This book was so creepy and good. Krakauer is objective and fascinating in his attempts to understand religiously motivated violence by examining the 1984 murder of a woman and her one year old child by Mormon fundamentalists and the history leading up to and surrounding it. You should probably just read the book because it's really hard to explain.
