“A talented new writer who instinctively grasps the broad rules of superior action thrillers and adapts them with pace, grace, humor, and a keen eye for cinematic effect.”
—Daily Telegraph (London)
“Toyne’s writing is stellar and downright fun. Get your Dan Brown game face on and step into the temple of Simon Toyne.”
—Madison County Herald
Simon Toyne’s breathtaking international bestseller, Sanctus, had critics everywhere cheering, calling the author the new Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) or Steve Berry (The Jefferson Key), while praising Toyne’s debut thriller as “remarkable,” “thrilling,” “provocative,” “haunting,” and “spectacular.” The adventure continues with The Key, returning readers to the dark world of a sinister religious order older than Christianity and their Vatican-like secret citadel high in the Turkish mountains—as one courageous woman must fulfill an enigmatic prophecy that could determine the ultimate fate of humankind. James Rollins, Raymond Khoury, and Chris Kuzneski fans will not want to miss this one.
In The Tower, the thrilling conclusion to Simon Toyne’s bestselling Sanctus trilogy, an ominous countdown has begun that some believe could be the first sign of an imminent global catastrophe.
Toyne’s latest thriller opens at the NASA Control Center in Maryland where the center’s director has gone missing and all that can be found is a bizarre message on his computer screen. FBI Agent J. J. Shepherd believes some of this might be related to an explosion at the Citadel, a secretive monastery in Ruin, Turkey; the viral outbreak that followed there; and the chilling disappearance of a woman named Liv Adamsen.
As strange events and natural disasters occur around the world, Liv searches for the final secrets of the prophecy, while inside the walls of the Ruin, her lover, Gabriel Mann, infected by the virus, battles to survive. Is this the end of days?
In the tradition of Dan Brown’s The DaVinci Code and Steve Berry’s The Columbus Affair, The Tower will keep you riveted until the very last twist.
