“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.
