About this book
An acclaimed word-of-mouth bestseller in hardback, this dark and gripping novel now comes in mass market paperback. The Sanctuary of Redeemers is a desolate place, occupied by young boys brought there against their will to serve the Hanged Redeemer. Only one boy is different - no one can remember his name or who he is, or what the future holds for him. A young adult edition is also published by Puffin this month.
In one of the Sanctuary's vast and twisting maze of corridors stands a boy. He is perhaps fourteen or fifteen years old - he is not sure and neither is anyone else. He has long-forgotten his real name, but now they call him Thomas Cale. He is strange and secretive, witty and charming, violent and profoundly bloody-minded.
