Righteous Synopsis: The Righteous by Michael Wallace is the first book in the Righteous series. In the deserts of Utah, the polygamists have always protected one another. Even if a young woman is killed near her own home, they refuse to talk. But even though they don’t want the outside agencies in their business, it doesn’t mean this murder will go unsolved. Over a thousand miles away, Jacob Christianson finds out about his cousin’s murder. Jacob is a medical student and son of an elder of the church, and he is skeptical of some of the fundamentalist beliefs of the church. Due to his sharp mind and eye for details, he is chosen to investigate his cousin Amanda’s death. He goes to Blister Creek, Utah with his sister, Eliza, to look into the murder. They quickly realize it was no random murder, but part of a plot to overthrow the leadership of the church.
