My rating: 5 of 5 stars
*I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
Truly a phenomenal book. Although true crime is a genre I’m very interested in it is also one that can easily become sensationalized such that the truth is drowned beneath the “special effects” of the crime fixated upon the horror and helplessness. The premise of A False Report is to bring the reader face to face with the biggest concern about rape reports–that someone will be falsely accused. It is a concern that reflects the nature of taking cases to court which is that juries must convict beyond reasonable doubt. It is a concern that reflects the nature of interpersonal relationships often being messy, contentious and the fact that we as people often find ourselves skeptical of the experiences of others.
