Publisher's Summary

The much anticipated final instalment in the apocalyptic trilogy by Simon Toyne, best-selling author of Sanctus.
A cyber-attack on NASA’s deep space search for the origins of the universe destroys the program and delivers a grave warning: Mankind Must Look No Further. Rookie FBI Agent Joseph Shepherd has the unique skills needed to investigate the breach. But he’s also hiding a secret of his own.…
Former New York crime reporter Liv Adamsen’s life has led her from the Turkish city of Ruin to an abandoned oil field in the Syrian Desert. An oasis grows around her new home but the desert is a hostile place, and danger draws ever closer.
Charity worker Gabriel Mann abandoned Liv to protect her from the disease that is killing him. But this terrible plague, born in Ruin’s ancient Citadel, has already started to spread.
Across the globe, strange weather phenomena and mass migrations are a sign that some great event is upon us. Revelation is coming: But will it be a new beginning or the End of Days?


What the Critics Say

Praise for Sanctus: "A cool, confident debut…with pace, grace, and a keen eye for cinematic effect." (Daily Telegraph)
"Intriguing and engaging…relentless pace. An exciting and interesting read. I look forward to returning to Ruin, where there are plenty of stories waiting to be told." (The Sun)
"High-concept, debut conspiracy thrillers don’t come with higher expectations than this. Hard to think of it as a debut, better to think of it as the beginning of a massive new adventure, and a so-long to Dan Brown." (Mirror)

I have really enjoyed listening to all three books, I found the story imaginative, different, well written. The narrator is superb and I shall be looking for other books read by Mr Keeble. I am sorry that it has come to an end and will definitely listen to it again. Thank you To Mr Toyne and Mr Kebble..

So good I went looking for more....

This is a fitting climax to the trilogy. I listened to the very last part on a long 4 hour car journey late at night arriving with 30 minutes still left. Just had to listen to the end before finally turning the lights out! Jonathan Keeble is absolutely amazing. We now search for him as narrator as much as by author (which is how we found Simon Toyne). Was so disappointed that there isn't anything else by Simon Toyne yet.
