8/5/22 8:40 We learned during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings about the rite of passage known as Beach Week, where graduating seniors hit up beaches for parties both public and private. How could money and privilege affect the outcome of a tragedy after a group of friends goes into the ocean, but one never comes out again? What if one of those friends became a mom, and then the tragedy repeated itself 25 years later with one of her daughter’s friends? That’s the scenario former police reporter turned bestselling author Aggie Thompson laid out in her newest book, ALL THE DIRTY SECRETS. Aggie joined the WEOL Morning Show to talk about using her background in criminal justice to start a writing career and her inspiration for her latest work.
