Arriving in Paris on business, technical troubleshooter Maggie Purcell finds time to head for the flea market, where she discovers the perfect souvenir for her terminally-ill sister, Beth. An ancient scroll, mysteriously wrapped with the gift, catapults Maggie and her co-worker Reeve Hawkins into a world of kidnap and pursuit after the shopkeeper falls victim to a brutal murder. The action jets from Europe to the USA, and then to the Middle East, the apparent origin of the scroll, where the pursuers make it clear they will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Maggie and Reeve find themselves menaced by those who would take back the scroll and at odds with each other over what could prove to be a Dead Sea Scroll. Could the scroll be traced back to the time of Jesus Christ? What is His connection to it? What secrets does it hide? "The Scroll" is an intelligent, fast-paced thriller by a bright new talent, Cat LeDevic.

Great Book! Mar 11, 2007
The Scroll is a great book. From the moment I picked it up, I couldn't put it down! I loved the book, and cannot wait for the second installment of the trilogy! I have given one to my mother and a few friends as a gift,I liked it so much. A must read.
A Pearl among stones.... Jul 12, 2006
This genre, the spiritual mystery/thriller has become very popular of late. At my local bookstore the shelves are packed with dozens of variations on the theme, but this one stands alone. It has a unique perspective and offers the reader the opportunity to be taken along on the adventure of a lifetime. I won't reveal a single detail of the book, you need to read this one for yourself, but whatever you do, don't miss out, order yours today! Cat Ledevic has done a marvelous job and I can hardly wait for the other two parts of this trilogy. Write on Cat, write on!! The world needs your imagination and creativity.
James Patterson, step aside. :) Jul 11, 2006
This novel kept me glued from the first page and the fast thrilling pace carried through to the end. I am an avid reader of James Patterson, John Grisham and Stephen King. I have to admit Cat LeDevic novels will now be added to that list!!!
This story finally shows a strong, female protagonist in Maggie. She is tough, determined and overcomes witnessing a murder, to being kidnapped, to having to rush her dying sister to the hospital while combatting global terrorists who want what a dying shopkeeper gave to her, the scroll. This parchment had mighty powers, it is an incredibly story that unfolds and I don't want to spoil too much of it, but suffice to say this novel will leave you breathless!!!!
