The Fortune Teller by Gwendolyn Womack. Published by Picador

Selemie Cavnov appraises antiques for a very exclusive Manhattan auction house and on her latest search for historic texts, she finds an ancient manuscript dating back to the time of Cleopatra, one that tells of a set of tarot cards, now long-lost, that has been able to predict disasters, both manmade and natural, centuries before they occurred. Selemie belies her client Theo Broussard knows more than he’s letting on – what happened to the tarot cards and who is following Selemie? As the date of the auction approaches, she realizes someone will do anything to get their hands on the priceless artifact and it’s up to Selemie to stop them. She has a strong connection to the manuscript and the cards, but she must discover what it is to save a secret that dates back thousands of years. This is a tautly woven, thinking person’s Da Vinci Code
