I remember the murder of Lori Hacking well...but this book was terrible. The first chapter is FULL of untrue information...I am a Mormon but I didn't even recognize the church that Steven Long was describing in his book (I have NEVER gone to church for 6 hours or called any non-member a gentile). I thought Long centered this book around religion (his poorly researched understanding of the LDS church no less)when religion had really nothing to do with Lori Hacking's murder. When you include a source as the "Jack Mormon" taxi driver that takes you from the airport to your hotel....well lets just say I pretty much questioned all of the sources in this book. Good thing Steven Long is a writer and not an investigavitor or a detective...or the story of Lori Hacking would have had a much different ending

Eva Leger Long IS an investigative journalist! Apparently based in Texas and working for "major" magazines and newspapers.
I just picked this up today at my library for two bucks because I remembered the story from the news. I'm still going to read it to form my own opinion but the reviews on here are definitely leading me to form an opinion already!
