Audible Editor Reviews

The discovery of ancient tomes with magical power seems to be a subgenre of its own. In this short audiobook of Anne Perry’s mystery The Scroll, an old vellum manuscript is uncovered by a bookseller. In a classic British accent that seems to roll along a gravel road, Alan Robertson relates the mysterious properties of the scroll and the horror it seems to summon. Strange characters and powerful forces seek possession of this seeming relic, and one man’s courage and nerve is tested. At just over an hour’s running length, The Scroll is for those who like a little shot of the willies before bedtime.

Publisher's Summary

Short tales about deadly books, by top mystery authors

An ancient scroll draws a bookseller into a chilling mystery.

Monty Danforth finds the tin buried beneath a shipment of leather-bound classics. Inside is a millennia-old vellum manuscript written in an unfamiliar but unmistakably ancient language. Danforth tries to photocopy and photograph it, but he ends up with blank images, as though the ink were made of something impervious to modern technology. As the scroll’s mystery enchants him, this hapless bookseller falls into a cutthroat conspiracy that he may never escape.

Soon a dead-eyed old man and his granddaughter come calling for the scroll. Danforth refuses to sell them the manuscript, but they will not be the last to demand it. Powerful forces crave the secrets locked within this ancient document, and Danforth will survive only if he can master its power.
