True Stories from the Domestic Violence and Sex Crimes Unit
Sarena Straus was a propsecutor in the Office of the Bronx DA's office, in the midst of an area of America with one of the highest crime and poverty rates. Ms. Straus began with a burning desire to be part of the safety net, to prosecute those who terrorize the most defenseless among us. How and why she had to quit is the unusual psychological tale of this book. It is a true-crime memoir; a tribute to the DAs, support staff, doctors, social workers, cops and advocates who truly do God's work.
