Killjoy is the story of a cop's ten year personal war against child sexual abuse, against the indifference and social denial that allows this crime to exist in our society and grow at an alarming rate. Rather than report from a high crime, urban center like New York, this memoir shows how the battle is equally brutal in a small, picturesque Vermont town. Rollie Powell's stories show that child sexual abuse knows no bounds and unless steps are taken to stop it, no limits. It is THE most devastating crime in our society today.
