Citadela, sudul Turciei - un munte salbatic, care adaposteste cel mai vechi lacas de cult si cel mai mare mister al omenirii. Calugarii care viermuiesc prin maruntaiele lui fac parte dintr-o secta antica, numita Sanctus, care practica ritualuri de o violenta inimaginabila. Intr-o dimineata, un calugar al ordinului urca in varful muntelui, intinde bratele in forma de cruce si se arunca in gol. Trupul ii este plin de taieturi pana la os, in forma literei Tau. Detectivul Arkadian are o misiune grea: ordinul Sanctus este protectorul textului original al Bibliei. Undeva in maruntaiele muntelui exista o gradina care pare a fi cea a Edenului, dar aici cunoasterea nu inseamna pacat originar, ci putere divina. Cand ziarista Liv patrunde in Citadela, ea e pe cale sa descopere unul dintre cele mai inspaimantatoare secrete ale civilizatiei.
In British author Toyne's stellar first in a projected trilogy, a thriller in the Dan Brown tradition, an ancient sect of monks who live in the Citadel, a church carved out of a mountain near the fictional Turkish city of Ruin, have been protecting a secret, "the Sacrament," since before the Christian era. A monk who knows the secret, Brother Samuel, escapes from the Citadel and throws himself off the mountain in full view of spectators and news crews. Later, American newspaper reporter Liv Adamsen learns that her phone number, carved into a small leather strap, has been found inside Samuel's stomach. The monk turns out to be her brother, whom she hasn't seen in years, so Liv travels to Ruin to try to solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. She and several other groups battle the deadly monks, who will stop at nothing to thwart their efforts to discover the Sacrament's secret. The truly mind-boggling revelation will leave astounded readers eager for the next installment. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
