Journalist Selonnah Zee is off for a vacation to Salt Lake City, to visit her cousin, Roger a former news reporter, Mormon convert. Her boss decides that this trip would be a great time to do a article about Mormon Temples, for the Memphis Telegraph, the newspaper she writes for.

Selonnah arrives in Utah to find out there is much more to report about, than the temples, there has been a high profile murder. It is quickly followed by 2 other murders, then several more weird symbolic crimes against people, all committed with ties to LDS rituals, someone is trying to expose the secrets, horryifying secrets of the LDS church. Selonnah finds herself right in the middle of the investigations. Along with coming to terms with her mom being diagnosed with Alzheimer's, she is overwhelmed by it all.

Latayne C. Scott, the author of this book, a former Mormon herself, has brought us an attention grabbing book, a mystery, with great suspense. There is a wonderful representation of faith, of Annabel, a reporter in Utah, at the paper Selonnah is working with.
