Publisher's Summary

The time is December 1999. Millennial fever holds the world in its grip - stirring ancient and terrible fears that the apocalypse is at hand.In the Sinai desert, archeologist Catherine Alexander just unearthed a cache of six ancient papyrus scrolls that point to the millennium's most transforming secret. Discovered inside the legendary Well of Miriam, a site named after the ancient prophetess who was the sister of Moses, the scrolls reveal a hidden history of the world and its religions - a series of shattering revelations that governments will do anything to suppress, and that an enigmatic billionaire named Miles Havers will do anything to possess.But there is more: a seventh scroll that contains a secret of almost unimaginable power. It is a secret that may cost Catherine her life as she dodges government agents, Vatican operatives, and cyberspace perils in her race to translate the scrolls and release their powers to the world.Aided by two very different and compelling men, Dr. Julius Voss and Father Michael Garibaldi, Catherine finds herself caught up in the adventure of a lifetime and a struggle that she must win.

Narrator really put me off this book

This narrator - overly melodramatic to the point that I thought she would start crying at times (where the story did not call for it) really colored my appreciation of this book. I will actively avoid any other books this narrator does. I was looking forward to this audiobook after listening to the author's Virgins of Paradise which I really really enjoyed. I cannot say whether the narrator just put me off the story or whether the story was indeed weak. Whichever, I would say pass this one up.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I found the narrator to be tedious and did not finish the book this time.
