    Children's bodies aren't like automobiles with the assailant's fingerprints lingering on the wheel. The world of sexual abuse is quintessentially secret. It is the perfect crime.
    Beatrix Campbell (b. 1947), British journalist. Unofficial Secrets, ch. 2 (1988). In the book's introduction, Campbell quotes a police source on the subject: "Sexual abuse is like a corpse on a slab, saying nothing. You've got nothing to go on. It's a police officer's nightmare. You just want it to go away."

    Beatrix Campbell (b. 1947), British journalist. Unofficial Secrets, ch. 2 (1988).
