Brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty insist they were commanded to kill by God. Krakauer's investigation is a meticulously researched, bone-chilling narrative of polygamy, savage violence and unyielding faith: an incisive, gripping work of non-fiction that illuminates an otherwise confounding realm of human behaviour.

Incite into the fanaticism involved with some religions

I didn't know much about Mormons before but now I have a much better idea of what is behind their beliefs. It's scary the things people will use their religion to justify.
