Read in October, 2009

A fictional account of many intertwined stories...murder, polygamy, and a few things in between.
Very long..the font painfully small but still a thoroughly entertaining read.
The jumps between stories (murder, Ann Eliza, Brigham) were all very fascinating and well thought out.
Spoiler-The solution to the murder is left practically to the very end.
I was disappointed, feeling the author rushed to slap a few details to gether after dragging this case out for the entire book.
