Title: Sanctuary of Lies
By: Chad Bishop
Genre: Thriller (domestic)
Blurb: There are 4.7 billion searchable sites make up 10% of the web, the other 90% is dedicated to the “Dark web”. Within that environment there is a thriving economy where everything is for sale: Sex, Armies and Code for hire. Well-known companies buy and sell for governments and NGO’s (non-governmental organizations). They appear as a benign legal boutique companies and consultants, but their true purpose is to be the middlemen/cyber lynchpin for these illicit goods and services.
ISABELLA NUNEZ owns a computer firm in Brooklyn with her lover JACOB COSTA. Accepting her infertility, they have a blue nose pit bull called Justice as their “child” and live simple lives as techy nerds. Isabella’s idyllic life is shattered when several days after her lover’s ex-wife, SIMONE JOHNS, reported death, Simone sends Jacob an email to come save their child, he didn’t know they had.
Excerpt: AUCTIONEER: Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to Sanctuary. The first item up for auction is the latest software from Safe Haven, houdini. As you know, whoever controls the skies can effectively hold a country hostage within its own borders. Houdini accomplishes that goal. Planes go through five phases: The tower gets them to the runway, at that time the plane is visible to those directing the plane at the airport. It’s then handed off to the nearest Terminal Radar Approach Control Facilities or “TRACON” for those of you who are familiar with this process and goes into phase two. In phase two, TRACON can’t see the plane. As the name suggests it’s directing the plane via radar screens. Once the plane gets off the ground and is on the flight path it goes into phase three and handed off to center. The receiving TRACON hands it off to receiving Tower and that is the final phase.
Houdini should be used during phase two or phase four for maximum effect. We’ve arranged a demonstration during phase four so you can see Houdini in action. If you will look at the screens located in the front and the back of the room we’ll begin.
Today was Marcus’ birthday and he would kill 416 people before lunch.
Marcus swiped his picture id over the white card reader on the wall. He looked at the picture and smiled at his wide grin and short buzz cut. The day he got this job he’d gone to a barber and asked him for a sharp look. The barber was an ex-marine and he delivered the cut of a “real m
Review by Amber: I am giving this book 4.5 stars. The plot was twisted enough to make several knots and I’m not sure if they all got untangled. You are left hanging in a few areas, maybe there will be a sequel and the rest of it will be cleared up. The characters were very well developed and you felt what the chracters were feeling.
There was action, murder, double crossing, and desperation. Most of the book was about getting the code for the software that can control planes. Another major was the safety of a child that belonged the software engineer.
There were tons of double and triple crossing. Half the time you weren’t sure who was on who’s side. The evil guys arewell developed that you can’t help hating, for they are willing to do anything including abducting a child. Each character had their own agendas and it was every man for themselves. It’s interesting how desperate all the characters are for the code to be able to use the software and failing that, the money that was paid at an action for the software.
If you love plots with a ton of twists, action, and thriller this is a great book for you.

Author Bio and Links: Being a child of divorce, I have experienced both sides of the American Family. I understand there is a loss to the family unit that no longer has a father in it. In the face of that loss, I discovered a woman can rise to the occasion and not replace a man but offer her own strength, moral compass and guidance. In this environment a child can grow up feeling loved, accepted and ultimately successful in life.
Those experiences in my formative years have made me more aware of the women around me and the daily feats of resourcefulness and ingenuity that goes unnoticed and unacknowledged by society. My stories highlight societal issues and the ever-changing challenges women face that I’ve observed during my life.
