Whistleblower is the nail-biting true story of what happens when someone with a lifelong habit of going along to get along is confronted with criminal activity she can’t ignore. Amy Joy—scientist, educator, and program administrator—was happy and comfortable conducting research while administering a $14 million program for poor families. Certainly, nothing she had previously experienced prepared her for the resistance, collusion, and retaliation she encountered when she discovered embezzlement at the University where she had worked for more than 30 years.
