Publisher's Summary

“Whatever you thought you believed about this infamous case, get ready to change your mind or be more convinced than ever.... Fascinating.” (New York Times best-selling author Steve Jackson)  

In 2016-17, while working for the USA Today Network’s Wisconsin Investigative Team, author John Ferak wrote dozens of articles examining the murder case again Steven Avery, who had already beat one wrongful conviction only to be charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. The case became the wildly successful Netflix Making a Murderer documentary.  

In Wrecking Crew: Demolishing the Case Against Steven Avery, Ferak lays out in exacting detail the post-conviction strategy of Kathleen Zellner, the high-profile, high-octane lawyer, to free Avery. To create this work, Zellner, perhaps America’s most successful wrongful conviction attorney, gave Ferak unique access to the exhaustive pro bono efforts she and her small suburban Chicago law firm dedicated for a man she believes to be a victim of an unscrupulous justice system in Manitowoc County.

Holy Christ.

Could this story get any more convincing? How much evidence do they need before someone grants a new trial? Ugh. So good yet so incredibly frustrating!

Great factual account of the injustice system.

Loved it. Binged listened to the book, just as I binge watched Making A Murderer. This book has many facts I have not heard about elsewhere.

Excellent book!

Unbelievable the amount of evidence questioning the wrongful convictions of Steven and Brandon! I only hope Kathleen is able to get a new trial. There is no way a jury would convict this time

wish I could give more than 5 stars.

This book is a seriously in depth account of the Steven Avery murder case. On Halloween day 2005 Teresa Holbock was murdered and the local Police department has pinned it in Steven Avery. A man who had a 36 million dollar case against the same police department for another wrongful incarceration case where he spent most of his adult life in prison for a crime he did not commit. There are several books and even a Netflix series called Making a Muderer on this case. I am not sure what exactly has drawn me to this case that I follow it closely . Maybe this poor man has spent over 35 years in prison for things he did not do or the fact that I was raised in a small town in Georgia that also had a corrupt Police Department and I saw many people take the fall for things they had no hand in. I also love true crime.

If you have heard of this case and even if you have not thus book is well worth the time to read or in case listen to this book. The book takes you through the evidence. It gives you reasons why it is believed this us a very corrupt case and also why Steven Avery is not guilty. It also points fingers at people who done the corruption, reasons why they may have done it, and even some people who should of been the true suspects.

I personally cannot wait to see this case played out the rest of the way. I honestly do not know if Steven is guilty or not but it jest seems like he is a scapegoat in a crooked town.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Tons of detailed info

I’ve watched both series of Making a Murderer and this book included details I had not previously known. It was fascinating and well written. It’s also infuriating. What a travesty of justice this entire affair has been. Kathleen Zellner is an avenging angel and my hope is that she prevails here and Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are exonerated.
