Scripted by John Byrum from a Robin Cook novel, this is basically Coma-goes-to-Egypt, with smuggling statuettes replacing smuggling live organs. Striking use of locations, but lousy script, uneasy heroine, and weak material. A clear case of a lame project that only a 'best selling' (ie. heavily pre-sold) novel could have financed. Avoid.
