About the Book

If you dealt with violence all day, how long would it be before you cracked? Sarena Straus was a prosecutor in the Bronx District Attorney’s office, working in an area of the Bronx with the highest crime and poverty rates in America. This book chronicles her experiences during her three-year stint with the Domestic Violence and Sex Crimes Unit, combating crimes against women and children. The literal and emotional battles eventually destroyed her. Ms. Straus began with a burning desire to prosecute criminals who terrorized the most defenseless members of society. This book details how and why she finally had to stop. It is a true-crime memoir, an account and tribute to the assistant district attorneys and their support staff—physicians, social workers, victim advocates, and cops—who do what is truly God’s work.
