A shocking true story that draws on exclusive interviews and secret never-before published documents to reconstruct a tale of enormous greed. This will hold you spellbound until the end.

Great book, the first several hundred pages gives you the "history" of the crimes. The last several 100 is the trial, etc. What a nut Mark Hoffman was!

On October 15, 1985, two pipe bombs shook the calm of Salt Lake City, Utah, killing two people. The only link-both victims belonged to the Mormon Church. The next day, a third bomb was detonated in the parked car of church-going family man, Mark Hoffman. Incredibly, he survived. It wasn't until authorities questioned the strangely evasive Hoffman that another, more shocking link between the victims emerged...

It was the appearance of an alleged historic document that challenged the very bedrock of Mormon teaching, questioned the legitimacy of its founder, and threatened to disillusion millions of its faithful-unless the Mormon hierarchy buried the evidence.

Drawing on exclusive interviews, The Mormon Murders reconstructs a secret conspiracy of God, greed, and murder that would expose one of the most ingenious con men in the annals of crime-and shake the very foundation of a multibillion-dollar empire to its core.

This book is scarey. I have always known that this relgion was based on a false prophet and therefore a false religion but I had no idea at how correct I was. The only way to save those who have innocently joined this church is to completely throw out its founding father history and just go strickly by the Holy Bible.
If you are considering joining this cult please read this book first. Not all protestant churches are based on such lies, deceit and murder. The true story of the bombings is sad enough but thrown into this book is so much of its history that is undeniably evil, definetely not of Gods Holy Spirit! I give the book 5 stars for its honesty and for those who lost their lives serving God through this false religion. A photo in the book says it best, shows a picture of Salt Lake City and calls it little Beirut.

I would add read, STOLEN INNOCENCE, by a former FLDS member. Unbelievable!
