The fulest account to date of the egregious priestly and episcopal mistakes, sins, and crimes that occurred at the epicenter of what almost immediately became a national crisis."
"What we are now calling the Catholic Church scandal began with a court document that could have been buried in a sea of legal papers had it not been for a team of reporters from the Boston Globe.... The Globe's work, both in the stories that began appearing in January and in this book, is extraordinary."
"The Boston Globe investigative team have recast the Globe's findings into compelling, fresh, flowing narrative....BETRAYAL belongs on the bookshelf of those seriously concerned about the governance of clerical sexual abusers."
"The investigative staff of the Boston Globe has done the Catholic Church an enormous favar. It has forced reform on a reluctant Catholic hierarchy.... God bless the Globe, says I. They were the good guys, the guys in the white hats as opposed to the bad guys in the red hats. Thank heaven they won."
"This book is more than a religious and journalistic morality play for modern times. It's a classic example of what serious, long-form investigative reporting and dedicated community service by the press can accomplish."
"If journalism is the first draft of history. BETRAYAL gives present readers and future historians a good start."
