Description
This is a recounting of the Meredith Kercher case, from her murder to the acquittal of Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox. Shortly after 12:30 p.m. on November 2, 2007, Italian police were called to the Perugia home of twenty-one-year-old British student Meredith Kercher. They found her body on the floor under a beige quilt. Her throat had been cut. Based on four years of reporting and access to the complete case files, and hundreds of first hand interviews, this book takes readers on a journey behind the scenes of the investigation, with the author, the drama of the trials and appeal hearings he lived through. Four days later, the prosecutor jailed Meredith's roommate, American student Amanda Knox, and Raffaele Sollecito, her Italian boyfriend. He also jailed Rudy Guede, an Ivory Coast drifter. Four years later Knox and Sollecito were acquitted amid chaotic scenes in front of the world's media. Including exclusive interviews with Meredith's friends and other key sources, this book reveals how the Italian dream turned into a nightmare.
