Format: Paperback
This book, authored by a former Republican Nebraska State Senator, exposes the elite web of crime, satanic cults, and child sexual abuse that reaches through the highest levels of power in our society. The organized cover-up and suppression of the events and victims' accounts is well documented, as is the author's role as attorney in the investigations and court cases. It's interesting that former CIA director Bill Colby ambiguously acknowledged to the author that the scenario described is real, and not long thereafter Colby turned up dead under suspicious circumstances. This is a good book to recommend for those in denial about the depravity and deviousness of those with power and influence in our society. The only significant weakness about the book is that it does not go into much discussion of the larger context of elite cults and organized conspiratorial activity, instead just focusing on a small portion of this activity.

This book is quite shocking in many ways. The allegations of child abuse, money laundering, drug running and official governmental cover-ups both big and small. The Iran-Contra affair and CIA mind control. How do they all play in this midwestern state? Read this book to find out.
If it's true it is totally shocking. And how can it not be true? While the allegations many times appear outlandish the writer names names and points fingers at very powerful individuals. Why has no one filed law suits for slander if these allegations are not true? That brings is back around to the unbelievable thought that these allegations are true.
A groundbreaking book that sometimes seems to go off on tangents but all the while is a very important read. Witness the power of the government in ways that most people don't realize exists, the sordid underbelly. Outstanding.

Format: Paperback
I first saw the accusations in the book on a half finished Yorkshire television documentary that never made it to television. The allegations were so horrific in the film; it near enough reduced me to tears. So shocked at the material in the film I had to read the book. Sadly the book documents episodes that are far more disheartening than the film did.

A telling feature about this book is the clear cut reputation and standing of its author and the circumstances behind his involvement in the story.

Of all the dodgy conspiracies and tall tales circulating today, none is more compelling, possible or disturbing as this and moreover the tide of evidence would suggest the author is telling the truth. This book stands up like no other as it accuses figures of complicity in actions that are virtually libellous. Yet has faced no litigation action, except one case where the author won.

And another case where his client's abuse and mental anguish was recognised by the court that tellingly was late in the 1999's in relation to a figure central to the story. Not to mention the original court case that's central to the book, in relation to Larry King. ( this is all public record now.)

I cannot stress how important this book is, it remained fresh in my mind for weeks.

This is one book that has to be read, if you're American the material in this book would shock you. I watched a recent episode of Oprah about missing children in America In which a statistic was used which shocked me. 2,000 children go missing in the United States every single Day!!!

That links to this book in so many ways, an absolutely terrifying, yet fascinating read.

Format: Paperback
I live in Omaha. I married a man who graduated from boystown. I know two of his friends from boystown, one who worked in the media and the other worked at franklin credit union. All 3 attended the parties. All 3 were coke addicts. All three witnessed child abuse. All 3 kept their mouths shut. My husband told me the truth but realized there was nothing he could do. Who was going to listen to a cokehead? I know it's the truth. Call us crazy when the corruption gets so bad that it affects YOU.

Format: Paperback
I met former state senator John DeCamp a few months ago at the Olde Main Street Inn in Chadron, Nebraska. We traded books. Actually he bought both of mine, and then a few weeks later he sent me a copy of his, gratis. Despite being impressed by the man, I immediately discounted his self-published book as another conspiracy account with Satanism and the CIA. But as I read it rang true. I began to corroborate (check out the banned documentary, Conspiracy of Silence, the Gunderson Report, and Noreen Gosch's "Why Johnny Can't Come Home"). I have no doubt that the vast majority, if not all of this revelation is true. Why would DeCamp sacrifice a comfortable and affluent existence (private law firm, lobbyist) and risk the well-being and safety of his family to expose this? A very disturbing account, especially the media's role in discrediting victims' testimony and the many "accidental deaths" surrounding the investigations. The press has the only existing power to counter governmental malfeasance, and their failure in this is glaring. I'm glad now that Amazon demands real names on reviews because I see a number of glossy discredits without names. More of the cover-up people undoubtedly trying to keep their sorry carcasses out of jail. Get the newest edition, if you can, because it contains updates and also interesting insights into some of the recent militia problems and the Oklahoma City bombing. If we can't keep our governmental bodies to some degree accountable, we all lose. The tree of liberty is nourished with the blood of tyrants. I strongly recommend this book and I hope that eventually someone besides these children who were ruined will come forward and justice will be served.
