    "Blackburn Chronicles by Rick Baude" Having just finished reading a totally boring and dry book by a professional writer on a subject matter that should have been fascinating, it was pretty amazing to pick up this book written by first time author to find it so much richer and interesting. There are times when Rick's writing inexperience shows but those times are few and far between. This is a fictionalized tale of the Blackburn Cult (see this article at Wiki: which operated along the west coast in the 1920’s as told from the inside of the cult by “The Recorder.” Originally The Recorder joined the group to write an expose from the inside and secure his place in the world of journalism. But as the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray, and The Recorders plans went astray with a vengeance! Sinking into the depth of the cult, and following the orders of the cult leader Mary Otis, The Recorder ends up not... More > only losing his goal but also his sanity. They leave in their wake a string a murdered cult members, murdered enemies, sacrificed animals, and broken shattered lives. The book is an excellent opportunity to see inside a cult; however as the outsider you will remain it is difficult for you still to understand how reasonable and intelligent people could fall for the religious teaching of Mary Otis. This is an excellent book written by a promising writer, I’m looking forward to his next volume in the Blackburn Chronicles. If you're looking for a good, fast paced, book you can not do better than the Blackburn Chronicles.< Less
