The Omega Scroll | [Adrian d'Hage]

The Omega Scroll

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.

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.

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.

    "Terrible book"

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

    "OK but..."

    Obvious knockoff of Dan Brown that spends much of its length as an anti religion diatribe. Hardest on Catholics but gives Evangelicals, Jews and Islam a few whacks too. Plot develops in a very predictable manner. Fairly PC in tone. That said, it is an OK listen if you don't have something better to do.

    "Don't Bother"

    This book was terrible from the beginning. Part of the problem was the narration. He was just so flat and dull. I listened to the first seven hours in hopes that something was going to happen. It didn't. I listened for 3 more hours and finally gave up. Not worth the time or money.

    "Unbelievably Bad Narration"

    Very hard to listen to this reader, he gives every single character (American, Italian, Israeli, Palestinian, Irish...) a buffoonish accent, and all the "bad guys" sound extremely drunk. The book is pretty good, but not great, it certainly can't withstand the terrible reading.

    "Better narration, please"

    This might be a really interesting book. The plot seems intricate and engrossing -- as much of it as I could take in before the narration turned me off entirely. The narrator seems to believe that all Americans are brainless clods who twang in cowboy boots at the top of their lungs. The purported American accents are as false-sounding as they are offensive. I'm not very picky, but this was just too much.

    "Great Story"

    The Omega Scroll is a great story. It has superb character development. I really enjoyed the plot, and the narrator is not as bad as the other reviewers make it seem. My only warning about this book is that it deals with corruption in the Vatican. If you can't deal with that, then move on, but you'll miss a great story!

    "A most enjoyable book."

    This is a great book. Although fictional, its inclusion of actual historical events makes it quite entertaining as well as informative. I recommend it.
