The Monster of Perugia
 

The Framing of Amanda Knox

Authored by Mark C. Waterbury Ph.D.

The Monster of Perugia - The Framing of Amanda Knox, is a work of literary non-fiction that is unlike any other book about the events surrounding the murder of Meredith Kercher. By framing his narrative in terms of powerful analogies from history and literature, Dr. Waterbury illuminates the dark recesses of a gross miscarriage of justice. This is not only an informative book, it is a "wonderful, good read" in the words of one reviewer.

Douglas Preston, bestselling author of The Monster of Florence and numerous other books wrote: "The Monster of Perugia is a fascinating book... I highly recommend this well-written, clear, gripping, and ultimately infuriating book."

The Monster of Perugia demolishes the forensic evidence put forth by the prosecution, but this book is not just about forensics. Amanda and Raffaele were wrongfully convicted, but Monster of Perugia doesn't just prove their innocence. It reaches behind the façade of justice slowly taking its course to lay bare the baseless demonization, the incompetent framing, and the unconscionable incarceration of Amanda Knox by corrupt and incompetent powers within the justice system of the small city of Perugia, Italy.

"By the end, Waterbury makes us understand what it's like to be an entirely innocent victim of a corrupt system. He tells us the truth and calls us to action." Thomas Lee Wright, author.
