BEAUTY QUEEN, BATTERED WIFE, WORKING MOTHER...
Marie Ragghianti was appointed by the Governor of Tennessee as Chairman of the Board of Pardons and Paroles. Politically naive, she stumbled into a seething web of corruption-pardons sold by public officials to rapists, armed robbers, hardened killers.
SHE RISKED HER CARREER, REPUTATION-EVEN HER LIFE!
Mariebucked the system alone, fighting a ruthless political machine out to dominate an entire state. Before it was over, scandals erupted everywhere. The FBI was warned of a murder contract on her. Four men died violently, one a suicide. And, for the first time in U.S. history, a governor was forcibly removed from office. Marie, who had everything to lose, fought alone-and won.
