Sanctus by Simon Toyne

Watch the trailers for this book at www.thesancti.com.

An explosive apocalyptic conspiracy thriller from a major new British talent that will set the world alight! REVELATION OR DEVASTATION? The certainties of the modern world are about to be blown apart by a three thousand year-old conspiracy nurtured by blood and lies ! A man throws himself to his death from the oldest inhabited place on the face of the earth, a mountainous citadel in the historic Turkish city of Ruin. This is no ordinary suicide but a symbolic act. And thanks to the media, it is witnessed by the entire world. But few understand it. For charity worker Kathryn Mann and a handful of others in the know, it is what they have been waiting for. The cowled and secretive fanatics that live in the Citadel suspect it could mean the end of everything they have built -- and they will kill, torture and break every law to stop that. For Liv Adamsen, New York crime reporter, it begins the next stage of a journey into the heart of her own identity. And at that journey's end lies a discovery that will change EVERYTHING!

Reviews

'A cool, confident debut ! A talented new writer who instinctively grasps the broad rules of superior action thrillers and adapts them with pace, grace, humour and a keen eye for cinematic effect'
DAILY TELEGRAPH

'In this thriller Toyne creates an intriguing and engaging centrepiece in The Citadel ! Relentless pace ! An exciting and interesting read. I look forward to returning to Ruin, where there are plenty of stories waiting to be told'
THE SUN

'High concept, debut conspiracy thrillers don't come with higher expectations than this. 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'
MIRROR
