Reviews of Indefensible...
“Michael Griesbach’s Indefensible takes on one of the most high-profile cases of our time: the Making a Murderer docudrama. In searing, bare-bones prose, Griesbach, a longtime Wisconsin prosecutor and active member of the advisory board of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, cuts through the rhetoric and prejudiced presentation of the ‘documentary’ and sets the record straight. The author confirms Steven Avery’s guilt beyond any question whatsoever, refuting the biased account of so-called ‘evidence’ the docudrama has, using mimicry and sleight-of-hand editing, carefully and disingenuously spoon-fed viewers. Read this book for clear, concise, unimpeachable evidence that Steven Avery is a monster of the most despicable caliber. You won’t be signing any petitions to get this psychopath out of prison once you’ve closed the book!” —M. William Phelps, New York Times Bestselling Author & Investigative Journalist
After serving eighteen years for a crime he didn't commit, Steven Avery was freed--and filed a $36 million lawsuit against Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. But before the suit could be settled, Avery was arrested again--this time for the brutal murder of Teresa Halbach--and, though the office of a special prosecutor, convicted once more.
When the saga exploded onto the public consciousness with the airing of Making a Murderer, Michael Griesbach, a longtime prosecutor and member of Wisconsin's Innocence Project, was targeted on social media, threatened, and plagued by doubt. In this suspenseful narrative, he recounts his own re-examination of the evidence. Now as Avery's defense counsel files an appeal and prepares to do battle in the courtroom once more, Griesbach sets the record straight.
