"Fine romantic suspense"

In 1200, God's messenger provides the predictions to a scribe. Upon completing the writings on scrolls, the scribe hands off the finished products to Doctore Alexander Mendeneres and his ancestors for safekeeping.

In the present, the modern day Alexander knows the world is in trouble because his wife Valerie has stolen the scrolls from their Argentina home. Valerie has taken them to Manhattan where she expects to make a lot of money with their sale. A desperate Alex, knowing it is not time to reveal the scrolls, uses their ten years old daughter Maria, whom he loves deeply, as a sacrifice to bring Valerie into the open. However, everything goes wrong and Maria ends up with editor Dani Arnold. Alex catches up to the two women and persuades Dani to help protect Maria while he goes after Valerie, not realizing the danger he places the two females he loves or will soon love.

First up this romantic suspense is not part of the Vegas- Kentucky-Texas glitter dome. Instead THE FUTURE SCROLLS is an interesting thriller in which the characters feel stereotyped so much so that the audience will feel that Fern Michaels was satirizing the sub-genre especially with Maria, an adult at ten and the vintage dirty rats of a roaring twenties variety thugs. Still, fans of Ms. Michaels and those readers under siege over smoking in public places will enjoy this tale.
