Murder in Italy: The Shocking Slaying of a British Student, the Accused American Girl, and an International Scandal by Candace Dempsey
Murder in Italy: The Shocking Slaying of a British Student, the Accused American Girl, and an International Scandal

True Crime Addict, May 24, 2010

This is a detailed, well-organized and nicely written true crime book by an Italian-American journalist who comes from Knox's hometown of Seattle and witnessed many of the events that played out there and in Perugia. According to the acknowledgement's page, she has relatives in several parts of Italy and has been going there for many years and numerous times during the writing of this book. She is described as an award-winning journalist who covered the case from the very beginning on her seattle pi blog and appeared on CNN. Her book captures the events through court transcripts, autopsy reports and many other documents and interviews with prosecutors as well as representatives for the defense. We also read much from the well-known Italian reporters whom Ms. Dempsey got to know in Perugia. I am still not sure how I feel about Amanda Knox. She will always be an enigma. I like the fact that this author left room for doubt and tried very hard to present both the American and the Italian point of view on the case.
