Publisher's Summary

In The Innocent Killer, Michael Griesbach tells the story of one of the nation's most notorious wrongful convictions, that of Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who spent 18 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?

great book

This book gives a very good storyline of all that has happened in all of the case history of Avery and many of the injustices done. It leaves the decision of this last case up to the reader after all case history is brought forward.

Disappointing at BEST...

I have watched the Netflix docu-series. I've poured over the trial documents from both the Avery/Dassey cases. I was hoping that Mr Griesbach would offer a fair representation of the evidence in the Teresa Halbach murder rather than spewing the false account by his colleagues the Wisconsin State Prosecutors. I've never written a review on here or asked for a book return on Audibles satisfaction guarantee. This book was a 'novel' at best and such a disappointment! Spend your credit elsewhere.

Interesting Plot, Could have been a little better

A very interesting case! Although the story itself along with all the pieces of the puzzle are intriguing the pace of the book is rather inconsistent making it at times a frustrating read. The author beats many cases to death while doesn't go into near enough detail for others. Still a good story if you have the time.
