    1. Having had two crime writers and lawyers debating the Steven Avery case recently on my blog (you can see that article HERE ) and having watched the controversial “Making a Murderer” documentary on Netflix, I was very interested to read this book and get another insight.It should be noted that this book concentrates for the most part on the original wrongful rape conviction and only slightly on the later murder case – so if you are hoping for more on the case featured in MAM then this will [...]


    2. Note- if you just finished Making a Murderer on Netflix and are looking for more information regarding the murder trial I DO NOT recommend this book. If you are looking for more information regarding the initial rape charge then you will be satisfied.First off, Mr Griesbach is not a writer by trade so I can forgive his boring prose, however I cannot forgive his repetition and disorganization. I guess a good lawyer needs to be repetitive to hammer home a point but when it reaches a certain point [...]


    3. I would like to thank Netgalley, Random House Uk and Michael Griesbach for my ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is a well written book about Steve Avery who had a reputation that was definitely not for being a model citizen. He had violently confronted a cops wife so it looked like the police were after him to get a conviction no matter what it took. An attempted rape which left a women badly beaten quickly led to Avery being arrested, even thought they did not have much evidence connec [...]


    4. Trying to avoid spoilers for the few who don't know the Steven Avery story. The first 75% of this book was excellent. I, along with I'm sure most others, picked it up because I was interested in the case after watching the Netflix documentary "Making a Murderer" and I wanted to know if there were more details I could glean from this telling. I was impressed with the author's fact-based play-by-play of Steven Avery's initial trial and the ensuing events. Had I stopped listening after the coverage [...]


    5. I read this book after binge watching Making A Murderer on Netflix and being unable to stop thinking about the case. This book presents some evidence and background info on Steve Avery that wasn't divulged in the documentary series. While this book shows Avery in an unfavorable light, it still highlights aspects of the case that are fishy. The author clearly believes Avery is guilty, but even with his troubled past I still feel Avery is innocent. The evidence still doesn't add up and the police [...]


    6. With no preconceived ideas about this tale (I had not seen the much talked about documentary) it sounded rather bizarre and therefore worth a read. I was not wrong, for Michael Griesbach tells the story most vividly and often from first-hand involvement.Steven Avery was a relatively small time offender until he stopped a neighbour's car and made sexually advances to her while threatening her with a gun. He was duly arrested, charged and was awaiting trial when, just six days after his wife had g [...]


    7. I would say, among all the books that followed the Netflix series 'Making a Murderer', this one is probably is the best. It is written by Michael Griesbach who was an actual prosecutor and who even met Avery on a certain occasion.Like many other viewers, I was very intrigued by the beginning of the book, and it was like the author felt confident there as well. He tells quite a lot of new details of the first crime for which Steven Avery was convicted and it simply is a very interesting read. For [...]


    8. *Disclaimer: I've been forced to edit my review of this book. I've left my initial review below for reference, but I've chosen to supersede it with an updated review.My intention was to elaborate on what I enjoyed about this book, but further research has caused me to do so for different reasons. On a number of instances, Michael Griesbach appears to have printed unfactual information. It would be speculative to say they made the information up. Perhaps his sources were wrong. Still, I see littl [...]


    9. Book: The Innocent Killer: A True Story of a Wrongful Conviction and Its Astonishing AftermathAuthor: Michael GriesbachRelease date (if applicable): PublishedSynopsis: Steven Avery was convicted of a horrible rape even though he had an alibi. An innocent man who spent 18 years in jail. for a crime he didn't commit. Two years after he was released and ready to claim millions of dollars for his false conviction, he is arrested for the brutal murder of a missing journalist. Did he do it or was he a [...]


    10. For anyone who was a fan of the Netflix series "Making a Murderer," this book is a must-read. The author is Michael Griesbach, who is a prosecuting attorney for the Manitowac County Prosecutor's Office. His name is mentioned in the MAM documentary and his firsthand knowledge is very informative and really helped answer some of the questions that I was left with upon the conclusion of Making a Murderer. The story is mostly about the Avery's first conviction and the additional information provided [...]


    11. It was really interesting to read this after watching _Making Of A Murderer_. The Netflix series covered the same ground, albeit from a perspective far more sympathetic to Steven Avery. It is also far more damning to Kratz and Lenk than this book, but the author DOES pause in his general complimentary demeanor to say that Kratz loves playing to the spotlight. (Since I find Kratz the grossest human in a long while I'd personally call that an understatement.) I struggled to finish this because by [...]

    13. Ik zag reeds "Making a Murderer" op Netflix en toen ik de kans kreeg om het boek te lezen was ik enthousiast. Ik wou namelijk meer te weten komen over dit spraakmakende programma. Helaas was ik er een beetje aan voor de moeite, het was een exacte kopie van wat ik zag.Geen aanrader dus? Ja en nee. Voor mensen die geen Netflix hebben en meewillen praten wel. Je moet echter wel door wat saai materiaal af en toe. Deel 1 was best aangenaam om lezen, maar deel 2 sprong nogal van de hak naar de tak. Be [...]


    14. This is the story of Steven Avery told by Michael Griesbach, who is a prosecuting attorney for the Manitowoc County Prosecutor’s Office. He got involved in the case when Steven was finally exonerated.There were a couple of reasons I wanted to read this book. One of them was (how could it not) the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer that I’d just finished watching. Another reason was just my general interest in true crime. Because of the release of the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer [...]


    15. Not Sure What To Make If This Book. Before I Started It, I Read Plenty Of Reviews But Then Put The Book Down Halfway Through And Watched The TV Series. It Showed Me That The Book Hadn't Gone Into As Much Detail As I Usually Like And Glossed Over Certain Aspects Of The Cases.


    16. Thank you to Michael Griesbach, Random House UK and Netgalley for the copy in return for a fair and honest review.The shocking and terrifying true story of Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man, who was found guilty of and incarcerated for the rape and brutal attack of a woman, a crime he did not commit. In an unbelievable twist, two years after he was rightly exonerated a missing woman's body was found at his home and he was found guilty of her murder. Written by prosecutor Michael Griesbach, the book [...]


    17. Anyone with a passing interest in the Internet and a Netflix subscription is familiar by now with the story of Steven Avery. Definitely a book of two halves, the first half covers his wrongful conviction for rape and is incredibly detailed to the point where large parts of court transcripts are copied ad verbatim. It makes for very dry reading at points, without any of the flourish a seasoned writer or journalist would sprinkle across the pages. The second half covers the more contentious, if po [...]


    18. 3.5 starsHuge thanks to Michael Griesbach, Random House UK, Cornerstone and NetGalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review.Having not watched Making a Murderer and not really hearing much about it I decided to request this book and was extremely happy to be approved.How someone can be sent to prison when there was no evidence to prove them guilty is unbelievable! His previous behaviour, though unpleasant and horrible, wasn't nearly as horrifically violent as the attack he was originall [...]


    19. "The Innocent Killer" is an AD's take on the exoneration of Steven Avery for rape, and his subsequent arrest for alleged murder. This is a fascinating case (see: "Making a Murderer," the Netflix series), but the book is rather dry. The majority of the text reads as a transcript of trial records, with little additional insight. The exoneration and movement to the second trial is only in the last third of the book--and given that's part of the title ("Killer"), you'd think that would have a greate [...]


    20. The Innocent Killer is an in-depth look at a very important case in Wisconsin criminal law. It is the story of violent crimes against women, police investigations and the vital importance of evidence.The author is Michael Griesbach who is a prosecutor in Wisconsin in the same country where the central crime that is featured in this book took place.Griesbach has written an incredibly detailed story that is a must-read if you are interested in crime and legal books. The book is not a quick and dir [...]


    21. The author covers the Steven Avery cases. If you have seen the Making of a Murderer you will be familiar with Avery's story. Although the author is intimately familiar with the Teresa Halbac murder trial it is not covered as comprehensively as Avery's 1985 trial where he is accused of attempted murder and sexual assault. The author, an assistant DA wrote this book I believe 2014 two years before the aforementioned movie. My two star rating was because of what has been brought out since the murde [...]


    22. The Innocent Killer was a good book to read if you haven't watched the Netflix documentary of Making a Murderer. Its a different set of biases in this one when comparing it to the documentary. I was fascinated by the turn of events in both the cases that were discussed. The writer is a lawyer who was involved in one of Steven Avery's cases and I could tell that he is a newbie. So I was left with a verdict in my mind even if the writing wasn't as polished. This is based on real events and that re [...]


    23. Having watched the obviously biased Netflix series, I appreciated reading the story through the perspective of a prosecutor. The book provided details not divulged in the series, including Avery's past criminal activity, his family's criminal activity, which not surprisingly, includes two brothers with sex offense convictions, but also some of the terrible prosecutorial and law enforcement misconduct that occurred during the investigation and prosecution of the wrongful conviction. A good read f [...]


    24. For those who have watched the Netflix Murderer special, you really won't learn anything new. What I liked how they went in deeper in the first case. But other than that, it was the same thing they keep showing everywhere. I don't regret reading it but wish there was more.


    25. Very well written analysis of the Steven Avery cases. Published over a year before the Making A Murderer documentary on Netflix.


    26. I haven’t seen the very popular Netflix series Making a Murderer but had seen it advertised quite a lot and it looked interesting, so when I can across this book, The Innocent Killer by Michael Griesbach, that details the case of Steven Avery I had to buy it. And what a read. It is a true crime story of a miscarriage of justice that had devastating consequences.Steven Avery was 23 years when arrested for the violent sexual assault of a lone female jogger and subsequently sentenced to 32 years [...]


    27. The Innocent Killer is the true story of the wrongful conviction of Steven Avery in the attempted rape/murder of Penny Beernsten in 1985. Unlike most, I have not watched the Netflix series The Making of a Killer, I have however seen several shows on the story since his conviction was thrown out in 2005. So I dont have as much insight to the case as those who have watched the Netflix series. But after seeing a few shows on it I thought it would be interesting to read the book. Here are my thought [...]


    28. Be warned, if you listen to the audiobook, it's quite apparent that the narrator was not given a crash course in how to pronounce Wisconsin's many Native American inspired city names. As a Wisconsinite, I had a hard time following portions of the audiobook because I was distracted by the pronunciation. I kept on thinking, "Where is that city? I've never heard of it," only to realize the narrator had completely boggled the name. I will give him credit that he at least pronounced Manitowoc properl [...]


    29. The book's title is misleading. I picked it up because I found Making a Murderer impossible not to watch and because I thought this book might shed additional light on the Teresa Halbach murder. Instead it's almost entirely about Steven Avery's exoneration for the rape that sent him to jail for 18 years even though he wasn't the perpetrator.The book is interesting nonetheless and definitely has me rethinking some of the impressions I came away with after watching MaM but I still can't find mysel [...]


    30. The main focus of this book is Avery's wrongful conviction for rape rather than the murder of Teresa Halbach that is covered in Making a Murderer. I found this section of the book quite interesting as most of the articles I've read about Avery focus on the murder conviction. I didn't think the book was particularly well written, some of it is quite clunky and awkward to read, but it was good to get a different perspective on the case. It takes a different angle to the documentary and is quite bi [...]
