"A remarkable man on many levels, Sam Brower is the real deal. Readers are apt to find his firsthand account of bringing Warren Jeffs to justice both extremely disturbing and absolutely riveting."-Jon Krakauer, from the foreword to Brower's book 'Prophet's Prey'.

In this interview with Claudia Cragg, Brower discusses his book in which the private investigator who cracked open the case that led to the arrest of Warren Jeffs. He tells the tale of the maniacal prophet of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) in a horrifying story of how, Sam Brower says, "a rogue sect used sex, money, and power disguised under a facade of religion to further criminal activities and a madman's vision".

Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole, astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice. In this book, Brower implicates Jeffs in his own words, bringing to light the contents of Jeffs's personal priesthood journal, discovered in a hidden underground vault, and revealing to readers the shocking inside world of FLDS members, whose trust he earned and who showed him the staggering truth of their lives.
