Review

One of the best books I've read this year. Just astounding. (Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train)

Compulsive, eloquent and profoundly troubling. One of those rare books which embrace the genuine complexity of real life. (Mark Haddon)

The Fact of a Body is excellent. So gripping and fascinating. (Sophie Hannah, author of The Carrier and The Monogram Murders)

This book is a marvel. With unflinching precision and immense compassion, Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich peels apart both a murder case and her own experience to reveal how we try to make sense of the past. The Fact of a Body is equal parts gripping and haunting and will leave you questioning whether any one story can hold the full truth

(Celeste Ng, author of the New York Times bestselling Everything I Never Told You)

The Fact of a Body is a remarkable act of witness, an anatomy of silence and the violence it abets, a book of both public and private accountings. Rejecting the false comfort of certainty, it confronts the inadequacy of all our tools for fathoming not just unforgivable crimes, but the baffling, human grace that can forgive them. This is a profound and riveting book

(Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You)

Utterly remarkable . . . It isn’t just that the writing can be beautiful (the author has a very nice way with cemeteries, which is just as well because she visits enough of them), it isn’t just her coruscating honesty, it is that she understands how very partial the stories we tell ourselves are. (David Aaronovitch The Times)

As gripping as a thriller, The Fact of a Body is a disturbing work that explores the toughest questions of law and morality without offering any easy answers. (Literary Review)

A powerful hybrid…The Fact of a Body is true crime that feels true. (Victoria Segal, The Sunday Times)

Marzano-Lesnevich is a talented writer. (William Skidelsky, The Observer)

I haven’t read anything quite like this before..we must congratulate Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. She has made us understand things we might not have understood before (William Leith The Spectator)

Book Description

The gripping true story of a young law student, an unspeakable crime and a past that refuses to stay buried.
