Description

"If a thriller has to be one thing it's thrilling, and Simon Toyne's Sanctus is thrilling with bells on....A roller coaster ride through a dark world of conspiracy and betrayal."
--Paul Christopher, author of The Templar Conspiracy

If you are a fan of top-notch conspiracy fiction that keeps you up late nights turning pages--if the bestselling novels of Steve Berry, James Rollins, Dan Brown, Raymond Khoury, and Chris Kuzneski make your heart race faster--then remember the name Simon Toyne! Already a smash instant bestseller in the United Kingdom ("Intriguing and engaging...[with a] relentless pace" The Sun) Toyne's Sanctus is, quite simply, one of the most extraordinary conspiracy thriller debuts in many years. In this electrifying, nonstop adventure, a young newspaper reporter, driven by the memory of her lost brother, uncovers a dark secret nurtured for 3,000 years by blood and lies by adherents of an ancient, unknown religion in a Vatican-like citadel hidden away for millennia from unwelcomed prying eyes.

Back cover copy

A man climbs to the summit of the oldest inhabited place on earth, a mountain called the Citadel, a Vatican-like state that towers above the city of Ruin in Turkey. But this is no ordinary ascent. It is a symbolic act--and one that is witnessed by the world.

Few understand its consequence. But for Kathryn Mann, it's evidence that a revolution is coming. For the Sancti, the secretive monks who live inside the Citadel, it could mean the end of everything they have built. They will stop at nothing to keep what is theirs--even kill if they have to. For reporter Liv Adamsen, it spurs the memory of the brother she lost, setting her on a journey across the world and into the heart of her own identity.

There, she will make a discovery so shocking it will change everything . . .

"Hard to think of it as a debut, better to think of it as the beginning of a massive new adventure, and a so-long to Dan Brown. . . ."--The Daily Mirror (UK)
