"[Pelonero takes] pains to present a fully-realized portrait of Kitty so that readers won't forget that she was a person, not a player in an anecdote. . . . One comes away with a deeper appreciation of the personal turmoil suffered by Kitty's friends and family as well as the depth of Moseley's depravity."-- Boston Globe

"The definitive account of a dark moment in US History, at once richly detailed, deeply humane, and profoundly compelling...Pelonero's book will leave you moved and enlightened."- Adam Alter, author of Drunk Tank Pink

"Catherine Pelonero has consulted all the original files and tracked down every surviving participant for her definitive analysis of the case. Reading her pages evokes anger and anguish in equal measure."-- The Advocate

"Pelonero... [gets] readers thinking about gender as a crucial key to the puzzle." -- The Nation
