Average Rating:
Rate this:
Overview: 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 favssade 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.

Very interesting and informative read. Very disturbing and made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Those poor children. I wish I could rescue them all. Great book!

The photos in the centre of the book of cult leader Warren Jeffs and his "bride" Merrianne Jessop are among the creepiest photos I've ever seen. A frustrating situation but some of the people in this book have done inspiring things to help the vicitims in Short Creek.

Wow, an extreme read - extremely disturbing and extremely eye opening. An extremely good book about an extreme religion, that every American should be aware of.
