About the book

'Imaginative and intriguing. The Sanctuary sucks you in and doesn't let you leave until the very last page - and a final revelation that left me thinking late into the night. Andrew Hunter Murray is a young writer to watch.' Anthony Horowitz

'Gripping, unsettling and original. Andrew Hunter Murray is a fabulous storyteller.' Tim Harford

_____________________________

In a disintegrating and increasingly lawless land, a young man is travelling north.

Ben is a young painter from the crowded, turbulent city. For six months his fiance Cara has been living on the remote island of Sanctuary Rock, the property of millionaire philanthropist Sir John Pemberley. Now she has decided to break off their engagement and stay there for good.

Ben resolves to travel to the island to win Cara back. But the journey there is a harsh and challenging one, and when he does arrive, a terrible shock awaits him.

As Ben begins to find his way around Pemberley's perfect island, he knows he must also discover - what has made Cara so determined to throw her old life away? And is Sanctuary Rock truly a second Eden, as the mysterious Sir John claims - or a prospect of hell?

By the Sunday Times-bestselling author of The Last Day, this high-concept thriller will provoke and grip you from the very first page.
