From the author whose literary debut,The River Sorrow,was hailed byThe New York Timesas "a haunting, highly original thriller [with] one powerful surprise after another" comes a riveting new novel that could have come from today's headlines--at once a heart-pounding, chillingly realistic thriller and a dark, complex plunge into the human psyche. Rarely has a first novel received the kind of extraordinary critical acclaim garnered byThe River Sorrow,Craig Holden's spellbinding tale of an innocent man accused of murder, caught in a nightmare of terror and survival. WithThe Last Sanctuary,Holden dazzles us once again with a mesmerizing thriller that introduces another good, ordinary man turned fugitive--this time a Gulf War veteran living on the edge of society, falsely accused of murder and plunged into America's dark underworld of armed militias and terrorist cults, running from the cops, federal agents--and from his own tortured soul. The cat and mouse chase across North America's last wilderness--the soaring mountains and glacier-strewn shores of Alaska--is brilliantly cinematic.  The complex relationship between the fugitive, Joe Curtis, and his nemesis, a female Native American ATF agent, is superbly rendered and utterly unpredictable.  And the novel, at once nerve-shattering and beautifully written, is as topical as Waco and Oklahoma City--and as universal as our own worst nightmares.
