Trisha Baldazar, new mother and wife of a Texas state
senator, thinks nothing of the nurse who comes to her room
to take her daughter April back to the newborn nursery --
until the baby goes missing. How could someone have gotten
April past the door alarms, and why does the surveillance
tape not show the abduction? Was it an inside job? These
are questions the FBI wants answers to as it takes on the
crucial job of locating the baby.
Even though they expect a ransom demand, FBI agents John
Ransom and Kathy Devereaux still leave no stone unturned in
their pursuit of April and her kidnapper(s). It soon
becomes apparent that there are other factions and even
more sinister elements at work in the abduction. When an
informant tells Ransom that a local satanic cult is getting
ready to stage a human sacrifice ceremony with an infant,
time is of the essence to save the child. And everyone is
shocked at the outcome.
Former FBI agent Mark Bouton has written a
compelling and fast-paced thriller. With realistic
characters and tightly woven plot development, THE
SACRIFICE is a page-turner that will keep readers entranced
until the explosive ending. Another great book from this
