Indiana Jones Wiki

Indiana Jones and the Secret of the Sphinx is the twelfth and final novel in Bantam's popular Indy series, and the fourth by author Max McCoy.

Publisher's summary[]

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!





Behind the scenes[]

In the novel, Indiana Jones states that he'll be turning 35 in 1934, placing the story sometime after the events of Indiana Jones and the Hollow Earth but before his birthday on July 1.

Clement Lindley Wragge, a meteorologist known for starting the naming of cyclones, is mentioned as a current friend of Montgomery Bryce, though the historical Wragge died in 1922, twelve years before the events of the book.
