The Fatal Gift of Beauty: The Trials of Amanda Knox (Broadway/Random House Group) by Nina Burleigh

[In] this powerful example of narrative non-fiction, Burleigh, who parses how the Knox trial was perhaps tainted, still presents a fair and unbiased portrait of a girl adrift in a foreign legal system and a culture rife with preconceptions about young American women. –Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
Burleigh’s propulsive narrative and the many unsettling aspects of the case make this a standout  among recent true-crime titles. –Kirkus Reviews
