"...Wallace's writing is brilliant and engrossing." - Crimespree Magazine
"A dashing tale of suspense, religion, and intrigue." - SFFWorld, SciFi, Fantasy and Horror
"... Wallace takes a page from Stephen King, using descriptions of violence strong enough to upset in a way violence should, but leaving enough unsaid to allow imagination to fill in the gaps (or not)." -Laura Compton, AML
"Deeply engrossing! Michael Wallace delivers the thinking man's thriller...." Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Live to Tell
From the Back Cover
"Deeply engrossing! Michael Wallace delivers the thinking man's thriller while establishing one of the freshest male leads in crime fiction--Jacob Christianson, an aspiring doctor and cult elder's favored son. Jacob's analytic nature has him questioning everything, including the nature of God and the sexist politics of polygamy. It also makes him a perfect fit to track down a killer whose grisly crimes threaten Jacob's community, family, and soon, his very life." --Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Live to Tell
"Wallace authoritatively and unsparingly tears open the veil shrouding a Utah polygamist community and its secret oaths of blood atonement, temple sacrifice, and angels with drawn swords. Inside we find a riveting thriller that recaptures everything lost from the original American religion."
--Jeffrey Anderson, National bestselling, International Thriller Award nominated author of SLEEPER CELL.
