Waterstones Says

James takes the zest and vigour of Young Adult literature, sprinkles a dash of supernatural charm into the mix and then tops it all off with the odd allusion to The Crucible. Sanctuary is near impossible to categorise but a breathless, thrilling rollercoaster to read; witches and murder in small town America with a blackly comic spirit.     

Sanctuary. It's the perfect town. . . to hide a secret.

To Detective Maggie Knight, the death of Sanctuary's star quarterback seems to be a tragic accident.

Then the rumours start.

Everyone knows his ex-girlfriend is the daughter of a witch - and she was there when he died.

Bereaved mother Abigail will stop at nothing until she has justice for her dead son. Her best friend Sarah will do everything in her power to protect her accused daughter. And the women share a secret that could shatter their lives.

As accusations fly, it falls to Maggie to find out the truth before her investigation spirals out of control.

And the town becomes no sanctuary at all.
