Summary From the contest questionnaire: "The eight Globe reporters assigned to the clergy sexual abuse crisis used original reporting and court documents to create a narrative about the scandal rocking the Catholic Church in the U.S. The book profiles the central players in the scandal, including Cardinal Bernard F. Law, the archbishop of Boston, and Rev. John J. Geoghan, a pedophile priest who was ultimately defrocked and imprisoned for abusing minors. The book examines the history of clergy sexual abuse in the United States and its devastating impact on victims and their families."
