When journalist Maureen Paschal begins the research for a new book, she has no idea that she is stepping into an ancient mystery so secret, so revolutionary, that thousands of people have killed and died for it. Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the rocky wilds of the French Pyrenees that contained her own version of the events and characters of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could only be uncovered by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of The Expected One. Unraveling clues that link history's greatest artistic masters and scientific minds, Maureen's extraordinary journey takes her from the dusty streets of Jerusalem to the cathedrals of Paris. And when a long-buried family secret comes to light, it begins to appear as if the eerie prophecy of The Expected One may indeed be fulfilled.
