This book details the painful, torturous, and often unbelievable turn of events in the McMartin sexual molestation case. It offers a critical window on Salem by the Sea, revealing how civil society and the criminal justice system have mindlessly and brutally dealt with young children, their parents, defendants, and their families under the guise of pursuing justice and equity.
