A well written novel with plenty of suspense and intrigue. Really offers a good insight into the governmental problems arising from polygamy.

This book was remarkable. While it was an intriguing mystery, I found myself being more interested in the deep look into a polygamy cult. This is not a victimless crime and the details were disturbing. It's my understanding that this book helped change the polygamy laws in Arizona, where cults straddle its border with Utah to avoid convictions. I highly recommend this book.
