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.
"A powerful narrative seamlessly wrapped in the vivid colors of historical fiction..." (Tim Ballard, author of The Lincoln Hypothesis)

Very interesting and informative. The narrator was exceptional. He spoke in many accents, genders and played the roles well.
A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief
This is the first one and I was blown away with his voice talent
It was 14 hours long, so it was in segments.
