"This book not only provides a fascinating inside look at the world of journalism, but shows that everyone must be vigilant, or the truth can be forever buried." - Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency

Nancy Louise Lewis finally tells all in her explosive memoir about her 30 years in journalism. Her newspaper career, which began covering a notorious, and until now unsolved 1974 murder in Connecticut, led to attempts on her life by police in two states. Her take on the experience: “You don’t have to be black to have cops wanting you dead!”
Lewis uncovered newspaper corruption wherever she worked, as well as dysfunction in government at all levels. She said, “Part I details my poisoning at the hands of constabularies and others in Louisiana, after I exposed an until now unpublished account of a massacre of black soldiers in 1942, which was covered up by the Army and my newspaper.
“Part II describes homelessness in detail from a first-hand perspective, both on the East Coast and in New Mexico, and it features columns I published while on the streets. Part III describes the effort of Santa Fe cops to eliminate me permanently after I'd become a thorn in the sides of corrupt officials and newspapers by filing 40-odd lawsuits.”
She added, “I hope this book will precipitate change in journalism, the love of my life.”
“This book not only provides a fascinating inside look at the world of journalism, but shows that everyone must be vigilant, or the truth can be forever buried. We are proud to announce this powerful book’s release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
