Investigative journalist and WildBlue Press author John Ferak has done extensive work on the Steven Avery Case, which has been detailed on the Netflix original “Making a Murderer.” Check out John’s latest work on this case, published on the Post-Crescent site, below:
The Steven Avery case is not John’s only work in wrongful conviction cases. John’s latest true crime book for WildBlue Press, FAILURE OF JUSTICE: A Brutal Murder, An Obsessed Cop, Six Wrongful Convictions, gives readers an inside look at the largest wrongful conviction case in U.S. history. This case is “Making a Murderer” times six!
“How could not just one person, but six people who hardly knew each other, all be in the wrong places at the wrong times, and all get railroaded into convictions for a murder they did not commit? In John Ferak’s riveting account, FAILURE OF JUSTICE, the common denominator was an overzealous police investigation that generated false confessions and false evidence. The unbelievable story of the Beatrice Six provides a wake-up call at a time when serious wrongful convictions continue to come to light with disturbing frequency.”–Brandon L. Garrett, Justice Thurgood Marshall Distinguished Professor of Law, University of Virginia School of Law
