ENDORSEMENTS FOR THE SACRIFICE
“Peg Brantley’s latest, THE SACRIFICE, accomplishes that rare feat of being both heartfelt and suspenseful. A gripping tale of murder and revenge, it ultimately becomes something much, much more.
— Dennis Palumbo, author of the Daniel Rinaldi mystery series
“Peg Brantley has done it again. Her third book (after THE MISSINGS and RED TIDE) is another thrill ride, a hyperventilation-inducing thriller about evil and power and endangered innocence. And MAYBE a new (and very interesting) sustaining female character. Mex Anderson may have companionship in the next book or two.”
—Timothy Hallinan, Edgar-nominated author of the Poke Rafferty and Junior Bender series
