Here’s a mystery almost all of us can dig our teeth into, especially those born and bred in Small Southern Town, USA. As those good-ol’-boys like to say, things get curiouser and curiouser, so pull up a chair and settle back for the type of old-fashioned whodunit.

Jedwin Smith, acclaimed author of Fatal Treasure and Our Brother’s Keeper

An excellent mystery novel! Anyone who enjoys reading suspense novels, in particular ones that take place in the South, will find Sanctuary an extremely good read.

Lee Gimenez, best-selling author of 13 novels, including FBI Code Red, a J. T. Ryan Thriller

It was difficult to say goodbye to the colorful cast of characters who reside in the tight-knit, small town of Shiloh. Luckily this is the first book of what will hopefully be a long series.

About the Author

T. M. BROWN, Mike to family and friends, and his wife of over forty-five years, Connie, live near Newnan, GA. In 2014, Connie encouraged him to retire and write memorable stories as a legacy for their five grandchildren. Hence the quaint South Georgia town of Shiloh came into being with colorful and often quirky characters populating the idyllic, rural community. As he learned during his decades of travel throughout the South, even wholesome small towns are not free of conflict and scandal.
