Was the martyrdom of the prophet Joseph Smith Jr. simply the result of spontaneous anarchy or was it a carefully orchestrated assassination?

Bestselling author Keith Terry and co-author Henry Holmes shed dramatic new light on the fateful and inexorable events leading up to the fatal shots that spilled the "best blood of the nineteenth century."

Pulsating with political and religious tension unlike any period in American history, the presidential campaign of 1844 initiated a dark chain of events culminating in murder. Scenes of conspiracy and intrigue come to life in this thoroughly researched novel, dramatically exploring the mindset, motives, and methods behind their diabolical plans.

Desperate to retain their seats of power, hateful men united in blood oaths to destroy an American originalā€”the Prophet Joseph Smith.

True to the history, timing, and cadence of real events, readers will be astonished to learn how a gentle man of God, with malice toward none, could be hunted and hounded like a common criminal for his claims of visionary revelation, angelic guidance, and truth restored by divine authority.

Praise for the book

I loved this book! Not knowing much about Mormon history I spent a lot of time checking into the internet information about the people in the book, not realizing that there was so much informative info in the back of the book! The research that was done by the authors for this book made it that much more enjoyable."

It is a powerful narrative seamlessly wrapped in the vivid colors of historical fiction.

This story needs to be made into a movie it's a story that needs to be heard and exposed in America and throughout the world. I liked how the authors brought the characters out and how the narrator pulled out each personality throughout the story line. I wanted to listen to the book the whole way through as soon as I turned it on. Highly recommend.
