Sanctity tells the stories of an ordinary man, Tommy Capps, and his extraordinary experiences as a PFC in Vietnam and a state investigator specializing in crimes against children. The vivid flashbacks of his experiences as a nineteen-year-old draftee in 1966 and his investigation of a serial rapist in the peaceful Mennonite community in the 1990s intertwine with Capps’ memories of growing up in rural Missouri in the 1940s and 1950s. The memories and flashbacks—including optimistic, yet naive, letters he sent home to his parents—allow a glimpse into how the realities and horrors of war shaped Capps into the outstanding investigator he would one day become. This memoir is captivating and intricately interwoven.
