Sanctuary is a light-hearted novel about Global Warming, worldwide overpopulation and the inexorable consequences of outlandish wealth inequality. An underground cave is discovered in The Bob Marshall Wilderness area during the Cold War. A bunch of billionaires set out to create the most luxurious bomb shelter ever built, far from the madding crowd and miles away from prying eyes. Their vision is not shared by the bulk of their peers who prefer to fritter away their wealth on fast cars and loose living. During the ensuing fifty years the Cold War dies a natural death, to be replaced by the existential threat of Climate Change. The opulent hole in the ground morphs into a Sanctuary for rich folks who wish to preserve their personal prosperity and at the same time to circumvent the demise of the species. When a category 5 hurricane deluges Miami Beach even the most devoted climate deniers have a come to Jesus moment.
