This is the sensational inside story of a frightening Canandian cult leader and his eight wives the first full account of a staggering reign of terror at Rock Theriault s two communes in Quebec and Ontario A three year publication ban on evidence was lifted only after Theriault pleaded guilty in January 1993 to a charge of second degree murder But even then much horriThis is the sensational inside story of a frightening Canandian cult leader and his eight wives the first full account of a staggering reign of terror at Rock Theriault s two communes in Quebec and Ontario A three year publication ban on evidence was lifted only after Theriault pleaded guilty in January 1993 to a charge of second degree murder But even then much horrific material was never released This book makes it clear that when Canadians read of a Charles Manson or a David Koresh, they cannot look complacently southwards and say it can never happen here How did Theriault, who called himself Moses, maintain control over his eight wives and twenty six children How could someone once described as a renaissance man be so sadistic How is it conceivable that the women he married stuck with him through torture, drunken orgies and the removal of their children by an appalled Children s Aid Society What sort of prophetic charisma led Rock Theriault s followers to work tirelessly for him in remote bush country and become unquestioning witnesses to and victims of his atrocities How was Theriault able to charm his way past so many psychiatrists and social workers Finally, what, if anything, can relatives or the police do to intervene in such a cult unless or until crimes are brought to light No one who absorbs this shocking story can take lightly the date on which Rock Theriault can apply for parole No one who reads this remarkable piece of investigative reporting can fail to be compelled by the amazing narrative it unfolds.

    Oh, dear God, what a horrible story. This guy combines the worst features of Jim Jones and Charlie Manson, but he's crazier than both of them put together. Just read it and see for yourself. This story is also a powerful testament to the human pain threshold. (She said, shuddering) Well written, with a group of Children's Aid Society social workers emerging as the unexpected heroes of the piece.

    Reading this story scared the living shit out of me!! It always amazes me how some people can fall under the spell of a person such as this, even knowing the dynamics of why they do, I still have trouble accepting that they do. This man is pure evil. It made me physically ill to read about all the cruelties he exposed not just the adults under his spell to but also the little innocent children. May he rot in hell forever!

    I tried really hard with this book, but I just couldn't get into it. I do know the story for the most part since I have watched the movie. Like all books made into movies I suspect the book held more accurate details, but I'll never get to know. I sometimes have trouble reading books written by journalists, and this is the case with this one. They write in a style that doesn't always hold my attention, and to take a story as sensational as this one and make it a bit of a bore to read is really s [...]

    This was an interesting read. I grew up in the area in which Rock settled in Ontario, and he was often in the news when I was a child. Our family had several random brushes with his group, luckily nothing worthy of being included in this book. Rock's murder (in prison) in 2011 somewhat reignited my interested in the group and I eventually got around to picking up this book. If you're interested in Canadian true crime stories, you might want to add this one to your list.

    astonishingly scarey to think how one person's delusions of grandeur can so overwhelmingly destroy the lives of so many people
