Author Avraham Azrieli dives behind the Mormon curtain in new elections thriller.
The Mormon Candidate tells the story of a young journalist, Ben Teller, who investigates the suspicious death of a Marine Corps veteran at a motorcycle rally. The victim, a devout Mormon, was involved in secret baptisms for dead American heroes. Teller's prying draws deadly fire, but he persists. A group of disillusioned Mormons helps him infiltrate the Mormon Temple and uncover a secret that not only shocks the nation, but could also derail a presidential candidacy and change the course of American history.
The Mormon Candidate, which is based on meticulous research of the LDS Church practices and rituals, is being compared by book reviewers to The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and Absolute Power by David Baldacci.
