Publisher's Summary

Filled with explosive new information, this is the definitive inside story of the case that captivated the nation and the verdict that no one saw coming....

It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

In Imperfect Justice, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principal players in the case's drama, sheds light on those questions and much more, telling the behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and the now-infamous verdict. Providing an inside account of the case, Ashton, a career prosecutor for the state of Florida, goes where the press and pundits have only speculated, detailing what really happened during the investigation, showing how the prosecution built their case, and explaining how a woman so shrouded in suspicion was proclaimed innocent.

Moving beyond the simple explanations, Ashton offers an in-depth look at the complex figure of Casey Anthony, a woman whose lies he spent three years trying to understand. And yet this focus on Casey came with its own risks; here he details how this widespread fixation on Casey - both in the media and in the trial - may have undermined the case itself. As everyone got caught up in the quest to understand the supposed villain, somehow the victim, Caylee, was all but forgotten - not just to the public, but more important, to the jury.

Complete with never-before-revealed information about the case and the accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt.

    Story
    "Just Okay"
    Did Jeff Ashton do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The storyteller was kind of "blah" and in my opinion the book would of been a lot better with a different reader.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt as though the story jumped around a little which made it a little hard to follow. I did find myself loosing interest often.

    "Amazing..."

    Breaks my heart what this beautiful baby experienced... Jeff does a great job in taking through the story of the trail and allowing you to connect to what they saw and experienced in the court room.

    "Sad ending of course, but well told"

    I felt this gave me some answers about the case I've always been left wondering. Though, i think i wonder more now. Appreciate the author himself reading, gave it a more personal feel.

    as a law student this was both entertaining & educational. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the legal process, not just the story

    "Answers"

    Well written and read. As an avid fan of true crime cases I have been baffled by the Casey Anthony case for years. How a mother could be so cold concerning the death of her child and a jury could find her innocent with a mountain of evidence (even circumstantial) blows my mind. This book is the closure I think Caylee deserved. Because the book was written by Jeff Ashton his biased opinion is clear, but fair (under the circumstances) to the defence team and Casey herself. Parts of the book made my anger flare towards Casey, my tears slide for Caylee, and my jaw drop at the shocking decision of the jury. Jeff Ashton left no question unanswered and no stone unturned. I have no doubt in my mind that Casey is guilty and unfortunately the justice system and the Anthony family failed Caylee despite the best effort of the prosecution team, investigators, and everyone who fought for that precious girl.

    Story
    "Meh"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The person narrating didn't seem genuine and it was from a prosecutor's point of view and comes off as if he is the bad guy or jerk


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Ashton?

    Idk I'm new to


    What character would you cut from Imperfect Justice?

    Na

    "Enjoyed listening to this and recommend"

    I followed the trial closely and joined the world in stunned horror when Casey was found not guilty. Hearing Mr. Ashton's account of the case from the prosecution's perspective was really interesting and kept my attention from beginning to end.

    "Egocentric Lawyer with Valid Case"

    although I was already familiar with this case by watching the trial on video this book offers you a glimpse into the police activity with Casey Anthony that you didn't get to see prior to the trial
