[Read by Jeffrey Kafer]
In his eighth case, private eye Moroni Traveler finds himself deep in Utah's cult country, a place where, amid power-hungry cult leaders and enigmatic faith healers, dark forces are at work.
Named after a Mormon saint, Moroni Traveler may be Salt Lake City's only gentile private eye that still maintains uneasy contact with the Church of Latter-day Saints. This case finds the former pro football player reluctantly accepting a charge from one of the church leaders to investigate the enigmatic, self-effacing faith healer Jason Thurgood.
Traveler's commission takes him downwind of the old atomic testing sites to the desolate southwest corner of Utah, commonly known as cult country because of the long-standing activity of various polygamists and self-proclaimed prophets there. Currently the area is under the sway of Moroni's Children, a cult headed by the ruthless, power-hungry Orrin Porter. At the same time, Moroni's father and partner, Martin, is working on a missing persons case involving the young mentally handicapped son of an old friend just across the border in Nevada. Oddly, the two cases begin to converge, and the Travelers realize that the superficial answers they seek mask darker, more complex forces at work.
Review: If anyone else is writing about a Mormon detective who quarrels with the Church but still does occasional odd jobs for them, we don't know who they are. What we do know is that Irvine's Moroni Traveler is a wonderful creation, an ex-pro football player who comes home to Salt Lake City to work with his father. In their latest case, the Travelers take on a frightening cultist who leads his followers to a desert down damaged by nuclear testing.
