In early 2000, Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, a high school senior in Baltimore, Maryland. Syed has maintained his innocence, and Rabia Chaudry, a family friend, has always believed him. By 2013, contacted Sarah Koenig, a producer at This American Life. In 2014, Koenig's investigation turned into Serial, a Peabody Award-winning podcast with more than 500 million international listeners. But Serial did not tell the whole story.

I am one of those people that was sucked in by Serial, listened to it multiple times and then listened to everything Adnan related. Even after following along with Serial, Undisclosed, the Truth & Justice Podcast and Twitter, there is still so much to experience in this book. You get a real understanding of how devastating this was for everyone. You will get a behind-the-scene perspective of the podcasts. I could not stop listening. Rabia narrates and that is the cherry on top of the sundae.
