THE NEW AWARD-WINNING INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER BY THE AUTHOR OF THE MOUNTAIN

"Can be compared (with no fear of hyperbole) to Stephen King and Jo Nesbo" - Massimo Vincenz, La Repubblica.

"D'Andrea piles on the action and the atmosphere with the panache of a seasoned writer" Marcel Berlins, The Times.

Marlene Wegener is on the run.

She has stolen something from her husband, something priceless, irreplaceable.

But she doesn't get very far. When her car veers off a bleak midwinter road she takes refuge in the remote home of Simon Keller, a tough mountain man who lives alone with his demons. Here in her high mountain sanctuary, she begins to rekindle a sense of herself: tough, capable, no longer the trophy on a gangster's arm.

But Herr Wegener does not know how to forgive, and in his rage he makes a pact with the devil.

The Trusted Man. He cannot be called off, he cannot be reasoned with and one way or another he will get the job done.

Unless, of course, he's beaten to it . . .



Translated from the Italian by Howard Curtis and Katherine Gregor

MEDIA REVIEWS
Full of folklore and history as well as descriptions of astonishing hardship, Sanctuary is also a study of character and what happens to people's minds when they have to find a way to make sense of intolerable circumstances . . . -- Natasha Cooper * Literary Review. *
With his first book, he was compared to Stephen King and the David Lynch of Twin Peaks. Here, D'Andrea will go even further into the depths of evil -- Alessia Rastelli * Corriere della Serra. *
A clever, twisty and chilling page-turner. * Choice Magazine. *
This immensely enjoyable chiller/thiller is a superb follow up to last year's bestseller, The Mountain. This novel demonstrates that D'Andrea has no problem at all with 'second album syndrome', Sanctuary is a brilliant piece of storytelling. * New Books Magazine. *
D'Andrea's a name to add to your Eurocrime list. -- David Hewson, author of the Nic Costa novels and The Killing
D'Andrea is a real master. -- Sergio Pent * La Stampa. *
Pulsatingly exciting and astonishingly grisly in equal measure. * Irish Independent. *

“A porcine puzzler...”

I read this some time ago, and to be honest I’m still not entirely sure what to make of it. It’s a very strange story, somewhat reliant on coincidence, but there is something I can’t quite put my finger on that made... More
