"The Complete Mystery of Matthew Alcott" is so much more than your usual mystery! This novel is a loaded cannon you won’t want to miss!
Matt Alcott is a journalist who works in the records department on archives for the Mormon Church when he discovers some very dark and shocking secrets from the early days of the church as he follows the history of Joseph Smith. Some of these secrets will shock you where he uncovers sexual promiscuity with the prophet among other evils. He will also go on to reveal the secret societies that are alive and well today within the church. He decides to write a expose with all that he has found. The information will rock the Mormon world. While finishing his novel he finds romance within a most forgiving town. He continues to battle old demons and ones he knows personally from his past. The head honchos at the church find out about the novel and will stop at nothing to keep this book off the shelves. In an attempt to do so, they serve up an offer Matt surely can’t refuse.(Shades of a Godfather here?) When he discovers who is behind this scheme he backs off and this is when it gets down and dirty!
J M Oborn is well-versed in the history of the Mormon Church. I was so engaged in this book that I could not, and did not, put it down. It was so interesting to learn about this intriguing religion. I love the way Oborn’s character is portrayed as a strong man who is able to handle an enduring romance in the midst of all the turmoil he faces. I believe this novel is on its way to becoming a best seller!
