Publisher's Summary

Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints 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 Jeff 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.

©2011 Original material by Sam Brower. Preface © 2011 Jon Krakauer. Recorded by arrangement with Bloomsbury USA. (P)2011 HighBridge Company

    Story
    "All around great"

    If you have ever read or known about Warren Jeffs and polygamy and and the Cults disgusting abuse and acceptance of Pedophilia, Sam Brower does and eloquent job of explaining & exposing the F LDS truth. You will want to stand up and fight for these children. It's a difficult road.

    "Listen to this"

    Every American should read this book. Ten to twenty thousand Americans are essentially living in captivity in a criminal cult and the government won't shut it down. An astounding story, very well told. Gripping.

    Story
    "Fascinating & Frightening"

    A vivid and detailed account of the FLDS leader, his followers and his crimes. Hard to believe and difficult to deny. Recommended for anyone who wants to know more about this cult and its disturbing beliefs.

    Story
    "Very revealing about the evil nurtured in the west"
    What made the experience of listening to Prophet's Prey the most enjoyable?

    The details and exhaustive research.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There aren't any "favorite" characters in the FDS. It was hard for me to even drum up any sympathy for the women, except those raised into it and brainwashed from birth.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Prophet's Prey is just fine.


    Any additional comments?

    My only criticism is that the book could be better-written. It is very repetitive. On the other hand, the author is a private investigator, not a writer, so he is to be forgiven. I admire his investigative work, though. He's done a courageous and selfless thing exposing this evil cult.

    Story
    "Wondering about Sam Brower"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Sam Brower and Jon Krakauer ? Why or why not?

    yes


    Which character – as performed by Jonah Cummings – was your favorite?

    Someone from Utah should have listened to and edited this. There are multiple mispronunciations of common Utah places.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, one long drive


    Any additional comments?

    Okay I can't believe Brower and Krakauer are completely in agreement on this. Brower professes to be a mainstream LDS Mormon but Under the Banner of Heaven goes to great lengths to document how Mormanism led to some of the crazy activities that the FLDS have perpetrated. I just can't believe the Brower dismiss the past of the church he is a member of. I of course applaud his dogged pursuit of Jeffs for being the creepy pedophile that he is.... but but but, how can he still pass off the sins of his own church that helped beget the FLDS?

    "Fascinating true crime story"

    Wonderfully interesting story of an investigator's search for the true. The only issue is the narrator is not quite up to the standards I have found in other books.

    "Well written but a lot to keep up with"

    I like this book. It is very informative. well written but a lot of people and names to keep up with. very neat to hear the story from someone on the inside versus what I have seen b in the media.

    "Good story. Worth a listen."

    Having listened to "Under the Banner of Heaven," this story is definitely a worthwhile listen. However, you don't need to have read it to appreciate the story.

    Story
    "Not very uplifting"

    This book does not leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. It stirred up feelings of rage and a desire to put a stop to the injustices that occur in the FLDS organisation. I wish these girls knew what existed outside of the bubble they are forced to live in. Overall great investigative skills by the author. I am thankful to have a knowledge of the atrocities that are occurring right now.
