The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

In writing this book he was open and honest about himself and his life. He shares his personal downfalls as well as his great accomplishments. His accomplishments he shares with you the reader are related with pride without being prideful. I really enjoyed this book.

In the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (FLDS), girls can become valuable property as plural wives, but boys are expendable, even a liability. In this powerful and heartbreaking account, former FLDS member Brent Jeffs reveals both the terror and the love he experienced growing up on his prophet's compound and the harsh exile existence that so many boys face once they have been expelled by the sect.

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.

Would you try another book from Sam Brower and Jon Krakauer and/or Jonah Cummings?

Yes I would. I have read every book by Krakauer.

What did you like best about this story?

The interesting details and insight into Short Creek and the FLDS and especially Warren Jeffs.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was difficult for me at times. It would have really been a great idea for this narrator to do some research into the local pronunciations. I would be listening along and all of a sudden something so common would be mispronounced. Common if you have spent time in Utah, and I grew up there. For example, its not the 'Desert News' - the newspaper in Salt Lake is the

If this book were a movie would you go see it?
