"What would you get if you crossed Big Little Lies with 90s teen flick The Craft?...The answer is something like this addictive novel." —The Independent

Sanctuary is the perfect hide a secret.

When young Daniel Whitman is killed at a high-school party, the community is ripped apart. The death of Sanctuary's star quarterback seems to be a tragic accident, but everyone knows his ex-girlfriend Harper Fenn is the daughter of a witch—and she was there when he died.

Was Daniel's death an accident, revenge, or something even more sinister?

As accusations fly, paranoia grips the town...and the town becomes no sanctuary at all.

Twisty and compelling with a dash of Practical Magic, V.V. James's debut Sanctuary is a riveting tale of murder, witchcraft, and the dark side of small towns and the secrets kept within them.
