Baghdad, 2003. An army unit on a routine mission makes a horrifying discovery: a state-of-the-art, concealed lab where dozens � men, women, children � have died, the subjects of gruesome experiments. The mysterious scientist they were after, a man believed to be working on a bioweapon and known only as the hakeem � the doctor � escapes, taking with him the startling truth about his work. A puzzling clue is left behind: a circular symbol of a snake feeding on its own tail.
As the power of the symbol comes to light, revealing the centuries of destruction left in its wake, one unsuspecting woman stands at the center of a conspiracy that could change the world forever.
In the masterful hands of international bestseller Raymond Khoury, The Sanctuary delivers the same rapid-fire suspense and provocative scholarship that made The Last Templar a coast-to-coast blockbuster.

Kept my interest!
While I enjoyed the author's last work, The Last Templar, I wasn't wild about it. The Sanctuary though, was one of those books that I just couldn't put down! Lots of action--all believable, and lots of interesting historical facts sprinkled throughout. My only complaint was the extremely poor editing job done throughout the reading. Many times there were noises indicating where the reading had been edited. In a few places a phrase was repeated twice--the original take was not fully removed in the editing. Indeed, in one place, the recording jumped to the end of the book every time I I tried to play it from that point. I had to skip over a few minutes of recording in order to continue with the story. In all of the hundreds of Audible recordings I've listened to over the years, this is the ONLY one where I've encountered a bad editing job.
