Praise

Convicting Avery is a smart, irreverent analysis of the Avery and Dassey cases from Making a Murderer. It’s a fascinating and, at times, deeply disturbing examination of the problems that plague our criminal justice system.”
 
—Lawrence White, PhD, false confession expert in Making a Murderer, and professor of psychology at Beloit College
 
“Cicchini makes his case clearly… Will engage fans of the series and readers who wonder if prosecutors really do cut corners in their campaigns against serious criminals.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Even readers unfamiliar with the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer will be intrigued by Cicchini’s insights into the inequities of the criminal justice…. Cicchini convincingly demonstrates that the Kafkaesque criminal justice in Avery’s case was not an anomaly, and his work is an accessible entree into the debate over how defendants’ rights should be protected.”
Publishers Weekly

“A revealing and fascinating read that will interest readers of true crime, criminal law, or American legal procedures… regardless of your position on Steven Avery’s guilt or innocence, the content of this book raises important concerns about a clearly broken legal system.”
New York Journal of Books

Convicting Avery is that rare book that is superbly written by an expert in criminal law, reads like a thriller, and offers much that would surprise even seasoned lawyers. I read it in one sitting.”
 
—Matthew Flynn, commercial litigation partner of Quarles and Brady, former chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, and author of Pryme Knumber

Convicting Avery is disturbing. And this is all the more reason why it is a must-read. Criminal defense lawyer Michael D. Cicchini informs, illuminates, and impels us to take a hard, clear-sighted look at our broken criminal justice system and what it means to our own threatened presumption of innocence…. Convicting Avery is highly readable and well researched, and leavened with common sense and cutting wit. It’s a galvanizing book—expertly and persuasively written. Highly recommended.”
 
—Mauricio “Mo” Hernandez, attorney
