If you’re a Netflix subscriber, then you’ve surely caught wind of the buzz around their documentary series Making a Murderer. It was filmed over a decade and chronicles the conviction, subsequent release, and second conviction of Steven Avery.
The Innocent Killer was originally published by the American Bar Association. The book is currently out of stock on Amazon’s US website. Penguin Random House will release the book in the UK in print on February 1.
I’ve only read one true crime book that I can think of, but I’ve found that they can read and be written much the same as a novel. The reader just has to keep in mind that the events being described were real and happened to real people. I’d think it’d be easier to appreciate the story when this is taken into account, even if the book isn’t written as well as your favorite author’s books.
Have you seen or heard of Making a Murderer? Are you interested in this book about the entire thing?

I sure do 👍🏼
I’ve read about BTK. The serial killer from Wichita, Kansas who only got caught because he basically wanted to. He killed over like a 15 year period and then he did nothing for over a decade. Until he started contacting police. I even wrote about him in college.
I’ve heard Making a Murderer is really interesting and engrossing, but haven’t given it a try yet. I figure that would be right up your ally though!
Documentaries done right are usually done well. So I think it’ll easily be able to keep my interest. And I think the guy is an interesting case. But I’m not going to just side with the guy like everyone else has before I see for myself.
