Excellent mystical/historical/fictional murder mystery. The original manuscripts (scrolls) of the book were actually written at the time the book takes place in the early 1500's. The current author has translated from the original ... but a surprise and most mystical experience led to the discovery of the manuscripts and the translator's ability to even read them - they were written in a language no longer in contemporary use, but a specialty of the author. An excellent read and a most mystical experience.
