Book Review: Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery and What "Making A Murderer" Gets Wrong

First, I must admit, I do have a bit of a fascination with this case. I feel so badly for Brendan.  I also feel badly for Avery. Of course, I also feel terribly bad for the family of Teresa Halbach.
I honestly feel that maybe having Avery in jail for all that time created a man who didn't exist before. We all know that jail can harden and change a person, many times not for the better. I personally do not like the attitude of Kratz and basically feel he doesn't have much new to say here. Of course, the show, Making a Murderer, can't get it all right. None of us were there when Halbach was killed so none of us will ever know the complete truth of what happened. I do feel terrible that a life was lost and I hope that her family is able to find justice and peace. I am amazed at how many of these cases are mishandled and it makes me have a huge sense of mistrust for our justice system.

* Thank you to NetGalley, Ken Kratz, and BenBella Books, for allowing me to read a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
