From the cover: “The time is December 1999. Millennial fever holds the world in its grip — stirring ancient and terrible fears that the apocalypse terrible fears that the apocalypse is at hand. In the Sinai Desert, archaeologist Catherine Alexander has just unearthed a cache of six ancient papyrus scrolls that point to the millennium’s most transforming secret. Discovered inside what may be the legendary Well of Miriam, a site named after the ancient prophetess who was the sister of Moses, the scrolls reveal a hidden history of the world and its religions — a series of shattering revelations that governments will do anything to suppress and that an enigmatic billionaire named Miles Havers will do anything to possess.”
