“Detailed and often shocking. Harrowing stories [that] encourage readers to demand increased protections, know their constitutional rights, and remember that legal recourse for these abuses exists. This is investigative reporting at its most effective.”
“Kirby sheds light on individual and systemic injustices taking place in modern day America. A must read for all Americans.- Norman Siegel, former Executive Director, NYCLU.
“Kirby is relentless in his research (copious end notes are provided) and readers will reel from one story after another. Kirby names names, brings receipts, and delivers a remarkably apolitical work of stirring power. An absolute must-read.”
Booklist (***Starred Review)
“A memorable yet deeply disturbing vision of a nation that prides itself on the liberties it protects for its people but which too often strays from that vision.”
