Ian Roshek finally believes in something. The young history professor has studied a contraband copy of the Book of Mormon and he knows what it says is true. But now his newfound convictions will be put to the test as he struggles to listen to the still, small voice, while society screams in his ear.
A taut, must-read thriller, The Believer will cast a lingering shadow and leave you asking what you would give up in order to feel "safe."

The Believer is one of the best sci-fi LDS fiction novels to come out of the woodwork in years and I read this BEFORE we found out that Stephanie and I are cousins!!!!! The plotline was scary, as it could happen. This book is very thought-provoking, had me hooked from page one to the end. I'm very grateful Stephanie has a sequel coming soon. Bravo, Cuz!!!!!!!!!!!! I've already loaned my copy to a friend in our ward book club and she devoured it!!!!!If you like futuristic thrillers, this is the book for you. I would hate to have to read my scriptures in secret. Spooky!!!!!
A rollercoaster of suspense.

This book blew me out of the water. With twist after twist and turn after turn, I was rushed from one page to the next in a whirlpool of action and suspense. And just when I thought it was over, another roadblock loomed, one that seemed impossible. It's rare that a novel can so completely capture my attention. This was truly an accomplishment and I am looking forward to Stephanie's next book.
Wow! Really incredible...

Amazing, entertaining, thought-provoking book. I became so drawn in by the characters and storyline that I couldn't put it down - finished it in about 4 days. Definitely highly recommend this book - you won't regret it! An amazing debut by Ms. Black.
