#Review: Sacrifice by Coral Russell @clrussell47 #Crime
***Disclosure: I purchased this book at Amazon.com.***
I freely admit I am not usually interested reading about drug cartels, how drugs are shipped or anything similar. For me using drugs is a choice, a choice that some people make because they are either to scare or fearful of facing the truth in life. The drugs makes it easier for them to cope. I have little patience for people who try to give me a sad sob story about how horrible there life has been because of the drugs. They made the choice to use drugs, they became addicted then they want to cry and think my hard working tax dollars should support them because they are not able to hold a steady job or because they just can’t work due to side effects from the drugs. I am not sorry. They made the choice to use just like I made the choice to not use drugs. The above opinion is my own and it is the same for alcohol, gambling or any other addiction.
This book was on my Kindle and I was jumping around trying to find something to read that captured my attention. Something that would take me away from all the noise and activity at the DFW airport terminal. This book captured my attention. It made me wonder if something similar has actually happened in the pursuit to get drugs moved from Mexico to the USA.
When starting I knew this book would be something about drugs, I just did not know that moving drugs required so many people. Or what some people would do just to either get away from the life of being a drug runner or how the drug cartel did not care who they hurt with the drugs.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author created an interesting story for readers providing a glimpse into the life of the drug runners / drug cartel. The bunnies and I highly recommend this book.
The bunnies and I give this book carrots.
“Live for God. Live for your mother. Die for your gang.”
When Mexican drug cartels fight for control along the border, Juarez becomes the murder capital of the world. In El Paso, Texas it’s drug business as usual: a grifter sets out to buy her freedom, a car salesman runs drugs to make his fortune, a gang leader battles to rise among the ranks of the cartel, and a detective and his wife are ripped apart by a family secret. Everyone’s fate lies in the hands of an old woman. Will she let the past die with her or take revenge the only way she knows how?
Sacrifice is a fast-paced, gritty story that’ll keep you guessing, gasping, and gripping your eBook.
