"Desert Atonement: Polygamy's deadly dark side"

When Prophet Ronald Hansen III murders the wife of a journalist who is exposing the prophet's polygamous cult, the stage is set for a desert showdown. Jan Kucera, recently retired to his family's ranch in northern Wyoming, is facing the religious fanatic alone, except for his old friend, Sheriff Monster Broadbeck.

Prophet Hansen, wealthy, politically connected, and in command of a virtual army, has vowed to kill Kucera . At the same time, the prophet is losing connection with reality, and his own followers face the uncertain prospect of a Jonestown-style massacre.

Can Kucera summon the courage to face down the madman and rescue those caught in his prophetic grip?
