It seems like the whole world is talking about Steven Avery and the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer. If you’re anything like me, you binge watched it in one day and felt a vast emptiness inside as the last credits rolled. It’s a great thing we have books to help fill that void! Below are a few of my suggestions…

This is a True Crime book about Avery’s case, written by a Manitowoc county prosecuter.

The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town by John Grisham
