"Shortly after 12.30 p.m. on November 2, 2007, Italian police were called to the Perugia home that Meredith shared with Amanda. They found Meredith's lifeless body on the floor beneath a beige quilt. Her throat had been cut. Cash was missing. Was it a home invasion? Or something far more sinister? Amanda, along with her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, were both jailed. What role, if any, did they have in Meredith's murder? What was their relationship to Rudy Guede, an Ivory Coast drifter whose DNA was found at the scene of the crime? Author John Follain, who covered the case and trial for the London Sunday Times, conducted more than a hundred firsthand interviews with law enforcement officials and family and friends of both the victim and the accused to bring us the most balanced and exhaustively researched account of this controversial case"--P.

I got 3/4 of the way through and totally lost interest. I ended up reading from the back forward and found it was a better way to read this book. Won't be seeking out any other books by this author.

This book is right in the comments written saying that it is gripping and you are always kept guessing on whether you believe in the innocence or guilt of the parties involved. I was truly absorbed from the beginning. a great account of the story of what happened on the days leading up to the murder to the trial and beyond. great book!!
