The story, in words and pictures, of the brave and indefatigable woman journalist who exposed the crooked and criminal dealings of leading figures in her home country of Malta. Murdered by the men who could not silence her, Daphne Caruana Galizia has become a hero-figure across the world for everyone who treasures honesty, truth and justice.Daphne Caruana Galizia had a happy childhood with her family on the small island of Malta, loving books, stories and writing. As she grew older, her ambition was to become a journalist and write news stories. And when she started working for newspapers she discovered that there was much to write about in her home country, where greedy and corrupt politicians were making themselves rich rather than working for the good of their people. Fearlessly Daphne exposed criminal and dishonest activities in government through her newspaper articles and she also joined protest marches and made speeches. Her enemies responded with threats and insults and Daphne was imprisoned but she never faltered. Finally her heroic struggle led to her tragic death in a car bomb explosion in October 2017. But since then Daphne has become a hero and an inspiration for everyone, young and old, across the world, who cares about standing up for truth, honesty and justice.
