The Prophetess.It is December 1999. In the Sinai Desert, archaeologist Catherine Alexander has unearthed six ancient papyrus scrolls that reveal vital secrets--secrets that the world's governments would give anything to possess. But even more important, the seventh scroll is missing--and it contains a secret of unfathomable power. In a race against Armageddon, Catherine must outwit the FBI, Vatican operatives, and a sinister millionaire--to find that parchment.
Annotation:
While on a dig in Sinai, Catherine Alexander, an archaeologist, unearths scrolls which indicate that women may have had a larger role in ancient Catholicism than previously thought. Catherine smuggles them out of the country, but not before the Vatican, Egyptian officials, and desperate collectors get wind of her discovery, instigating an international chase.
