After his surgery, Marco has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him, but his precinct needs him to focus on the murder of a young serviceman who might have intimate ties to the mayor.
Peyton wants to be there for him; however, when a DEA agent turns up missing, the Ghost Squad is called to the Yucatan to investigate. What they find there will embroil them in a drug war between two countries, where illicit activities are being bartered underground and the players are impossible to identify.
However, as Peyton and her team soon learn, they are facing an adversary that will only be appeased in blood - the blood of humans sacrificed to an uneasy Mayan god.

I really enjoy these Peyton Brooks books. The performance of Kelley Hazen adds so much to the story with her distinguishable voices for the various characters. I thought it was great how this book ended. There were some very unexpected twists in this book. I do not like giving away spoilers in my reviews, and with that said, I did not see the direction this book was going! I love that when an author pulls that off. This book is both a standalone listen and part of a series. I have listened to several books by this talented author and narrator, and will continue to listen to more. I received this book upon my request and have voluntarily written this review. I love this series and have bought the box set that has several of these books in it!

This is Book 5 in the Peyton Brooks, FBI Series but it can easily be enjoyed as a standalone. Listeners of the previous book will recognize that parts of the story are a continuation of that book. It's not often that I wish an audiobook of this length (15+ hours) was even longer, so you know it has to be good! As always, there is so much going on here that the listener is never bored. After a grim discovery, Peyton's case takes her to the Yucatan to investigate. Marco is busy back in San Francisco with two cases of his own. He is also rehabilitating his leg at Peyton's, so there's still hope for those two.
My gosh, I just love this series! The characters are written in such a way that you really come to feel like you know them, flaws and all. The camaraderie between them all is just terrific. The twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end and you'll be rooting for Peyton and Marco to get their relationship back on track. This has everything that I've come to expect from the series - a great story, realistic characters, humor and a bit of romance. The only thing that could make it even better would be great narration. With Kelley Hazen as narrator, problem solved! Distinct, easily identifiable characters and wonderful pacing and emotion have become her trademark. She always manages to deliver a stellar performance. Such an awesome listen! I would recommend Mayan Gods in the Yucatan and the rest of the series.
