Publisher Comments:

“If a thriller has to be one thing its thrilling, and Simon Toynes 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) Toynes 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.

Synopsis:

In the oldest inhabited place on earth, atop a mountain known as the Citadel, a Vatican-like city-state towers above the city of Ruin in modern-day Turkey. Now, thanks to media coverage of a climber's assent, the eyes of the whole world are on a group that has prized its secrets above all things. For the Sancti—the monks living inside the Citadel—this could mean the end of everything they have built and protected for millennia . . . and they will stop at nothing to keep what is theirs.

For American reporter Liv Adamsen, driven by the memory of a tragic loss, an earth-shaking discovery awaits that will change everything . . .

About the Author

Simon Toyne has worked in British television for twenty years. He was the writer, director, and producer on several award-winning shows, one of which won a BAFTA. He lives in England with his wife and family. The Tower is the stunning conclusion to the Ruin trilogy.

I rarely ever read action/thriller books, but once I picked up this book, I couldn't put it down. It's well written, intricately plotted, and quick paced. The mystery surrounding the pre-Christian religious sect's secret unfolds chapter by chapter until finally revealed in the exciting climax in the last pages. Although it's the first book of a trilogy, the conclusion wraps it up nicely. I think it's far better than others in its genre. Read it now, and you'll see.
