Spolit, feckless Temple Drake, the daughter of a judge, runs away from school with an unsuitable man. Abandoned by him with a gang of moonshiners, Temple falls into the clutches of the psychotic Popeye, one of the most grotesque characters of Faulkner's imagination. A compelling, shocking tale of perverted justice in the Deep South, "Sanctuary" is also a moving plea for courage in the darkest of circumstances.

Story 2 is Daniel's son Caine and Diana Blade [Justin's sister]. I had trouble liking Diana. I have to remember when someone is, in a sense brainwashed to believe the sky is a different color, it is hard for them to realize the lies they were fed regarding her brother were just that, lies. The struggle goes on and on forever. She has been forced to put away her heritage, her beliefs and her true personality, and to become a creature of her relatives making. It was hard to struggle through that and for her to grow up and not be afraid of her shadow and to thaw out the icy wall of control she lives behind.
Khoury's story line is interesting and his flashbacks to ancient times are the best part of his books, so far. His writing in this novel is very uneven. At times it borders on amateurish. Some of his word choics simply do not fit, but by far the most annoying aspect of his writing is the super long run on sentences lasting up to thirteen lines long of print. Who edited this book? Wake up editor! One has already forgotten the meaning by the time he gets to the end of the sentence. He buries the point being made at the end, at which time one has to reread the sentence.
Mr. Khoury, please take this as an encouragement to tighten up your writing. You have good stories and meaningful content. The latter does much to redeem your novels.
