His scheming, self-loathing, need for attention, and gifts as a coach--all of these traits his monologue reveals in a voice as familiar as it is depraved.But Richie does confront his crimes. His networks--charity, university, church, football-obsessed community--reflect institutional and societal failures.Victim Kevin writes the unforgettable afterword.
