The author used the death of 7-year old foster child Ricky Holland as an example to highlight problems of abuse and mistreatment in the foster care system. The extremely detailed stories go into great depth about Ricky's time in foster care, the abuse heaped on him, his death, the police hunt launched after he was reported missing and the detective work that finally led police to arrest his foster parents.
