Decades before the HBO documentary Going Clear revealed the inner workings of Scientology, a 29-year-old freelance magazine writer wrote the first ever expose on the secretive religion.

Back in 1971, Paulette Cooper wrote "Scandal of Scientology," a book she says made her the focus of the organization's vengeful retribution.

Cooper says she was targeted by a rogue Scientology unit that launched "Operation Freakout" in an attempt to destroy the young woman they codenamed "Miss Lovely."
