As Seen on Netflix’s Making a Murderer.
The story of one of the nation’s most notorious wrongful convictions, that of Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who spent eighteen years in prison for a crime he did not commit. But two years after he was exonerated of that crime and poised to reap millions in his wrongful conviction lawsuit, Steven Avery was arrested for the exceptionally brutal murder of Teresa Halbach, a freelance photographer who had gone missing several days earlier. The “Innocent Man” had turned into a cold blooded killer. Or had he? This is narrative non-fiction at its finest. A true crime thriller.
Michael Griesbach is a prosecuting attorney who played a significant role in some of the events described in this book and hopes to leave readers better informed about the inner workings of the criminal justice system and more concerned about those whose lives it deeply affects. He resides in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
