Publisher's Summary

The Pope's health is failing and the Cardinal Secretary of State, the ruthless Lorenzo Petroni, has the Keys to St. Peter within his grasp. Three things threaten to destroy him: Cardinal Giovanni Donelli has started an investigation into the Vatican Bank; journalist Tom Schweiker is looking into Petroni's past; and, even more dangerously, the brilliant Dr. Allegra Bassetti, one of the world's foremost authorities on archaeological DNA, is piecing together fragments of the Omega Scroll in war-torn Jerusalem. At the CIA's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, Mike McKinnon is investigating a number of missing nuclear suitcase bombs and suspects they are connected to the warning in the Omega Scroll. In the Judaean Desert a few more grains of sand trickle from the wall of a cave. The countdown for civilisation has begun.

Audible Editor Reviews

Performer Jim Daly has his work cut out for him in this audiobook thriller by Adrian d'Hage. Daly must not only explicate difficult exposition, he must voice characters ranging from Italian cardinals to Australian journalists and American intelligence officials. Luckily for the listener, Daly is a master.
The Omega Scroll is a thriller in the vein of Dan Brown: politics, religion, ancient relics, and, most of all, power are the forces that drive a consortium of talented men fighting against a ticking clock. Listen for thrills and for the integrity of Daly's performance.

Gripping book but too heavy for me.

What did you like best about The Omega Scroll? What did you like least?

I liked how the scrolls were retrieved by the right people and how Cardinal donelli became pope instead of Patroni. I hated that some people who stood for good and peace died.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Don't know.


What about Jim Daly’s performance did you like?

He was excellent at using different accents.


Did The Omega Scroll inspire you to do anything?

No.


Any additional comments?

I'm glad I got through to the end of this book but once again, too much bloodshed and too much violence for my liking. I'm glad Patroni didn't get his way, or his grubby mitts on the keys of St. Peter.

Terrible book

This was the only audiobook I've ever given up on! Dreadful. The voice was almost as bad as the story.
