Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Now, nearly a century later, Dee Armstrong as a high school senior writes an award-winning term paper on the Soffel case, drawing the attention of Harriet "Harry" Bromfield, a flamboyant and controversial local T.V. journalist. There is evidence, Harry tells Dee, that Mrs. Soffel kept a secret prison diary in which a shockingly different account of the escape is detailed. Would Dee like to help find it? Despite warnings from her feisty roommate Megan and her artist boyfriend Cory that she may be being used, Dee jumps at the chance, convinced that it is an opportunity for fame and fortune, only to find herself torn by conflicting loyalties and caught in the middle of a conspiracy she could never have imagined.
