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

I have to admit I did not know about Steven Avery until the Netflix series "Making a Murderer". There are several books now available about his case(s).

Of the books I have read, Indefensible comes closest to how I interpret the actions of Mr Avery and the law enforcement officials involved. The author delved into Mr Avery's past including several brushes with the law long before the Theresa Hallbach murder.

What I enjoyed most about this book is that it did not get bogged down in the repeat of trial transcripts. The reader can look up that information on their own.

The saddest part of the book are the interviews recorded with Steven Avery's extended family. The young people (nieces and nephews) that came in contact with him and had their lives changed forever. Particularly compelling is the story of Avery's second cousin, Sandra Morris. She and her husband(a deputy) lived down the road from Steven Avery and her story is absolutely chilling about Avery watching her (and worse) as she drove to work in the morning.
