The Gnostic Gospels, once believed to have been destroyed but discovered in 1945, form the basis for this thriller set in London and Cairo. Kate Reading creates the dark mood of postwar London, which is echoed in the emotions of Gemma Bastion when she learns of the suspicious death of her archaeologist father. When Gemma travels to Cairo to settle his estate, she discovers that his last project involved the Gnostic Gospel of Mary Magdalene. As the drama unfolds, the listener feels Gemma's emergence from depression through Kate Reading's quickening pace. Reading's skill with suspenseful narration builds the tension as Gemma adroitly escapes a murderer intent on stealing the Gospel. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
