Convicting Avery (Prometheus Books, 2017)

How often is Wisconsin criminal law and procedure front and center on the national stage? Probably once, and that is thanks to the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer. But of course, a ten-hour documentary about three criminal cases (two for Avery and one for Dassey) doesn't allow much time to explore the laws and procedures behind the convictions. Therefore, I wrote a book titled Convicting Avery: The Bizarre Laws and Broken System behind "Making a Murderer." It is being published by Prometheus Books and will hit the shelves on April 4, 2017. As the title makes clear, the book will expose the numerous flaws in Wisconsin's criminal justice system that contributed to the three convictions. In the meantime, if you're one of the few people in the world yet to see Making a Murderer, watch it now on Netflix. And if you're looking for up-to-the minute links, news, and commentary on Avery and Dassey, check out the Tick Tock Manitowoc group on Reddit. Finally, for my first two books, check out my amazon author page.
