    Is this the one?

    Thanks for trying though.

    No that's a different one, All about Mormons described the the founding. Wiki's description is a little sparse.

    I've read "Salamander: The Story of the Mormon Forgery Murders". Anyone who has has a pretty thorough introduction to Mormonism in the 1980s as well as a good insight into the hypocrisy of it.

    Mark Hofmann, 32, pled guilty to two bombing murders in Salt Lake City in 1985, a case that made national headlines. Apparently a successful rare documents collector and church-going family man, Hofmann was really a skillful forger and con artist. A third bomb accidentally exploded in his car, sending Hofmann to the hospital and his undoing. Many of his forgeries cast doubt on traditional views of early Mormonism and were potentially embarrassing to church leaders who purchased them. The leaders were in contact with Hofmann just prior to the murders, which were an attempt to prevent discovery and financial ruin.

    If I remember right, keep my thoughts to myself and then blow them all to hel.
