Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

Sancti Trilogy book 3, a wonderful series of books set in an imagined city which can be visited with total enjoyment even if you haven’t read the first two … but you will, once you’ve read this. Those in the know have to cope with sadness of this series finishing. As with Dan Brown, you have history, science and the occult mixed together. Just enjoy.

If you like Simon Toyne you might also like to read books by James Rollins, Eric Van Lustbader and Steve Berry.

The Tower by Simon Toyne

The much anticipated final instalment in the bestselling conspiracy thriller trilogy by Simon Toyne, author of SANCTUS: 'Plenty of action, plenty of intrigue and wonderfully imaginative. The sort of novel to devour in one sitting' Kate Mosse. For all fans of Dan Brown. AFTER THE RISE, COMES THE FALL. The forbidden Citadel at the heart of the ancient Turkish city of Ruin opens its gates for the first time in history. Why now, after centuries of secrecy? A deadly disease has erupted within, and threatens to spread beyond its walls. Infected charity worker Gabriel Mann may hold the cure - but can one dying man stop an epidemic? Without him, former journalist Liv Adamsen is vulnerable, surrounded by strangers in the desert oasis that is her new home. Liv, however, has far bigger concerns than just her own life...In the USA, newly qualified FBI Agent Joe Shepherd investigates the disappearance of NASA's most senior professor. Is it a vanishing act, an abduction, or something darker? Shepherd's investigation approaches a powerful conspiracy with global reach, and profound consequences. For them all, this much is clear: something big is coming. Something that will change everything. But will it be a new beginning or the End of Days?


Praise for SANCTUS and THE KEY:

'Among the best current thrillers'

'A cool, confident debut ... with pace, grace and a keen eye for cinematic effect'

'Intriguing and engaging ... Relentless pace. An exciting and interesting read. I look forward to returning to Ruin, where there are plenty of stories waiting to be told'

'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'

'A fast moving, thoroughly enjoyable, adventure - plenty of action, plenty of intrigue and a wonderfully imaginative reinterpretation of a slice of religious history. The sort of novel to devour in one sitting'
