(Paul Pflueger and his target, Paulette Cooper)

When we were doing the reporting for our 2015 book The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper, we did our best to find Scientologists who might finally come forward and talk about what they put Paulette through from 1969 to 1985 during one of the most frightening campaigns of "Fair Game" harassment of a journalist the church ever unleashed.

Thanks to help from various sources, we did manage to find some people who took part in Paulette's surveillance back in the day. In particular, we had the great experience of getting to know the lovely and gracious Len Zinberg, who did some volunteering for Scientology's Guardian's Office in the early 1970s in New York. He told us about being assigned to watch Paulette's comings and goings at her apartment, and as we were researching our book he reached out to Paulette to apologize for what he had done.
