Waterstones Says

Shocking and provocative yet balanced and empathetic, Krakauer's brilliantly crafted account of brutal murder within a Mormon Fundamentalist community is a fascinating deep dive into the extremes of American faith.

Brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty insist they were commanded to kill by God. In Under The Banner of Heaven, Jon Krakauer's investigation is a meticulously researched, bone-chilling narrative of polygamy, savage violence and unyielding faith: an incisive look inside isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities in America, this gripping work of non-fiction illuminates an otherwise confounding realm of human behaviour.
