What-or who-could turn a gifted little boy into a murderous thing that calls itself “Satan’s Child”? In search of an answer, a man named Burke travels from a festering welfare hotel to a neat frame house where a voodoo priestess presides over a congregation of assassins. For this vigilante and unlicensed private eye has made it his business to defend the small victims whom the law has failed-even a child who has been made into a killer. Gripping and chillingly knowledgeable about the mechanisms of evil, Sacrificeis a thriller of savage authority from one of the best crime writers of our generation.
