Publisher's Summary

Was the martyrdom of the prophet Joseph Smith simply a random act of violence or was it a carefully orchestrated assassination? Best-selling author Keith Terry and co-author Henry Holmes shed dramatic new light on the fateful and inexorable events leading up to the deadly shots that spilled the "best blood of the 19th century".
Pulsating with political and religious tension unlike any period in American history, the presidential campaign of 1844 initiated a dark chain of events ending in murder. Scenes of conspiracy and intrigue come to life in this deeply researched novel; a dramatic exploration of the mindset, motives, and methods behind the diabolical plans. Desperate to retain their seats of power, hateful men and jealous religionists unite in an unholy alliance to destroy an American original, the Prophet Joseph Smith. True to the timing and cadence of actual events, listeners are transported in time and ushered into the darkened rooms of a shameful chapter in American history.

Excellent Production

Where does Martyrdom Conspiracy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very interesting and informative. The narrator was exceptional. He spoke in many accents, genders and played the roles well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Martyrdom Conspiracy?

A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief

Have you listened to any of Nathan T. Dunford’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first one and I was blown away with his voice talent

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was 14 hours long, so it was in segments.

When I started listening I was traveling a very long distance. I didn't really engage at first as I felt I knew most of the details and could pick up along the way if I started day dreaming. I found my self backing up a lot, so I didn't miss anything. In the end I really enjoyed it a lot, and I would encourage those who are interested in learning more about this event to jump in and enjoy.
