Chad Bishop’s Sanctuary of Lies is a thriller with a mesmerizing plot and characters that readers will stick with. It starts with the auction of a particularly dangerous device, and with a crime. But what caught my attention, the hook, was the first line in the second chapter: “Looking at your future wife in the bed and getting a text message from your dead ex-wife has all the makings of a bad day.” Isabelle Nunez is the owner of a Brooklyn computer shop and she lives with her lover, Jacob Costa. Jacob has already accepted the fact that his fiancée can never conceive, so they are well settled with the pit bull that they treat as a child. But all this is about to change when, days after being reported dead, Jacob’s ex-wife sends an email asking him to go save their child. He never knew he had any with her, and so begins the emotional and thrilling ride of the year for readers…
Chad Bishop is good at creating cliff-hangers and crafting chapters that readers can’t leave mid-way. The writing is fluid, with short, succinct sentences that hit the mind powerfully and images that readers can’t ignore. The conflict starts from the very beginning and the reader immediately gets the feeling that the author is an expert in engineering suspenseful moments in the plot and scenes that keep readers utterly engaged. In Sanctuary of Lies, there is a surprising blend of humor and suspense, which makes the read a really enjoyable one. The paragraph breaks are timely and they are accomplished to create great dramatic effect. Fans of thrillers shouldn’t miss this one!
