Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A cross between Indiana Jones and Dan Brown, an electrifying thriller of ancient secrets, of the quest for an extended life and of horrific scientific experiments. It mixes history with the present in a gripping tale of adventure and suspense. Well worth buckling your seat belt for and heading straight into a hell of a ride.

Synopsis

The Sanctuary by Raymond Khoury

Naples, 1750. In the dead of the night, three men with swords burst into the palazzo of a marquis. The intruders' leader, the Prince of San Severo, accuses the marquis of being an imposter, and demands to know a secret that he believes the man harbours. In the fight that ensues, the false marquis escapes over the rooftops, leaving behind a burning palazzo and a raging prince who is now obsessed with finding his quarry at any cost.

Baghdad, 2003. An American army unit hunting down Saddam's inner circle makes a horrifying discovery: a state-of-the-art, concealed lab where dozens - men, woman, children - have died after enduring gruesome experiments. The mysterious scientist they were after, a man believed to be working on a bioweapons program and known only as the hakeem - the doctor - escapes, taking with him the startling truth about his work. A puzzling clue is left behind, crudely carved into the wall of one of the underground prison's cells: a circular symbol of a snake feeding on its own tail.

So begins Raymond Khoury's explosive new novel, placing two bold women at the centre of the action as they get caught up in a murderous trail of ancient clues. Ripped from the history books and coupled with cutting-edge science, SANCTUARY delivers even more of the brilliant mystery and rapid-fire suspense that made Khoury's debut novel, THE LAST TEMPLAR, a Sunday Times, New York Times and #1 international bestseller.
