On a business trip to Paris, Maggie Purcell buys the perfect gift for her terminally ill sister: a calligraphy love letter. But an ancient scroll, mysteriously wrapped with the gift, catapults Maggie and her business associate Reeve into a world of kidnapping and pursuit after the shopkeeper falls victim to a brutal murder and dies before her eyes. Maggie and Reeve flee back to the States where they soon learn that the scroll is not, as Maggie had believed, a stylized fake. Written in ancient Aramaic, it is a Dead Sea Scroll that dates back to the lifetime of Jesus Christ. Signs indicate that it may have been written by Christ himself, but as the secrets of the scroll begin to reveal themselves to Maggie, she can hardly believe what she's stumbled upon.
Battling terrorism, torture and kidnapping, Maggie and Reeve find themselves caught up in an ancient battle of good vs. evil, and a miracle she could have never even hoped for as she fights her ever-increasing attraction to Reeve.
The first in a trilogy, The Scroll by Cat LeDevic is a 5-star non-stop thrill ride highly reviewed on Amazon. The second book, tentatively titled Sembaru, is scheduled for a 2013 release.
The e-book version will be available in four parts: the first (The Scroll Part 1) should be available 8/10/12: the others following in three week intervals.

The Scroll came to me one night as a classic what-if question: what if Christ wrote something to be intentionally found in the future? And what if the contents shook several religions at their very roots?
Had I any idea of the amount of research involved... I might have thought twice about such an undertaking. Carbon 14 dating, the exact make-up of a Dead Sea scroll including the ink used and the scroll material itself - these things along with many other details kept me up many nights however what I learned was fascinating.
The Scroll may well be fiction, but details such as the Lost Tribe are absolute truth as is most information regarding the Muslim religion, with which I was unfamiliar.
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 with it? What secrets does it hide?
The Scroll is an intelligent, fast-paced thriller by a bright new talent, Cat LeDevic.
