    Synopsis

    Despite all the airtime devoted to Amanda Knox, it’s still hard to reconcile the fresh-faced honor student from Seattle with the sexually rapacious killer convicted of the November 2007 murder of her British roommate. Few Americans have heard all of the powerful evidence that convinced a jury that Knox was one of three people to sexually assault Meredith Kercher, brutalize her body, and cut her throat. In Angel Face, Rome-based Daily Beast senior writer Barbie Latza Nadeau – who cultivated personal relationships with the key figures in both the prosecution and the defense – describes how the Knox family’s heavy-handed efforts to control media coverage distorted the facts, inflamed an American audience, and painted an offensive, inaccurate picture of Italy’s justice system. An eye-opener for any parent considering sending a child away to study, Angel Face reveals what really went on in this incomprehensible crime.

    April 10, 2010: The author's nonexistant references and index say volumes about the quality of the writing.

    January 15, 2012: This is a poorly researched and written book that is full of inaccuracies about this case. The overview says the book "reveals what really went on in this incomprehensible crime". The fact is the appeal judge, Claudio Hellmann, in his motivation report (written after he sets the defendant free) disputes what this author claims as "fact" in this book.

    The overview also claims that the Knox family "distorted the facts". The reality is the author seriously distorts the facts in this book. The appeal judge's ruling clearly shows that.

    I'd recommend anyone interested in the true facts of this case NOT read this book.
