[Read by Jeffrey Kafer]
In the scorching Utah heat, PI Moroni Traveler must stop a madman.
Salt Lake City is hotter than hell. The Church of the Latter-day Saints is about to celebrate Pioneer Day, in honor of the Saints who crossed half a continent searching for a home. And in the sun-scorched streets, PI Moroni Traveler, fallen Saint and former football star, is searching for a vicious serial killer. The murderer's calling card is a videotape of his beautiful victims - beautiful before the self-styled ''Jack the Ripper'' vents his savage, woman-hating rage. The next target is Claire Bennion, the ex-girlfriend Traveler can't manage to forget. The Church wants the killer stopped, no questions asked. But Traveler has his own reasons for facing down a weird mountain cult, Zion's powerful elite, and a murderer bent on paying for his own sins in innocent blood.

R. R. Irvine is the author of the 'Moroni Traveler' and 'Robert Christopher' series, among others. He studied anthropology and archaeology at the University of California at Berkeley and now lives in Northern California.From Publishers Weekly:
Private eye Moroni Traveler, first met in Baptism for the Dead , is having a miserable summer. The temperature in Salt Lake City is 100 in the morning; his father and partner has a lump in his throat that may or may not be cancerous, and is seeking help from the Church of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), faith healers and splinter religious groups--but not from his son. And the church wants Moroni to drop his case of a missing missionary just as it gets complicated. But after several women are murdered and sexually mutilated, the church returns to Moroni for help, hinting that the killings are connected to the missing missionary. When a former lover of Moroni's is kidnapped, he must find the murderer before she becomes the fifth victim. While delivering some scathing insights into the Mormon church, Irvine burdens his mystery with red herrings, false clues, long quotes from LDS scriptures and a surprise, hard-to-believe solution.
