"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." Lisa Gardner, New York Times bestselling author of Live to Tell
"... The Righteous
is a page-turner with characters complex enough to wrestle with questions about living in a patriarchal, polygamous society in the 21st century.... 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
