John Bennion | An Unarmed Woman & Ezekiel's Third Wife

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

John Bennion will join us to read from and sign his new western mysteries, An Unarmed Woman and Ezekiel's Third Wife

In An Unarmed Woman Rachel O’Brien Rockwood, like her stepfather J. D., longs to hunt criminals and other miscreants. So when, in 1887, during the height of US anti-­polygamy legislation, two federal deputies on the lookout for Mormon polygamists are murdered in the small village of Centre, west of Salt Lake City, she jumps at the chance to join the investigation.  As fast as J. D. and Rachel can uncover clues, the local Mormon bishop brushes them aside, insisting instead that the deputies committed thievery and fled westward. Whose theory is true—Rachel’s, J. D.’s, the bishop’s? Or will the story be shaped by the federal marshal, openly hostile to all things Mormon?

Ezekiel's Third Wife takes place in the desert of Utah in the 1890's. Rachel, the third wife of a Mormon patriarch, sneaks out to visit her secret, second husband. Instead of him, she finds her sister wife murdered in an irrigation ditch and her new husband’s boot prints around the body. Her stepfather gathers a posse to track the apparent killer. Rachel is left behind in town, trying to uncover the real killer before her stepfather catches up to her husband and one shoots the other.
