Sanctuary is a brilliant thriller and we are honoured that Raymond Khoury has doodled, signed, lined, dated and numbered some exclusive copies for our website. There's no doubt that this book would make an awesome film as it's incredibly well researched and is cutting edge!

Plus it doesn't end there - Raymond Khoury is already famous for his debut book The Last Templar. He's already well known in the UK and the US for his work as a screenwriter and producer on works such as the hit BBC show called Spooks (or MI:5 in the US) and Waking the Dead won an Emmy award!

Naples, 1750. In the dead of the night, three men with swords burst into the palazzo of a marquis. The intruders' leader, the Prince of San Severo, accuses the marquis of being an imposter, and demands to know a secret that he believes the man harbours. In the fight that ensues, the false marquis escapes over the rooftops, leaving behind a burning palazzo and a raging prince who is now obsessed with finding his quarry at any cost. Baghdad, 2003. An American army unit hunting down Saddam's inner circle makes a horrifying discovery: a state-of-the-art, concealed lab where dozens - men, woman, children - have died after enduring gruesome experiments. The mysterious scientist they were after, a man believed to be working on a bioweapons program and known only as the hakeem - the doctor - escapes, taking with him the startling truth about his work. A puzzling clue is left behind, crudely carved into the wall of one of the underground prison's cells: a circular symbol of a snake feeding on its own tail. So begins Raymond Khoury's explosive new novel, placing two bold women at the centre of the action as they get caught up in a murderous trail of ancient clues. Ripped from the history books and coupled with cutting-edge science, THE SANCTUARY delivers even more of the brilliant mystery and rapid-fire suspense that made Khoury's debut novel, THE LAST TEMPLAR, a Sunday Times, New York Times and #1 international bestseller.

'A high octane rollercoaster ride of thrills and spills'

'From a sinister experimental camp in Saddam's Baghdad to every dark corner of the globe, Khoury ensures that the pace never relents.'
