Looking for Revolution, Finding Murder: The Crimes & Transformation of Katherine Ann Power (Paragon Fall 2019)
Katherine Power’s story has all the drama of a true-crime book. This is not a true-crime book. It is a biography of a conscience. It traces an evolution from good Catholic girl, to idealistic antiwar activist, to gun-toting revolutionary, to unwitting accomplice to murder, to longtime fugitive, to voluntary but defiant prisoner, to woman transformed in the autumn of her life.

Writing is a way of arguing with ourselves, a way of keeping ourselves honest by discovering precisely what we believe
and finding out whether we are justified in believing it.
