really liked it
Read in January, 2008

An extremely engrossing account of the circumstances and history which led two men to commit brutal murders in the Mormon heartland. I'm extremely interested in the wicked things religion drives people to do, and this book did not fall short of deep analysis of the beliefs and convictions which made these two guys tick. Well worth a read for anyone interested in true crime and the motives behind it or for those who enjoy engaging analysis of the effects of opressive fundamentalism.
