Inhaltsangabe: The compelling and disturbing chronicle of the landmark federal case against Judge David Lanier, who abused the women of Dyersburg, Tennessee, through extortion, stalking, obscene telephone calls and rape.
"Horrific and chilling... A book that every woman in America should read, and every man should read, too." Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone
Rezension: "His was a sensibility in which sex, hate, and the lust for power were so intertwined as to be indistinguishable." Are you in the mood for reading about a real-life villain whose abuse of power was compared to that of Henry VIII? Look no further than this small community in West Tennessee, where a detestable judge used his influence over jobs and child custody cases to intimidate several women into a state of sexual victimization and emotional paralysis. Darcy O'Brien's writing is among the best I've ever seen in the true-crime field: it is eloquently descriptive, with a good feeling for character--such as the heroic, yet humble, figure of an FBI agent who cares enough about the community to involve himself in local problems and bring the judge to trial. Power to Hurt is nominated for a 1997 Edgar Award.
