    A former top insider reveals the nightmare world of violence and abuse at the highest levels of the Church of Scientology. One review states: "At home alone, a 14 year old girl takes a phone call from Scientology. This starts a quarter of a century journey of manipulation, betrayal and sexual, physical and mental abuse. This journey leads to the highest management echelon and one woman's courage to break free. A real page-turner." Mark P. Another writes: "Amy Scobee has written a book unlike any other expose of Scientology.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book was a fine "inside story". The writing however was hard to read- not because it was difficult but because it was so simple, full of sarcastic comments and name-calling. It was frustrating because the antics took away from the compelling story of the abuse at the hands of Scientology.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Amy Scobee? Why or why not?

    No. I think she has told her story as best she can


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Danielle Plaso?

    Anyone who can read a sentance without having to sound out each syllable.

    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
