    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.

    May 17, 2010: After hearing only the news provided in the US about this case, I wanted to read this book to see what another view was like. The Knox family is another family who feels they are 'entitled'. It was interesting to read about how they conducted themselves in the court room and around town. Also how their daughter acting in the court room. A lot of the information is from court documents and observations so that does lead to inference and opinion but the author does a great job of being non-biased. I would highly recommend this book.

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