Shocking facts missing from the hit Netflix series Making a Murderer. In 1985, Steven Avery went to prison for the brutal sexual assault of a female jogger on the shores of Lake Michigan. Eighteen years later, DNA evidence proved his innocence. But in 2005 Avery was arrested again--this time for the murder of Teresa Halbach, a young freelance photographer. Proof that Steven Avery was rightfully convicted of murder. Prosecutor Michael Griesbach played a central role in overturning Avery's initial conviction. But he believes Avery is guilty of Teresa Halbach's murder. He also believes the producers of Making a Murderer have clouded the truth about the explosive case. With meticulous care, Griesbach reviews the evidence to set the record straight at last. "In searing, bare-bones prose, Griesbach confirms Avery's guilt. Read this book for clear, concise, unimpeachable evidence that Steven Avery is a monster." --M. William Phelps "A riveting, powerful take on the story that had all of America talking. Highly recommended." --Gregg Olsen "A masterpiece of truth-seeking; a page-turning re-examination of the facts; a must-read real-life legal thriller." --Robert K. Tanenbaum With 16 pages of dramatic photos
