Summary, etc.:
In November 2000 DeRogatis, a Chicago journalist and music critic, received an anonymous fax that alleged R. Kelly had a problem with 'young girls.' DeRogatis thought breaking the story would have an impact. Instead, Kelly's career flourished. After eighteen years of tenacious journalism, he tells the story of Kelly's career, his own investigations, and brings the story up to the moment when things finally seem to have changed. The result is a darkly riveting account of the life and actions of R. Kelly, and their horrible impact on dozens of girls. -- adapted from jacket
