  1. This book reveals parts of the Mormon faith I find shocking Having traveled through Salt Lake City and found myself in the company of Mormons, many of whom tried to convert me, I was interested in this story, after the author asked me to read and review it We meet the protagonist, Jeremiah, in the opening scenes, and understand his desire and reasons to bring down the Mormon Church As someone unfamiliar with the majority of Mormon religion, I m not sure how much of the book is fact and how much [...]


  2. I liked the overall, high level premise of A Mormon Massacre I ll summarize that as someone in the present day who had ancestors murdered by a group of Mormons in the Mountain Meadows Massacre which was a very real event This character has a hatred of Mormons, passed down through the generations, that is strong enough to view the organization and its members as evil, and to be motivated enough that, given the chance, he would go to great lengths to uncover and expose that evil.However, once we g [...]


  3. This book sets out to use the infamous Mountain Meadows massacre as a backdrop for a modern day Mormon return to the use of earlier Danites The idea of such a plotline has merit but unfortunately, that s as close as it gets to being a worthwhile read It becomes almost immediately obvious that the author knows nothing about the Church he portrays and unfortunately, the uninformed reader may conclude that some of the modern day aspects of the Mormon Church as depicted by the author are as true as [...]


  4. While the history of the Mountain Meadows Massacre is well researched, I struggled to fit what I know of modern Mormonism into the framework of Joseph Rinaldo s novel, A Mormon Massacre The story brings to mind another novel I read and loved recently, Section 132 by Helga Zeiner, and I wish Joseph Rinaldo had set this tale in an unknown breakaway sect or a distant future, rather than trying to ground it in present day Utah.That said, A Mormon Massacre puts believable characters into interesting [...]


  5. I was asked to review this book by the author I was thrilled to agree I knew a few things about the massacre, but not a lot, and I m always interested in learning about other faiths religions, so I was doubly eager to read.Unfortunately, almost from the very beginning, this book failed to deliver Though it s very well written, the book is so incredibly and badly biased against Mormons, that it s very distracting, and one can t get into or enjoy the story, because you are so busy virtually throw [...]


  6. Title Mormon MassacreThe book opens with one of the main characters, Jeremiah Cameron giving a report on the 1857 massacre of the Fancher Baker wagon train There was than 100 people killed by mormons who painted their faces to look like the local indians What should have been a restfully stopping period, to trade items and rest ended a blood bath Men, women and yes some children were killed The author gives a very disturbing but yet clear picture of what happened and how blood thirsty the mormo [...]


  7. I really enjoyed this book Although some of the content is shocking it is very interesting A young man named Jeremiah has a score to settle, although until later in the book he doesn t really understand why, just accepting his father s views on Mormonism He gets a chance to make a difference.The author has skillfully woven a tale of intrigue, danger and deception into true events in the Mormon church and the ultimate experience is riveting The reader is borne along on the wings of a great story [...]


  8. Quite a good book so far It shows how someone could get caught up in being like God and I m finding the conspiracy thread to be interesting Some of my favorite books of all time intertwine a conspiracy theory as a main element While there is spousal abuse which I normally wouldn t go for it adds to the story in this case You really see the characters faults and their good points Many of them show their faults when they are trying to do good.


  9. Excellent plot but a lot of loose ends I found the concept of a college age kid going under cover into the LDS Church to be interesting and the ways that the church government is depicted makes for lots of drama.
