  1. "When there is a heartbeat, there is hope."
    —Alec Klein, author of Aftermath: When It Felt Like Life Was Over

    Dear Edirin and Business of Christ,

    Alec Klein, former reporter at the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, spent much of his career investigating wrongful convictions and excessive sentences.

    Suddenly, he found himself on the other side, falsely accused himself. In a coordinated media attack, he was accused of misconduct as a professor at a top U.S. university, and in a rush to judgment, before he had a chance to defend himself, his life was destroyed. What happens when you have little hope? In the aftermath, Alec gravitated to the unlikeliest of places, among the unlikeliest of people, doing the unlikeliest of things. Aftermath (May 22, Republic Book Publishers) is a first-person true story about faith, forgiveness and redemption.

    Klein’s story is a welcome respite from the depressing daily headlines. His book covers a wide range of topics including social justice, wrongful convictions, “cancel culture,” #MeToo, as well as unanticipated epiphanies (reminiscent of C.S. Lewis’s Surprised by Joy).

    Thanks for taking a look.

    BIO: Alec Klein is a bestselling author and award-winning journalist formerly of the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal. His groundbreaking investigations have uncovered a wide array of wrongdoing and set free several prisoners who were wrongfully convicted of murder and accused of other crimes. He also has helped dozens of excessively sentenced women gain their freedom through parole and commutation.

    “This moving and compelling account of how it feels to be victimized by abusers of the ‘#me too movement’ demonstrates why it is important for ALL victims to speak out—victims of sexual abuse as well as victims of false accusations of sexual abuse.”
    —Alan Dershowitz, author of “Guilt by Accusation: The Challenge of Proving Innocence in the Age of #MeToo”

    “Alec Klein’s story of how he was accused of sexual harassment and lost his job, reputation, and family is a troublingly familiar story. Many people, both women and men, similarly ‘lose all’ when they are accused of being politically incorrect in any way. What’s different about Alec Klein’s tale is what he did when he hit bottom. Based on his previous expertise, and on a pro bono basis, he began the profoundly religious and redemptive work of helping to free women in prison in Oklahoma. This is a very powerful, unusual, and endearing story.”
    —Dr. Phyllis Chesler, author of “Women and Madness” and “A Politically Incorrect Feminist”

    “Heartbreaking. Poignant. Enlightening and Healing. What happens when a person's is destroyed by a vindictive false allegation, losing nearly everything built over a lifetime? Is there a way forward? Alec Klein's soul-searching book, ‘Aftermath’ takes its reader on a roller coaster ride to the depths of shattering despair and then rises like a Phoenix through faith and determination to a new beginning. This book is a must-read for anyone who has endured the nightmare of a false allegation, or knows someone who has.”
    —Shelley S. Dempsey, Esq., board director, Families Advocating for Campus Equality
    “Reading Aftermath is a powerful and emotional experience. Alec Klein’s story made me cry and then smile as it becomes clear that we all can have grace and opportunities to help others and, in the process, feel the hand of God in our lives.”
    —John LeBoutillier, former Congressman and bestselling author
