Excerpt Tour: Sanctuary of Lies by Chad Bishop

Sanctuary of Lies
by Chad Bishop


GENRE: Thriller (domestic)



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,  sends Jacob an email to come save their child, he didn’t know they had.



John had been staking out Sanctuary for months. Now when he looked at the people who lived here they all looked alike to him, expendable.  The couple coming on the field reminded him of the first couple he’d buried in the grove.  That couple had been rich.  Both women waved their hands around thinking they could command everyone around them. The dead couple had come to his place saying they needed maintenance. When John told them someone would come she pushed her way into his home and the husband followed.  John had to kill them then. Fortunately, they were visiting and not employees on Sanctuary. That was the challenge of working on Sanctuary, the employees of Safehaven lived in the community.

John walked to the community center and saw a well-toned male at the desk. He was an agent. This guy reminded John of his third kill in the grove.  Another agent had come to the community of Sanctuary. John couldn’t tell if the man at the desk was a government guy or a consultant but he could tell he was in the business.  The agent had a slim body that came from use not from a gym.     

The third guy in the grove had been a freelancer. He explained to John this job was big enough for the both of them. John was a simple man not a sharing man. John knew Simone Johns has created the houdini and it was possible that it was here. He was going to be the owner of that software.


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.
