About this title


Utah polygamy is a hot topic. While many are productive citizens, their leaders are predators, selling salvation, wives, and position for money. A fact-based novel of the murder of polygamist leader Rulon Allred, a story of intrigue, murder, and sex.

From the Author:

A recent criminal case in Utah continues to receive worldwide attention. A father beat his 16- year-old daughter unconscious when she tried to leave her uncle/husband, of whom she was the 15th wife. Left horribly bruised and alone in an abandoned barn miles from home, she staggered seven miles late at night to a pay phone and called 911. The father and uncle were found guilty of child abuse, but the state did not file polygamy charges a touchy issue in Utah.

Polygamy is a subject that stirs curiosity. Even in Utah, many people do not know much about the underground life of polygamists. The recent two-hour "Investigative Report" by A&E is revealing and, after reading this book, one can easily follow that program and recognize the various groups.

Polygamy has become a public relations nightmare for Utah, especially with the Olympics coming. A new task force is being put together to "deal with it." Yet, it is a sticky issue, not only from a constitutional point of view (where same-sex marriages are being quoted as a similar issue to polygamy), but from a practical one. What does one do with all the children if a man is removed and sent to jail. What does one do with all the women who are untrained for the outside world. Political pressure is being brought to bear on the governor to prosecute polygamists, yet he is a descendant of polygamists, as are many Mormons. In fact, there are many thousands of non-Mormon polygamists in the U.S.

People call me an insider expert on polygamy because I am known and trusted by most of the polygamist leaders. This fact-based novel illuminates the issue of Polygamy in a new way. The reader gets an inside view of the day-to-day life of what it all means and how it is lived by each group and their very real men, women, and children.

The hot button today is the abuse that goes on within that community. It is a topic that will not die down because the Media has seized upon it for "news" and as the Olympics for Salt Lake City draws closer, this will only intensify.
