Caught in the Web
Inside the Police Hunt to Rescue Children From Online PredatorsBook - 2007
Delving into the shocking netherworld of child pornography, Julian Sher tells the dramatic story of police officers, prosecutors, and high-tech analysts worldwide who, using undercover work and computer forensics, are combatting child abuse on the Internet and fighting to protect these young victims. Granted extraordinary behind-the-scenes access, Sher takes us from FBI headquarters and the Department of Homeland Security's Cyber-Crime center to Microsoft and AOL headquarters, where efforts are underway to make the Web safer for children. Drawing on candid court confessions, interviews, and accounts of daring rescues, Sher describes the victories as well as the scars left on the victims, and the investigators who dedicate their lives to finding them. Caught in the Web is a harrowing and important exploration of the unexpected effects of the Internet.
