Maybe just me and I will definitely try the next Emma Haughton thriller but I long for a big meal of an audiobook like ............ an Anthony Horrowitz Magpie Murders or The Word is Murder, one in the Robert Galbreith Strike series, - the fabulous Hot Water by Cristopher Fowler, Heat Wave by Kate Riorden, The Harbinda Kaur Series by Ellie Griffiths, a well narrated Ruth Ware, The You series by Caroline Kepnes, the recent thrillers by Lisa Jewell, any of the amazing new thrillers by Louise Candlish like The Other Passenger/Sudden Departure of the Frasers/Those People, Tammy Cohen's recent work, The French Girl/How to Kill your Best friend by Lexie Elliot, The Other Couple/Tattletale/The Festival by Sarah J Naughton, Shiver by Allie Reynolds, Breathless by Amy McCulloch, Dirty Little Secrets By Jo Spain, The Cove by Alice Clark Platts, Cara Hunter's excellent series, Jane Casey's Kat Kinsella Series, Liane Moriarty's Apples Never Fall and many other, Rebound?Exposure by Aga Lesiewicz, Something in the Water, The Family Game and The Disappearing Act by Caroline Steadman, Confidence and Conviction and Her Perfect Life by Sam Hepburn .......... these are all thrillers I was truly excited and involved 100% and of course there are many more who have a big place in my heart and who I would re-read chapters of rather than skip or skim. The book of Hebrews was written to draw people’s eyes away from the earthly services of the sanctuary and focus us upon Christ, the Heavenly High Priest, Who, with His own blood, shed in that ONCE AND FOR ALL sacrifice, entered into the heavenly sanctuary not made with human hands. There He is our constant Priest, making atonement for us, just as in the type, the earthly priest, after the sacrifice of the atonement was made, “administered an atonement for the person”. (Lev.4:20,26,31) I think my main issue was that I didn't really care about any of the main characters. I found most of them to be unlikeable throughout the book and I wasn't really bothered how it was going to turn out. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (of the Lord) shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” The Sanctuary is a mystery set in a pre natal luxury retreat with each pregnant guest full of secrets and turmoil. If I found the idea of spending my last trimester far from an en suite bathroom odd, I didn't let that get in the way of a perfectly good thriller!


Desperate to make her retreat work, she is not who she purports to be, but one of her guests knows who she is. And she's not going to let it go.

Yet the Bible calls the 7th Day Sabbath a sign between God and His people throughout the generations; that we may know that God is the LORD that does sanctify us. (Ex. 31:31, Ezekiel 20:12) Avicenna aka Ibn Sina - the most influencial physician of his time; an accomplished philosopher ad poet by the age of eighteen Naarmate ze meer tijd doorbrengt met andere bewoners, begint ze eerlijker te worden over waarvoor ze op de vlucht is. Tot ze zich realiseert dat niet iedereen in The Sanctuary het beste met haar voor heeft en dat iemand misschien wel een moordenaar is. A lot of people tend to forget the Mr Khoury spent a good number of years as a sucessful screenwriter before turning to novels. This novel shows that past profession well. A lot of the scenes in the novel lend easy to the imagination or allowing the mind to easily see it on the big screen. Als je van een langzaam en toch wat mysterieus verhaal houdt, is dit zeker een aanrader. Voor mij persoonlijk was het toch net iets te sloom opgebouwd.

Priests are the dispensers of the divine graces …’they are’, says ST. Prosper, ‘the glory … of the church, they are the doors of the eternal city; through them all reach Christ … the Lord has confided (to them) the keys of the kingdom of heaven’. … Were the Redeemer to sit in a confessional to administer the sacrament of penance, and a priest to sit in another confessional … the penitents of each would be equally absolved.” p. 28 The priest holds the place of the Savior himself, when he absolves from sin. P.34 St. Clement. Then, had reason to say that the priest is, as it were, a god on earth …” p.36. So did they take away Christ’s daily ministry in the heavenly sanctuary? Not in reality, no, for no human being can actually reach into heaven and pull Christ from His work. However, in the minds and hearts of the people they did take away Christ’s heavenly priestly ministry. They did exactly that! This was an enjoyable read. I will say the twisty bits were a bit unbelievable, but the book was very entertaining and enjoyable.

There were some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and they were some of the high parts of the book. Ultimately though, by the time it had got to the big reveal at the end, I thought that I found it predictable and I didn’t get that lovely satisfaction I get when you find out what’s been going on. This one was heavy on the chases and light on the information and intellectual puzzles and reason why the information was SO important that people had to die for it.

Baghdad, 2003. Hunting for a mysterious bioweapon scientist, an army unit discovers a concealed state-of-the-art lab where gruesome experiments have been carried out on men, women, and children. The scientist escapes, but a puzzling clue is left behind: a circular symbol of a snake feeding on its own tail. I was hooked, it is told from 5 points of view, and you always get the sense that something isn't quite right but it's hard to put a finger on just what.The plot - not the most original... but at least it was not was all reasonably straightforward with little in the way of twists and turns. Emma wakes in in a treatment centre and has no memory of how she got there. The staff are able to give her some answers and slowly she starts to remember snippets from some of the previous night. On a positive note, the ending to the book was good and it did come together well in the end but getting there was just a bit of a slog. Yet already in Daniel 9 we see the counterfeit prince. The Roman prince which Israel chose instead of Messiah the Prince. The book started off strongly and I thought I was going to devour the entire thing. The pacing at the beginning was great and the story caught my attention immediately, however, I don’t think the author was able to maintain this. It’s because of this that I started to feel a bit disinterested and I got to the point where I was reading to finish the book as opposed to reading to find out what was going to happen in the story.
