It's been an incredibly busy month for Great British Speakers' Maggie. With her book just launched 'Survivors: One Brave Detective's Battle to Expose the Rochdale Child Abuse Scandal' Maggie delves into the true story behind the hit BBC drama 'Three Girls.'
THE SHOCKING TRUE STORY BEHIND THE HIT TV DRAMA THREE GIRLS
When detective Maggie Oliver first discovered that children as young as 10 were being groomed, abused and trafficked for sex by gangs of men in the Rochdale area, she felt like a lonely voice calling for people to act.
Banging on closed doors, it seemed that nobody was able or willing to help her save these vulnerable girls, but she couldn't just sit back while countless lives were being destroyed forever in plain sight.
This is the first ever account from a police insider on the endemic problem of child sexual exploitation across the nation and how these cases are handled by the authorities put in place to protect us.
It tells the story of a woman brave enough to speak out and a group of girls who found the strength to fight for justice after having their lives completely shattered by their abusers; together they show in shocking detail why this must never happen again.
