Publisher Comments:

John Connolly, author of the internationally bestselling novels featuring detective Charlie Parker, offers his first stand-alone thriller, set on an island off the coast of Maine that harbors a violent and bloody past.

In 1693, the settlers on the small Maine island of Sanctuary were betrayed to their enemies and slaughtered. Since then, the island has known 300 years of peace.Until now.

     Four men are descending on Sanctuary, their purpose—to hunt down and kill the wife of their leader and retrieve the money that she stole from him. All that stands in their way are a young rookie officer, Sharon Macy, and the island’s strange, troubled policeman, the giant known as Melancholy Joe Dupree.

     But Joe Dupree is no ordinary policeman. He is the guardian of the island’s secrets, the repository of its memories.  He knows that Sanctuary has been steeped in blood once and that it will never again tolerate the shedding of innocent blood.  Now a band of killers is set to desecrate Sanctuary and unleash the fury of its ghosts upon themselves and all who stand by them.On Sanctuary, no one is safe from the past...
