About

A convoluted and often ridiculous, if also enjoyable, thriller. Professor Peck, who knows a thing or two about Arabic hieroglyphics, is enlisted to decipher messages, which may provide a vital key to foiling a plot to assassinate a Middle Eastern Prime Minister. All this is merely an excuse for jetting from one spectacular setting to the next, chalking up several murders and chases on the way.
