Description

in the predominantly mormon city of Draper, Utah, some seemingly perfect families have deadly secrets.

Linda Wallheim is a devout Mormon, mother of five boys and wife of a bishop. But Linda's daily routine of church-going, Relief Society meetings, and visiting church ward members is turned upside down as a disturbing situation takes shape in her seemingly idyllic neighborhood. Young wife and mother Carrie Helm has disappeared. Carrie's husband, Jared, claims that she has abandoned the family, but Linda doesn't trust him. As she snoops, trying to learn more about the Helms' circumstances, Linda becomes convinced Jared murdered his wife and painted himself as a wronged husband.

Inspired by a chilling true crime and written by a practicing Mormon, The Bishop's Wife is both a fascinating peek into the lives of modern Mormons as well as a grim and cunningly twisted mystery.
