Journalist Maureen Pascal discovers that she is destined to play a key role in an international quest to gain control of a priceless series of scrolls, written in the first century by Mary Magdalene and hidden in the wilds of the French Pyrenees.
Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the rocky foothills of the French Pyrenees, a gospel that contained her own version of the events and characters of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of The Expected One. When journalist Maureen Pascal 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 have killed and died for it. Maureen's journey takes her from the dusty streets of Jerusalem to the cathedrals of Paris--and ultimately to search for the scrolls themselves.--From publisher description.

Those who enjoyed the discussions of art and religion, but not the violence of The DaVinci Code will appreciate McGowan's series. Fans of Anne Rice's Christ the Lord will especially enjoy the second half of The Expected One
