My wife lent this to me to read because it is a local story and one of our police officer friends was involved in the case. The book gives a first person account of how Jennifer Wheatley survived a brutal rape, and rebuilt her life, even as the case went cold for 20 years, and then what its like to finally make it to trial and experience our justice system for real, not just like in movies or tv.
