The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology Tried to Destroy Paulette Cooper
After the publication of the aforementioned The Scandal of Scientology, the church attempted to suppress its availability to the public. In a shocking 1977 FBI raid of Los Angeles Scientology offices, documents were uncovered that exposed "Operation Freakout," the church's covert plan to have Cooper jailed or institutionalized in retaliation for her scathing criticisms. This was just one of many forms of harassment that Cooper experienced during her investigation into the church, and the brutal treatment pushed her to the brink of suicide. In his 2015 nonfiction debut, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, Tony Ortega recounts and explores the shocking attacks Paulette Cooper faced in search of the truth.
