An explosive apocalyptic conspiracy thriller from a major new British talent that will set the world alight…REVELATION OR DEVASTATION? The certainties of the modern world are about to be blown apart by a three thousand year-old conspiracy nurtured by blood and lies …A man throws himself to his death from the oldest inhabited place on the face of the earth, a mountainous citadel in the historic Turkish city of Ruin. This is no ordinary suicide but a symbolic act. And thanks to the media, it is witnessed by the entire world.
But few understand it. For charity worker Kathryn Mann and a handful of others in the know, it is what they have been waiting for. The cowled and secretive fanatics that live in the Citadel suspect it could mean the end of everything they have built – and they will kill, torture and break every law to stop that. For Liv Adamsen, New York crime reporter, it begins the next stage of a journey into the heart of her own identity.
And at that journey's end lies a discovery that will change EVERYTHING...Sanctus is an apocalyptic conspiracy thriller like no other – it re-sets the bar for excitement and fascination, and marks the debut of a major talent in Simon Toyne.

So Much Better than the DaVinci Code!
Fast-paced mystery of a protected ancient secret
While the story was captivating, fast-paced and totally perfect for listening, I've become a huge Jonathan Keeble fan. The narrator really does make all the difference. Not too fast, not too slow, good voice and accent, superb voices for characters and he changes pace and energy in his voice when the sections of the book demand.
It definitely did. Each chapter flips to a different scene, picking up various characters and lines of the story. The chapters are sufficiently short that you don't forget what has come before and this also adds to the increase in pace of the story. They all come together later in the book and they keep you wondering, 'What is going to happen to them?" until the next time the thread is picked up again.
I also felt that we were given good background information on many of the characters - they are strong and fleshy and credible.
I really didn't expect the sacrament to be what it turned out to be. Very unexpected. Great twist.
I enjoyed the descriptions of the citadel - the rooms, corridors, the library and the lighting... The opening scene really did it for me and had me completely lured into the book within minutes.
Probably when the old guy died to protect his daughter and grandson. And the revelation of the sacrament.
I'm searching Audible now for more books narrated by Jonathan Keeble and more book by Simon Toyne. I enjoyed this one that much!
