Of the many books and articles written about the Murder of Meredith Kercher this "single" gives a very good summary of the lack of evidence against Amanda Knox and her boyfriend , and why the were arraigned for trial by a prosecutor who ignored this evidence but relied on his erroneous assumptions even after the real murderer was caught, extradited,prosecuted and convicted and thus caused a sensational miscarriage of justice.

The people who wrote this book are experts in criminology and in investigating serious crime - unlike the Italian police who botched the investigation from the start either deliberately or through sheer incompetence. Rudy Guede's role was at first ignored and then minimised, yet he is the only person charged who had serious questions to answer. His shoeprints were made in Meredith's blood all over her room, his fingerprints were found in her blood and his DNA was on her clothes, her purse and inside her body - and this was not contamination or low copy number DNA. He had never before been to the flat so all evidence pointing to his presence is incriminating. He had been 'adopted' by the richest family in Perugia, he had a history of petty crime and burglary. He was arrested in Milan a few days before he killed Meredith, yet inexplicably, the Perugia police instructed Milan police to release him. Who or what were they protecting? Why were two innocent students framed when Guede was the killer? This gripping read asks the right questions and provides some of the answers.

Interesting material, well written and persuasive. I wish more people read the book to let common sense triumph over prejudice.

It is a superbyly written summary of some of the background to this case. It explains exactly who Rudy Guede is and why and how he killed Meredith alone and without any accomplaces. It should have been required reading for the jury yesterday who could not have delivered the verdict that they did.

After half a page I knew exactly where this book was going. Extremely one sided and not interested in reviewing any evidence from the other side of the argument.

This book purports to tell the 'whole truth'. Well anyone who doesn't know much about this case could be fooled, but I thought this book was a waste of time and money, especially the 'contribution' by Steve Moore. He may be an ex FBI agent, and may be red hot on forensic science, but his analysis omits several important (but inconvenient for his thesis)
details of the case.
This case has spawned a cottage industry of books, journals, memoirs.....but I wouldn't bother with this one!

I was looking for a straightforward fact filled overview of this case to find out the true facts of the Meredith Kercher murder and this book delivers exactly that

This book certainly made me look again at my judgement of this case. Until I read this I had made up my mind that the guilty verdict was the right one.

A brilliant piece of legal critical discussion featuring the reconstruction and evaluation of the case made by former FBI operatives. On top of that the legal opinion of a judge helps to clarify the formal aspects of the Italian system and to expose the shortcomings and inconsistencies of a terribly mistaken and obsessive investigation. A must-read on Meredith Kercher case but also on the preoccupying state of the Italian criminal justice.

I believe that this account is the real story. There are three victims Meredith Kercher of course, but also Amanda and Raffaele. Three young lives are being, effectively, lost. One by murder and two by lack of humility on the part of certain Italians. The fact that there is NO DNA of Amanda and Raffaele in that room is enough to ascertain innocence. The rest is just untruth piled upon untruth. I hope the Secretary of State refuses to extradite Amanda if a request is made. The book is short and to the point, but it has the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, in my opinion.
