"Harrowing but humane. An extraordinary story, impeccably researched."
"Immaculately researched...This important book looks at how (and asks why) these abuses happened, defying the cult's motto: "unseen, unheard, unknown"."
"It's a remarkable [story]: hair-raising, unfathomable and deeply disturbing."
"A powerful work of investigative journalism...pieced together in exacting detail"
"[A] compelling account of one of Australia's most notorious cults...The authors trace the extraordinary life of a woman who operated "at the edges of human belief"."
--The Saturday Age
