Miles apart an ancient scroll is stolen before its revelations are fully translated, and an American priest with long-hidden secrets becomes pope.

Dan Brown, only much better

If you enjoyed Da Vinci Code, or any of Dan Brown's books, you owe it to yourself to try The Second Messiah. It's a sweeping novel with global ramifications. And the plot is not nearly as facile as Mr. Brown's books. The characters are more fully developed and their actions actually make sense. And plot points are not nearly so predictable. It's a thoroughly enjoyable read/listen. Be aware, it is an 'inspirational' novel, although that wasn't quite clear to me before I purchased it. It treads very lightly in that area, though, and I doubt that anyone would find that aspect off-putting. Still, you might want to now....

Finally, George Guidall's read is exceptional. I've been listening to audiobooks for 20+ years, and this is one of the best performances I've ever heard.

Tries too hard to copy Dan Brown

The narrator was great, as always, and I thought Mr. Meade's previous book "The Sands of Sakkara" (now titled Mission Sphinx and only available in German on audible for some reason??) was much much better. This book was a struggle to finish, and unabashedly tries to emulate the story style and even plot twists found in Dan Brown books, but does so poorly.
