Join Kansas author Mark Bouton on Sunday, August 5, 2012, 2-3pm in the Topeka Room (204) to discuss his newest mystery. In The Sacrifice, the FBI races to find a kidnapped baby before she’s sacrificed by a satanic cult. The newborn daughter of a Texas state senator is snuck out of the hospital, and FBI agents John Ransom, a crafty veteran, and Kathy Devereaux, a striking Cajun rookie, head the pressure-filled investigation to save the infant. The agents learn a Palo mayombre cult plans a human sacrifice. But there are other suspects, and all possibilities must be checked. The agents catch the senator getting cozy with a nurse from the hospital. Evidence shows inside help in the kidnapping, adding more suspects to the list. They’re all found to belong to the cult, and they plan to sacrifice the senator’s baby. Now the FBI must trick the bloodthirsty cultists and stop the ceremony before they do the unthinkable.
