Cover Reveal: The Fortune Teller by Gwendolyn Womack



Title: The Fortune Teller
Author: Gwendolyn Womack
Publisher: Picador USA

Publication Date: June 6, 2017
Genres: Mystery, Romantic Suspense



Semele Cohen appraises antiquities for an exclusive Manhattan
auction house, specializing in deciphering ancient texts. And
when she discovers a manuscript written in the time of
Cleopatra, she knows it will be the find of her career. Its author
tells the story of a priceless tarot deck, now lost to history, but as
Semele delves further she realizes the manuscript is more than it
seems. Both a memoir and a prophecy, it appears to be the work
of a powerful seer, describing devastating wars and natural
disasters in detail thousands of years before they occurred.

The more she reads, the more the manuscript begins to affect
Semele’s life. But what happened to the cards? As the mystery
of her connection to the manuscript deepens, Semele can’t
shake the feeling that she’s being followed. Only one person
can help her make sense of it all: her client, Theo Brossard.
Yet Theo is arrogant and elusive, concealing secrets of his
own, and there’s more to Semele’s desire to speak with him
than she would like to admit. Can Semele even trust him?

The auction date is swiftly approaching, and someone wants to
interfere—someone who knows the cards exist, and that the
Brossard manuscript is tied to her. Semele realizes it’s up to her
to stop them: the manuscript holds the key to a two-thousand-year-old
secret, a secret someone will do anything to possess.

  1. I like the notion of ancient texts and Tarot cards…there is something inherently and quietly frightening about understated things like precognition and prophecies.
