A fascinating well written account of a world news event I remember very well. Everyone wondered, did Traci Lords turn herself in to make loads of money from her last porno movire? This book reveals the truth in a satisfying emotional and thrilling narrative which left me unable to put it down. The story of two very messed up people who found themselves caught in a whirlwind of events which lead to the near collapse of the porn industry. I loved this book. – Amazon Review
This true crime story is a dramatic and tragic rollercoaster narrative nonfiction that reads like a novel.
The year was 1986. Ronald Reagan’s “family values” campaign was in full swing. Caught in the middle of what was really a war on pornography, I became one of the enemies.
I didn’t to want to get back into porn. Having worked in the porn industry for my father as a teenager left me with a repulsion to pornography in general. But then, almost by accident, I met and fell in love with the world’s most famous porn star.
As our relationship blossomed, I encouraged her attempt to leave the industry. As we found we had more in common, I realized the true predatory nature of the only career she’d ever known. That’s when the idea of bringing down the entire porn industry was hatched.
This is the story of that extraordinary, sometimes violent, and emotionally thrilling path.
