Author Karen Curtis's new book 'The Accuser' tells the harrowing true story of one woman's fight to convict her abusers and the internal struggles faced after her attack

Recent release "The Accuser: The True Story of the Big Dan's Gang Rape Victim" from Newman Springs Publishing author Karen Curtis is the gripping true story of Cheryl Ann Araujo, who faced a violent sexual assault and later media scrutiny during her trial. Curtis covers the ordeal as well as the day of Araujo's death, interviewing the only two witnesses present on that day: Araujo's two daughters.

Karen Curtis, the current news director and lead news anchor for 850 WFTL in South Florida, has completed her new book "The Accuser: The True Story of the Big Dan's Gang Rape Victim": a deep dive into the events surrounding the sexual assault of Cheryl Araujo, the ensuing media frenzy surrounding the trial of her rapists, and her final days and legacy.

"Cheryl Araujo was victimized by men, the judicial system, the government, the media, and the Portuguese mob because she stood up against them all in the Big Dan's rape trials in New Bedford, Massachusetts," shares Curtis. "This is the true story about what the government and Hollywood do not want you to know regarding one young woman's fight as an accuser to tell her true story to a jury and to the world without being 'victim blamed.' The book contains never-before-published information and photographs about the life and death of Cheryl Araujo, one of the most tragic accusers and heroines in American history. Cheryl, if alive today, thirty years after her death, would not shy away from claiming #MeToo."

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Karen Curtis's riveting tale explores the backlash faced by Araujo as she bravely stood up to her attackers, as well as exploring the horrific incident of her death and the events leading up to and directly after. Readers will experience for the first time ever the true and unedited story of the courage required to withstand all that Araujo did in her life, and what her family still faces to this day.

Readers who wish to experience this mesmerizing work can purchase "The Accuser: The True Story of the Big Dan's Gang Rape Victim" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
