In the mid-1980s a dynamic young monsignor found secret files revealing complaints that had been hidden from police and covered-up by the hierarchy. He presented this to the American bishops, but they ignored him. D'Antonio presents an explosive account of the pedophile scandal that has rocked the Catholic Church.
