Salt Lake City is hotter than hell. The Church of the Latter-day Saints is about to celebrate Pioneer Day, in honor of the Saints who crossed half a continent searching for a home. And in the sun-scorched streets, PI Moroni Traveler, fallen Saint and former football star, is searching for a vicious serial killer. The murderer's calling card is a videotape of his beautiful victims-beautiful before the self-styled "Jack the Ripper" vents his savage, woman-hating rage. The next target is Claire Bennion, the ex-girlfriend Traveler can't manage to forget. The Church wants the killer stopped, no questions asked. But Traveler has his own reasons for facing down a weird mountain cult, Zion's powerful elite, and a murderer bent on paying for his own sins in innocent blood.… (more)

Odd sort of serial killer book; no bloody body drop scenes (or at least viewed only from a distance). It appears that perpetrator is a missionary gone bad. Subplot involving the illness of Moroni's father; a Mormon (unsuccessful) faith healing by a splinter group and contact with a Mormon healing "witch". The usual back and forth between Moroni and church official and old friend, Willis Tanner. Ending confused me a little. Killer targets Moroni's flighty ex-girlfriend. Moroni's continued attachment to her is a constant through the books I have read (many several years ago). This volume will require a re-read sometime soon. ( )
