For L.A.P.D. detective Aubri Payton, the only thing worse than being abducted is learning the cost of her ransom…
For as long as she can remember, Aubri’s life has consisted of pain and perseverance. A past she can’t explain. A future she can’t quite face. Then, the last thing she wants…a new partner. One she barely tolerates. Strangely, one who seems to understand her. A

Human Sacrifice is a character-intensive story about Detective Aubri Payton. She has lost her partner, Evan Ross, in the line of duty.

I decided to try this book as it was written by a fellow book club member (and the synopsis was interesting). Absolutely marvelous story! This novel had a slow build up, and not too much action in the beginning. Dragging out the set-up for a story is something I would normally find negative, but in this instance it was appropriate for this plot. The reader gets a feeling of the emptiness and despair felt by the main character, Aubri, as she mourns the loss of her police partner and adjusts to a ...more

“Human Sacrifice” by M. Elaine Moore starts on a grim note when L.A.P.D. detective Aubri Payton’s work partner of several years dies in action. Worse, she can’t stand his replacement but is forced to work with him while dealing with her grief.
The characters are set up instantly with viewpoints that allow the reader more insights. Their relationship develops gradually, providing much more depth than most cop dramas do. The chemistry between them develops on a believable pace and was one of the be
