The twin towns of Colorado City, AZ and Hildale, UT are, at first glance, quaint. Little girls in prairie dresses and little boys in button up shirts follow their mothers to the stores. The men, in their shiny, turbo-charged pickups have a reputation as some of the best contractors around. The center of town life, as it is in most Mormon communities, is the Meeting House.
Every Sunday, the whole town meets to listen to the words of their spiritual leader, Warren Jeffs calling from the correctional facility in Texas where he’s serving a life sentence for marrying – and raping – two girls under the age of 15.
Prophet’s Prey is the story of Warren Jeff’s tyrannical rule over the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, and the near-decade long investigation that brought Jeffs to justice – but was unable to remove him from power.
