London Times journalist John Follain presents
the most comprehensive account of the most publicized and
controversial trial in a decade
Shortly after 12:30pm 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.
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.
Uniquely based on four years of reporting and access to the
complete case files, and hundreds of first hand interviews,
Death in Italy takes readers on a riveting journey
behind the scenes of the investigation, as John Follain shares the
drama of the trials and appeal hearings he lived through.
Including exclusive interviews with Meredith's friends and other
key sources, Death in Italy reveals how the Italian
dream turned into a nightmare.
