Sacrifice is the twelfth solo studio album by English musician Gary Numan, released in October 1994 by Numa Records. Its release followed a self-acknowledged career low point, Machine + Soul (1992), and is often cited as marking the start of a critical and artistic rejuvenation for the one-time pop star. The album was released in the US in 1997 with a different cover by Joseph Michael Linsner, and a new title, Dawn, based on the comic book character of the same name, but the track listing was identical.

The serial killer stabbing young women to death in Cancun hotels with an ancient Maya sacrificial flint knife is aptly nicknamed Gilbert, after the hurricane that also devastated the tourist industry in Mexico's tropical paradise.Luis Balam - a rare full-blooded Mayan and an ex-traffic cop who lost his job because he refused to compromise his integrity - fears one of his people will be accused of the killings and all of them made to suffer. When Proctor Smith, a shabby North American missionary, is arrested at the scene of the fourth murder, Luis would like nothing more than to see the Mayans exonerated - but an instinct for truth tells him that the hapless gringo in the Cancun prison has been framed.Becoming involved - unofficially - in the investigation, Luis finds himself again confronting the cruel forces of brutal power and rampant corruption that control Mexico's coastal playground and that have already cost him a career. Working with an ambulance-chasing Mexican lawyer, a misguided flying saucer cultist, and the mucha simpatica sister of Gilbert's latest victim, Balam unearths new depths of local greed and depravity.Although the goons of a vicious playboy make it clear that this time he could lose more than a job, Luis Balam is determined to free the fall guy by finding the real killer.

I read this book years ago after a trip to the Yucatan in the early 90's and enjoyed it. I recently went back to the same area, how it has changed, and wanted to re-read it, but couldn't think of the title. After searching many search terms I found it thanks to the unforgettable cover. "Blood Sacrifice" of course!

Gary Alexander's "Blood Sacriface" introduces us to a full blooded Mayan named Luis Balam. He sells touristy trinkets, and does tour guiding. Luis was also a traffic cop before a rich and powerful heir got away with murder due to corrupt higherups that let Luis go for pressing it. Luis now is hired by lawyer trying to find evidence on whether a missonary from Oklahoma is the serial killer "Gilbert", who kills young attractive women with a flint knife(possibly Mayan). Soon, Luis is warned to look away from the rich man who he tried to put away before, and he and the sister of the latest victim team up to see if the missionary was set up. Quirky characters, and a side of Cancun you have never seen. Good work of fiction
