I found it difficult to keep up with who was who at certain times during the book as it switched from character to character within the same chapters. This at times made it difficult to follow and in turn hard to read. Bits of it were interesting and I felt like I learned historical facts throughout. But it wasn’t enough to keep me engaged.

This story begins with an archaeologist named Rachel.  She is hired fresh out of college by a mysterious benefactor to go to Egypt close to where the dead sea scrolls were found to do a dig.  She discovers parchments rolled up in large stone containers.  Her guide is killed, and she is kidnapped.  The story is then picked up about 30 or 40 years later.

Two books are stolen from a museum.  A woman is kidnapped, and cryptic emails are received.  Rachel's nephew is the only person that can figure out what is going on.

I had a little difficulty keeping up who was who.  The story switches between different groups of people.  However, I believe that the difficulty was mine, as I had troubles concentrating.  The story is excellent, and I'd love to see a sequel.  It would be interesting to explore the secrets in the scrolls.  I kept thinking about story even when I had to take a break from reading it.
