The Scroll

Now available on Audible:

The ScrollBy Anne PerryNarrated By Alan Robertson

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.

Women & Woodstock appearances

Not long until Women at Woodstock now!  Pick your time and place, and join us.  I am looking forward to meeting scores of women with ideas about goals to accomplish, dreams to fulfil and all sorts of ways to do that.  It only takes one spark in the mind, And the encouragement of friends, and new businesses, works of art or healing, movements for change can be created.  Above all friends can be made.  What we can do together far outweighs what we do alone.  Best of all, it will be fun!  Take the time off, if you can, and be part of it.  I mean to be.   Anne
