Three pipe bombs exploded in Salt Lake County in 1985, killing two people. Behind the murders lay a vast forgery scheme aimed at dozens of other victims, most prominently the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.Mark Hofmann, a master forger,MoreThree pipe bombs exploded in Salt Lake County in 1985, killing two people.

Behind the murders lay a vast forgery scheme aimed at dozens of other victims, most prominently the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.Mark Hofmann, a master forger, went to prison for the murders. He had bilked the church, document dealers, and collectors of hundreds of thousands of dollars over several years while attempting to alter Mormon history. Other false documents of Americana still circulate.The crimes garnered intense media interest, spawning books, TV and radio programs, and myriad newspaper and magazine articles.

This is a thoughtful corrective to the more sensationalized accounts. More important, Richard Turley adds substantially to the record with previously unavailable church documentation and exclusive interviews with church officials, giving this book greater depth and resonance. He also goes beyond the Hofmann case, illustrating how forgeries have hampered the churchs efforts to document its history.Victims includes a complete appendix of every known document the church acquired from Hofmann, reviews of trial transcipts and police reports, as well as dozens of photographs, some never before published
