Excellent thriller, August 20, 2013 By ChristophFischerBooks "Chris" This review is from: Dark Sanctuary (Kindle Edition)
"Dark Sanctuary" by Malla Duncan is a dark and moody thriller set in the equally dark and moody Yorkshire Moors.
It begins with the short description of a young girl mixing with the wrong crowd in a bar and ending up in said Moors. Then we
meet Suzahne Holte, the heroine of the book, who by accident gets involved in the search for what might be a serial killer and
someone known to Suzahne herself.
The book is full of subtle threat and scary moments, quite frequently aided by the fact that an attacker or enemy is not seen or known,
giving it an eerie feel. There is a mysterious man in the woods, many suspicious characters and a link to South Africa where
Suzahne's father was killed under also mysterious circumstances.
As you can see there is a lot of plot in this well written novel, cleverly constructed story lines and even some romantic prospects.
The story is nicely trimmed and moves very fast.
This is an excellent psychological thriller that reminded me in places of Hitchcock and Stephen King. The book kept me guessing
and turning the pages and I recommend it to anybody looking for anew talent in the genre.

A spine tingling thriller, Dark Sanctuary transports the reader to the Yorkshire moors where Suzahne Holte, a representative for a
foxy little company selling animal supplies finds more than she bargained for during her day’s round of farm customers. After three days
of rain, a fallen tree branch across the muddied track forces Suzahna from her car. She returns to find her car keys gone. And, so begins
a chilling tale. A fast paced intriguing mystery, its twists and turns keep the reader turning the page to find yet another unnerving surprise!
Characters are strong and real. You will feel the dampness in your bones as dusk descends upon the moors, and fright as
Suzahne looks through her rain splattered car window to see “a face”. Who is it? Mmm. Another reason to read on.
An excellent psychological thriller that will keep you guessing till the end.
