Brigham Bybee has withdrawn from the routine practice of law and purchased Piute Villa, a motel in Kanab, Utah - not because he wants a motel, but he wants to be near the beautiful Zolene Swapp. When the star approaches him, asking him to prosecute and imprison the most notorious polygamist in the area, T. Rampton Crowe. Brigg accepts; it all seems easy enough. Then Mercy, a "plural wife" of Crowe's, goes to him. Beaten, bloody and terrified, she tells a story of murder and mutilation within the colony she fled. Bybee to go after Crowe for murder; the people who hired him want a showy trial and conviction on the poylgamy charges to prove, as the Olympics prepare to come to Utah, that the state won't put up with immoral and backward behavior. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
