An explosive, sweeping account of the pedophile scandal that has sent the Catholic church into a tailspin and the fight to bring it to justiceIn the mid-1980s a dynamic young monsignor assigned to the Vatican's embassy in Washington criss-crossed America to investigate the problem of pedophile priests. At every stop he found secret files revealing complaints that had been hidden from police and covered-up by the hierarchy. He also understood that the US judicial system was eager to punish offenders and those who aided them. He presented all this to the American bishops, warning that the church could be devastated by scandal and bankrupted by its legal liability. They ignored him.Meanwhile, a young lawyer listened to a new client describe a sexual relationship with a priest that began when he was ten years-old. His parents' complaints were downplayed by Church officials who offered them money to go away. He saw a claim that any defendant would want to settle. Then he began to suspect he was onto something bigger, involving thousands of priests who had abused countless children while the church had done almost nothing about it. The lawsuit he filed would touch-off a legal war of historic and global proportions.Part history, part journalism, and part true-crime thriller, Mortal Sins promises to strike the same chords as All President's Men, The Informant, and As the Band Played On as it reveals a long and ferocious battle for the soul of the largest and oldest organization in the world.  Praise for The State Boys Rebellion:"D'Antonio . . .  is an exceedingly able storyteller. . . . A gripping story."- Chicago Tribune"Stunning . . . a vivid, careful, and ultimately momentous piece of journalism."- The Boston Globe"D'Antonio's book is both engaging and valuable. . . . In moving and eloquent detail, Michael D'Antonio shows what happens to people when public policy enacts bad science." - The Washington Post
