by Steven Naifeh (Author), Gregory White Smith (Author).

SENSATIONAL! -Washington Post.

From left, Gregory White Smith and Steven Naifeh. Van Gogh would also learn from the pointillism of Seurat, the primitive simplicity of Japanese prints, the Symbolists’ embrace of dreamlike imagery. Mr. Smith and Mr. Naifeh nimbly trace van Gogh’s peregrinations, and they evoke the intense atmosphere of creative ferment in Paris during the 1880s. What Mr. Naifeh and Mr. Smith capture so powerfully is van Gogh’s extraordinary will to learn, to persevere against the odds, to keep painting when early teachers disparaged his work, when a natural facility seemed to elude him, when his canvases failed to sell.

Naifeh co-authored, with Gregory White Smith, Jackson Pollock: An American Saga which received the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1991 and was a finalist for National Book Award Nonfiction in 1990. He and Smith also co-authored Final Justice which was an Edgar Allan Poe Award Finalist in Fact Crime in 1994

On October 15, 1985, two pipe bombs shook the calm of Salt Lake City, Utah, killing two people. The only link-both victims belonged to the Mormon Church. The next day, a third bomb was detonated in the parked car of church-going family man, Mark Hoffman. Incredibly, he survived. It wasn't until authorities questioned the strangely evasive Hoffman that another, more shocking link between the victims emerged...It was the appearance of an alleged historic document that challenged the very bedrock of Mormon teaching, questioned the legitimacy of its founder, and threatened to disillusion millions of its faithful-unless the Mormon hierarchy buried the evidence.Drawing on exclusive interviews, The Mormon Murders reconstructs a secret conspiracy of God, greed, and murder that would expose one of the most ingenious con men in the annals of crime-and shake the very foundation of a multibillion-dollar empire to its core.

I read this book after I left the Mormon church. It allows you to understand the length the church leaders will go to prove the Book of Mormon is true when in fact they have no evidence and members are asked to go on faith only. The book is an easy read and is hard to put down. Excellent buy!

Within the first few pages we knew the victims and the perp, but how and why took another 500 pages to explain. The author takes us through what had to be months of tedious investigation and repetitious interviews and repetitive retracing of actions while facing repression from without and within their ranks. And he maintains the energy and surprising twist throughout. Anyone who enjoys a detailed and fascinating who done it that was also reality true will enjoy this book.

Very interesting read. Not many laudable principal characters in the whole cast of the story. Everyone was trying to "get over" on everyone they dealt with in the various transactions being conducted. Nobody had altruistic motivations. An on-line search of the characters reveals how little they were punished, if at all, for their misdeeds. Total corruption. A prima facie case for the separation of Church and State.

I have read this book several times. Had to get a Kindle version since I ruined too many paperbacks! The villain in the story is indeed dastardly, despite looking like a total geek. The police were constantly having problems presenting their case in court due to a pompous DA who thought he knew everything better than anyone. There is forgery, deception, murder, etc. what more can you want? Sex? We are talking about Mormon Utah remember. But there is enough other crime to make up for a lack of sex!

I've had a print copy of this book for years, but couldn't make any headway in reading it until I bought the Kindle edition. Sometimes I thought there was a tedium of trivia, but I came to realize that w/o the details I could not have believed that Hoffman actually carried out his elaborate forgeries and schemes.

Outstanding. One of the best factual accounts of the very secret side of this society. Reads like the very best mystery novels, but written by journalists with the true journalistic ethics that make it genuinely terrifying to anyone paying attention.

Kept my interest through the whole book. Mark Hoffman must be the greatest counterfeiter ever - he not only fooled family and friends and other "experts" but the "prophet" of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Just wonder why the Lord didn't give the prophet a revelation of the counterfeit documents.
It's too bad Mark Hoffman didn't use his "talents" for good use. This is my second read of this book. After the first time, I was discussing it with an LDS friend and I told her she should read it - she took it - never admitted to reading it - and couldn't find it when I asked for it back! Probably threw it away - but there are lots of used copies out there - in case there is any other LDS member who would like to read the TRUE story.
This book is very well researched and gives an insight into the operation of the Mormon church. The writers are excellent writers, I purchased this book because I read another book they wrote titled "Final Justice" (great book). The Mormon Murders is an interesting story, although its true it reads like fiction. Recommended.
