With the discovery of the eerily similar Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947, investigators reopened the case, wondering whether the ill-fated merchant had in fact discovered the first Dead Sea Scroll decades before the rest. But by then Shapira's scrolls had vanished. Award-winning journalist Chanan Tigay set out to find the scrolls and determine Shapira's guilt or innocence for himself. The globetrotting hunt that followed vibrates with the suspense of a classic detective tale.
Weaving meticulous research into fast-paced storytelling, Tigay spins a remarkable tale of history and theology; intrigue and scandal; greed, ambition, and the struggle for authenticity.

It's easy to go on a treasure hunt if you're certain of the outcome. This journey, however, is the exact opposite. The twists & turns, blind alleys, disappointments and surprises make this a true adventure. I won't spoil the ending but I guarantee that it won't be what you are expecting.
If you have any interest at all in ancient manuscripts, you will love this book.
