Publisher's Summary

Blake's dead. His wife killed him. The question is, which one?

Rural Utah is a vast, empty landscape where whole communities can be forgotten. Against the wishes of his family and the laws of the Mormon church elders, Blake Nelson has adopted the old polygamous ways and lives alone with his three wives on an isolated homestead miles from anywhere. 

That is, until his dead body is discovered.

Rachel, Emily and Tina - Blake Nelson's former sister-wives - are the only suspects. Who else would have been able to find Blake so far from the rest of civilisation? But as the investigation into Blake's murder intensifies, so spins a web of lies, secrets and long-repressed trauma so complicated that it threatens to drag everyone involved in Mormon Utah's old ways into its dark and horrifying clutches.

And as the sister-wives try desperately to prove that somebody else murdered their husband, will they discover that the women they've been sharing a husband with aren't the women they thought they knew at all?

Tedious

I read some reviews for this book that made me want to read it. Sadly I do not share the positive comments about the story at all and found it very tedious. In some parts I was interested to learn of plural marriages and the lifestyle of Latter Day Saints but On the whole feel the story was rather long winded and boring in places.
