SanctusBook - 2011
"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.
