(The first book in the Gwen Marcey series)

A truly enthralling novel chocked full of action, intrigue, and twists and turns. Parks, being a forensic artist, is well versed on the topic, and the research for the Mountain Meadows Massacre is dramatic and heart wrenching. I loved this book and read it just a couple of days. It was hard to put down!

Author Parks piles too much on Gwen Marcey's shoulders. The forensic artist is loaded down with a snide ex-husband, a bratty teen daughter, and is a breast cancer survivor. Her feats of physical exertion were just unbelievable for this reader.

Still, the Mountain Meadows Massacre and other Mormon history are well told.
