From Publishers Weekly:

Researching this "archeological, anthropological detective story" took the author to the high Andes where priests and witches still conduct sacrificial killings. "Tierney's analysis of the complex evolution of attitudes toward human sacrifice is treated summarily as little more than an addendum to his firsthand accounts of his Andean adventures," commented PW .
