Mark Twain wrote: We despise all reverences and all the objects of reverence which are outside the pale of our own list of sacred things. And yet, with strange inconsistency, we are shocked when other people despise and defile the things which are holy to us.


Book Review

The Sacrifice
by Peg Brantley

Series:
#1 in Mex Anderson

Category:  Thriller

Average Rating:  4.0

Former lawman Mex Anderson is trying to cope with the horrific murders of his family as best he can. Moving from his small, Mexican town to the snowy mountains of Colorado has helped, however it seems nothing can ever take away the gut-wrenching pain of his loss. When the head of the drug cartel responsible for the killings approaches him with an offer that would reveal the individuals behind the murders, it might lead to the one thing that would allow Mex to heal: revenge.

Brantley tends to gloss over some rather important details in her stories and that's true in this story. On the other hand, she dwells a bit too long on some things such as Mex's depression. Overall, this is an engaging, suspenseful story and I like Mex.

Nick J. Russo performs well and is a good choice as Mex. He attempts to give distinctive voices to the characters and succeeds most of the time.

NOTE: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
