur Corky Froggett, take the sarcophagus back to the Valley of the Kings.

    Verry funny

    Loved this book but after reading some of the reviews on goodreads I though I'd make it clear - it's a comedy, not a murder mystery, if you don't like parodies where everyone refers to each other as "me old banana sandwich" etc you won't like the book.
    In short; listen to the preview as the book is more of the same - funny characters, inventive dialog, solid (if simple) plot.

    A Full Creamy Eclair

    I love, love, love this series of books!! It took me a bit to understand Blotto and Twinks manner of speech, but once I did, wowsers!! These books are such fun! Blotto and Twinks find themselves in tight situations that appear to have no way out! But just at the last moment................all is solved!
    This book has a twist of love for Blotto!

    Big Brett fan, but this series fails

    What would have made Blotto, Twinks and the Riddle of the Sphinx better?

    Several things didn't add up. Twinks can read heiroglyphs, but doesn't know where the valley of the kings is. A sarcophagus isn't going to fit in any car-possibly a coffin, but never a sarcophagus.

    This series is humorous. This is the second in the series I have listened to. At first the humor is new and enjoyable, but after sooo many repeats, it gets old.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Simon Brett again?

    yes

    Any additional comments?

    I'd highly recommend Simon Brett's other 2 series and he is a great narrator.
