An appraiser discovers a rare manuscript that talks of an ancient tarot deck saved from the flames that destroyed the Library of Alexandria. As Semele translates, she is shocked to find her name in the manuscript several times. How did that happen, and what happened to the deck of cards that once accompanied this strange manuscript? The Fortune Teller has a fantastic Katherine Neville feel to it. While nothing will top The Eight, this is a worthy successor in the line of fun treasure hunts. If you're a fan of Neville or Anne Fortier's books, you should definitely check this one out. - John
