THE SANCTUARY is the gripping story of vigilante priest, Danny Hansen, who is now serving a fifty year prison term in California for the murder of two abusive men. Filled with remorse, Danny is determined to live out his days by a code of non-violence and maneuvers deftly within a ruthless prison system. 


But when Renee Gilmore, the woman he loves, receives a box containing a bloody finger and draconian demands from a mysterious enemy on the outside, Danny must find a way to escape.


They are both drawn into a terrifying game of life and death. If Renee fails, the priest will die; if Danny fails, Renee will die. And the body count will not stop at two.


THE SANCTUARY is Ted Dekker at his best, a powerful thriller that relentlessly plumbs the depths of punishment and rehabilitation, both in a flawed corrections system and in the human heart.

Ted Dekker (English Ted Dekker ) American writer. Born October 24, 1962. He has written over twenty novels and is considered one of the best-selling authors in The New York Times. He is famous for books that can be described as intense thrillers with unexpected plot twists and unforgettable characters. He also earned a good reputation among fantasy fans. At the beginning of his writing career, Dekker created several so-called religious thrillers, which were classified as "Christian fiction", however obscure and extensive this concept may be. It is worth noting that in his later works - both "mainstream" novels and fantastic thrillers - the author attempts to clarify faith through metaphor. The most famous books of this genre are novels from the cycle "Circle" and "Paradise". Dekker was born into a family of missionaries who lived among the Indonesian headhunter tribes. Such a specific work of parents, which implied frequent absences and trips that separated them from home and children, determined what Dekker himself calls his early childhood life in an alien and alien environment and culture, where he felt like a stranger. He experienced both the fascination of this life and loneliness. It was this unique upbringing that became the reason that, relying only on his own imagination, he created his own worlds in which he would like to be. After leaving Indonesia, Dekker moved to the United States permanently. He graduated from high school, studied philosophy and religion at the university. After receiving his bachelor`s degree, he found a banal office job and began to move up the career ladder. However, not allowing himself to stop, he quickly changed his corporate path to the life of a private entrepreneur and tried to realize himself in such different spheres as buying and selling companies, healthcare services, marketing. In the early 90s, while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker suddenly remembered his long-cherished dream of becoming a writer. Within only two years, he wrote two full-length novels, and then completely rewrote and supplemented them. Only now, having plunged headlong into the process of creating books and the stories themselves, he realized that the desire to tell was always in his blood, and the pleasure of writing is many times greater than the joy of success in business. Ted was seized by a new obsession: explaining truth through storytelling. Ultimately, Dekker sold his business, moved with his family to the mountains of Western Colorado, and devoted all of his time to writing a third novel. Two years and three novels later, his first book, Heaven`s Wager, was published. Eight years after the first publication, Dekker`s novels have already sold over 3.4 million copies. And his two books "Thr3e" and "House" were filmed. Dekker currently resides in Austin, Texas with his wife Lee Ann and two daughters. Official site - http://www.teddekker.com/ Bibliography (English) - http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/d/ted-dekker/
