“A sassy, dedicated heroine...a lot of fun.” —LOCUS
"A remarkable man on many levels, Sam Brower is the real deal.
Readers are apt to find his firsthand account of bringing Warren Jeffs
to justice both extremely disturbing and absolutely riveting."-Jon
Krakauer, from the foreword
From the private investigator who cracked open the case that led to
the arrest of Warren Jeffs, the maniacal prophet of the polygamous
Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), comes the
page-turning, horrifying story of how a rogue sect used sex, money, and
power disguised under a facade of religion to further criminal
activities and a madman's vision.
Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full
story has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole,
astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years
of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and
bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice. In Prophet's Prey,
Brower implicates Jeffs in his own words, bringing to light the
contents of Jeffs's personal priesthood journal, discovered in a hidden
underground vault, and revealing to readers the shocking inside world of
FLDS members, whose trust he earned and who showed him the staggering
truth of their lives.
Prophet's Prey offers the gripping, behind-the-scenes account of a bizarre world from the only man who knows the full story.
