Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The inner workings of the Mormon establishment are fascinating as ever.” Kirkus Reviews
“Splendid…Battling springtime torrents, high-heeled harpies who kick him where it hurts the most, interfering churchmen, and a host of convinced traditionalists, Moroni uncovers a surprising, devilish plan. The identity of the Evil One is clear early on, but that doesn’t diminish the suspense in this rewarding novel.” Publishers Weekly
