Once again, nothing is as it appears. A sleepy Nebraska town is the center of a pedophile ring involving some very high-ranking politicians from the 1980's. I feel I am difficult to shock, but this book is quite disturbing. The author is a State Senator, and the details he unfolds are difficult to accept, but have a ring of authority, and in many cases, are a matter of public records, as several of the cases he cites have gone to court. Followup, appropriate skepticism, due dilligence, etc... but this book *will* torment you.
