In this book, the author unravels the truth behind a 25-year-old murder in the Peace Corps. The investigation chronicles how a male Peace Corps volunteer posted to a small island in the South Pacific stalked and killed a female volunteer who had rejected his advances. The man was found to be insane, but when he was returned to the United States under assurances he would be hospitalized for his crime, he went free in a matter of days because he refused to go to the hospital. The investigation also discloses how the Peace Corps tried to suppress the incident at the time.
