"A book of love and passion. The portraits of slain journalists who reported from the world’s most dangerous places are unquestionably tragic, but this book is uplifting and even inspiring. Through his meticulous reporting and his compassionate storytelling, Gould performs a small miracle, a literary resurrection, allowing journalists so cruelly killed to tell their own stories completely and honestly. In an age when journalism is threatened by economic collapse and deep public cynicism, Gould’s book reminds us that journalism can be beautiful and meaningful and that its power to combat injustice so great that some journalists around the world are willing to give their lives to tell the truth.”
--Joel Simon, Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists
"Terry Gould has made all of [these journalists] more than mere statistics. By digging so deeply into their lives, he has not only memorialized them but has helped us understand their martyrdom." --Columbia Journalism Review
"Terry Gould has done an enormous service to journalists everywhere with this macabre collection of murders most foul.... Fathoms why these individuals came to be martyrs."
From everyone at Left Right Minds - congratulations, Terry!
