Samuel wants justice for the assassination of his friend Pahoran, Chief Judge of the Nephites, but one question stands in his way: who killed him? In the sequel to Clair Poulson's Samuel: Moroni's Young Warrior, fear has begun to spread through the Land of Zarahemla as rumors escalate that the Lamanites will soon attack. But even more dangerous, the Nephites discover traitors among themselves, threatening to destroy the peace within their own walls. This secret band of evil and dangerous Nephites-the Gadianton Robbers-will break all the rules to gain power and wealth, seeking to overthrow the government through their secret combinations of oaths and murder. As the plot twists and turns through tunnels of treachery and traps, Samuel finds that he is also being hunted. He must rely on his smarts, his stealth, and his faith in God to stay one step ahead of the men who seek to destroy not only him, but his entire family.
