"When your read this, I'll be dead…"

These are the troubling words Serena Charter's grandmother has written on a note accompanying four pages of a centuries-old illuminated manuscript delivered after the old woman's passing.

Seeking clues to the mystery laid out before her, Serena turns to Erik North, a reclusive manuscript appraiser with a passion for the past. Erik's examination of the vellum pages raises perplexing questions – about Serena's legacy, the possible location of the remainder of the manuscript…and the senseless murder of an eccentric old woman.

Suddenly, Serena and Erik find themselves in the center of a firestorm that rages between two worlds…a past long dead yet living on in an ancient text and a contemporary landscape fraught with terror. Now, there is no one they trust except each other as they get closer to a shocking revelation about what is really at stake and how far a killer will go to possess a vanished treasure.

    " This was a book that I picked up and thought that it would be interesting. I did not know the author. I am not sure why I picked it, but sure am glad that I did. A grandmother dies and her grand-daughter is left pages of manuscript that is centuries old. Not sure if they are worth anything, she starts researching them. She would have never even thought of where her journey would take her. Frequently I read books about a subject matter that I am not particularly interented in, but then I get caught up in the story and find that I am learning a lot. This happened in the story of the manuscript. A bit of a love story. A few good guys and tons of bad guys (isn't there always). Kept me on the edge of my seat. Was a great read. Sure am glad that I picked up this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisa | 12/27/2013

    " This book is horribly overwritten and if I had been reading it, I probably would have been groaning out loud much more than I was, but it made for a pretty good book to listen to on CD, since it was fast paced and full of action. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 9/29/2013

    " This book started just a little slow. I've had it for years and just decided to pick it up as part of of my 2011 reading goal and I'm glad I did. A fun thriller that wasn't too gory and had some sexy romance too :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elcee | 9/23/2013

    " I enjoyed the book and think that Elizabeth Lowell does her homework before writing her novels. Characters sometimes are a bit undeveloped and motivations unclear. Usually the plot still gets me in. "

    " OK, but not thrilling. "

    " This book surprised me. After reading the reviews, I didn't have high hopes, but I really liked it. The story was intriguing and there was a nice balance of suspense, supernatural and romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Casey | 8/5/2013

    " Typical Elizabeth Lowell. Not bad, not great. An easy escape for taking into the bath, or unwinding before bed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randi | 5/22/2013

    " Liked this book - but I usually like anything that Lowell writes. I loved the whimsy intermixed with the mystery of this book. Looking forwarding to reading the next Rarities Unlimited book. "

    " I was hoping this would be a good series but I did not like the audio version or the person that read it. The characters were pretty dull and the plot was lackluster. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 8/20/2012

    " I thought this was a bit overrated. They gave out a lot of clues and tried to throw in some sex for interest sake. Not a greeat book. "

    " I expected a little more mystic elements or a little less. It just didn't feel like it had the right balance. Interesting topic, though, if you like are beyond painting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 8/3/2011

    " This was the first book I've read by this author and while I wasn't very impressed with this book, it wasn't bad enough that I wouldn't try another book by this author. Just didn't find it that interesting; storyline wasn't that great and the characters uninteresting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Salsadancer | 11/23/2010

    " Suspense novel about a weaver and art collectors/dealers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Saadia | 10/22/2010

    " Interesting contemporary thriller, romance, and pursuit of an esoteric artifact. Great atmosphere, dialogue, give and take. Oodles of alpha males and strong intelligent females populating the story.
    I don't know anything about palimpsests and I am learning a lot! "
