Excerpt

Excerpt from The Whistleblower:

I was a police investigator certified in forensic science and contracted to work on human rights abuses. But my superiors continuously tried to bury my cases.  When I was promoted to UN Headquarters to oversee all cases of domestic abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking throughout Bosnia, my case files started disappearing on a routine basis from the Internal Affairs office.  Files upon files of evidence we human rights officers, and even local Bosnian police, had collected never saw the light of day: victim statements, license plate numbers, identifying badges, names, tattoos, and even instant photographs.  All of it gone. Except, of course, for the copies I had in my Eddie Bauer duffle bag.                                                         —from the Prologue

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Bolkovac, a former Nebraska police officer with a specialty in forensic science, was hoping to affect change in war-devastated Bosnia when she signed on as an international police monitor at the peak of the Balkan conflict. While in Sarajevo, the divorced mother of three collected evidence, victim statements concerning the horrific situations, brutal rapes, and murders of innocent women and children she encountered. But as an employee for DynCorp, a leading military contractor in world security, she seldom saw justice done. After being promoted by the U.N. to oversee cases of domestic abuses, sexual assault, and human trafficking, Bolkovac uncovers a vast network of women and underage girls sold to brothels near military bases, with a client list of soldiers, police, and officials. When she implicates the U.N. in Bosnia for covering up for its officials selling women in prostitution, she is fired--allegedly for falsifying a time sheet, but the damage is done and her evidence is presented at a tribunal. Overall, Bolkovac's story, with the help of journalist Lynn, bristles with disturbing details and heartfelt compassion. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Synopsis" by , Assigned as a human rights investigator by DynCorp International to support the UN peacekeeping mission in Bosnia, Bolkovac uncovered the ugly truth about officers involved in human trafficking and forced prostitution. This is her story and the story of the women for whom she helped achieve justice.
