In the rocky wilds of the French Pyrenees, rests a series of scrolls, written in the first century by Mary Magdalene. These startling documents hold the power to redefine the events and characters of the New Testament, and can only be uncovered by a special seeker, one who has been chosen for the task by divine providence - The Expected One. When journalist, Maureen Paschal begins research for a new book, she has no idea that she is stepping into an ancient mystery so complex and dangerous that thousands of people have killed and died for it. As Maureen uncovers a long buried family scandal, she can no longer deny her own role in a deadly drama of epic international consequences. Based on twenty years of research, "The Expected One" is a page-turning thriller which ranges across the globe and through time to penetrate the very heart of the Magdalene mystery. "The Expected One" is the first book in the "Magdalene Line" trilogy.
