Just read the publisher's summary and Shelley's review and then get and listen to this book. It is the true story of a complete legal system and child protective system failure that is finally set straight only by the strength and love of a 7 year old girl. There are plenty of evil people including the child psychologist and the prosecutor who should have ended up in jail, but they kept their jobs. Best Intentions, which is a bad title because their intentions were evil, was first released in September of 2016, but the story is from the 1990s.
The situations in this book will anger and upset you, but you need to listen to it.

Although this book is under the mystery/legal genre, the author makes a point of saying that this is a true story. He states that names and towns have been changed but the people and story are real. Keeping this in mind this book blew me away!
This must have been a few years ago because a camera with real film was used when a single custodial father takes pictures of his 6 year daughter in the bath tub. She's playing in bubbles and calls him to see her. Wanting to show her how silly she looked and not being able to find his handheld mirror he picks up the camera.
He drops the film off at the local pharmacy and the woman developing the film twists these innocent pictures in to child pornography. What happens next is very predictable, every local law enforcement gets involved. The father is arrested and looses custody of his daughter, he goes straight to jail. The months that follow are so horrible as I'm sure any parent can imagine especially if you have ever taken a picture of your child in the buff!
Jeff Cummings gives a super narrating performance.
This is my third Joseph T. Klempner book in three days. I am sorry that Audible only has one more book by him.
This and his other books are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
