Salamander: The Story of the Mormon Forgery Murders with a New Afterword Reviews

  • James Badger
    What an astonishingly gripping tale of a true crime. This book was simply impressive on a number of fronts. First of all, the depth of the research that went into the making of this book is simply staggering. Secondly, I commend the authors for writing nonfiction which unfolded like fiction. Looking...

    I wish I had remembered to review this a month ago when it was fresh in my mind. This was an excellent true life crime book and very fair to all involved. I could hardly put it down. I loved learning about how the detectives figured out that almost everything Mark Hoffman ever sold was a forgery and...

    I have read Salamander: The Story of the Mormon Forgery Murders by Allen D. Roberts and Linda Sillitoe previously and I will probably read it again. I remember when all this happened and I find the story as fascinating today as I did so many years ago. This is a well written book with lots of detail...

    Not as rivetingly written as "The Mormon Murders", but still fascinating, and in many ways more detailed in its account of the Hoffman forgeries and murders. ...

    Super interesting non-fiction read about the forgeries and bombings that occurred in the 80's. This book honestly read more like a Dan Brown book than a historical account. The authors weren't LDS, but I felt that it was a pretty unbiased telling, which I appreciated. This is a great historical read...

    Incredibly detailed account of Mark Hofman murders that took place in Salt Lake City in the mid 1980s. I appreciated the details about LDS church leaders like Hinckley and Pinnock who purchased forgeries from Hofmann or helped line up massive loans for Hofmann. I also found the forensic details arou...

    There is an old board game called "careers." Players can win by choosing, Love, Fame or Money. A friend who played this game often as a child, learned to "win" by choosing Money. Mark Hofmann was a Mormon Eagle Scout who forged historical Mormon documents and sold many to Mormon church officials. He...

    I'd actually give this book 3.5 stars if I had the option. It was readable and I have several other books about the case I haven't read yet so I will need to read them to see how other authors handled the amount of information involved in this complicated and convoluted case. I don't think the two w...
