Journalist Liv Adamsen has escaped the highly-secretive Citadel in the ancient city of Ruin and now lies in isolation, staring at hospital walls as blank as her memory. Despite her inability to recall, she feels possessed by an unexplained sensation and plagued by whispers only she can hear: "KuShiKaam," the key.
To others the meaning is clear. For "the Ghost," a mercenary operating in Syria, Live may hold the key to history's most powerful secret. For the monks in the Citadel, her return to Turkey may be their only chance to survival. And for a powerful faction in the Vatican, her very existence threatens the success of a desperate plan.
Hunted from Turkey to New York to the deserts of the Middle East, Liv races to uncover a revelation dating from the creation of man in this electrifying follow-up to the international bestseller Sanctus.
Praise for The Key
"If you like your secrets deeply hidden and your action breakneck, then Toyne's sophomore thriller is just the ticket. . . . As in his debut, Toyne delivers a gripping, intricate story of religious and political intrigue that's sweeping yet somehow intimate and very personal. Wow." —Booklist (starred review)
"Toyne cranks up the drama with the second entry in a conspiracy thriller series. . . . Well-written, fast-paced and delivered with an admirable economy of words, this book offers an edge-of-the-seat story filled with action and adventure, as well as a puzzle that the main characters must somehow put together before the world simply disappears. . . . Reading the initial book in the series first makes this taut thriller much more satisfying." —Kirkus Reviews
