Sam Brower is one of a few individuals not born into the FLDS who possesses a comprehensive knowledge of its inside workings. It is because of individuals like Sam that former FLDS members and I have the hope of the criminal activities being publicly exposed, thereby allowing future FLDS generations to one day claim the protection of freedom. (Carolyn Jessop, author of the New York Times bestseller, Escape)
For the better part of five years I watched with awe (and occasionally provided assistance) as Brower relentlessly tracked Jeffs down, earned the trust of the prophet's victims, and provided state and federal law enforcement agencies with crucial evidence. (Jon Krakauer)
None of the consequences that the FLDS are facing would have happened if it weren't for Sam Brower. Sam is not playing a supporting role; he is the star of the show. (Natalie Malonis, attorney for one of the daughters of Warren Jeffs, taken in the Texas raid) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
"A remarkable man on many levels, Sam Brower is the real deal. Readers are apt to find his firsthand account of bringing Warren Jeffs to justice both extremely disturbing and absolutely riveting."-Jon Krakauer, from the foreword--This text refers to the Audio CD edition. See all Product Description

This book is very well researched and excellently written. I wish I had another word to use instead of enjoy though, to enjoy implies something wholesome and healthy but this book is anything BUT that. Its certainly an addictive read and I could not put it down. To me it sees to be the complete epitome of pornography and by that I do not mean lurid sex though sex certainly features largely on Warren Jessop's agenda. This man is most definitely NOT a prophet and I can only hope and pray to my own higher power that when his time comes to depart this early world his own personal God (Himself? How does that work?) judges him as unfit and sends him straight to the depths of HELL for all eternity! Its where he most certainly belongs! READ THIS BOOK but do not expect it to be a pleasant experience!
