Previously published as 'A False Report' The real-life investigation behind the forthcoming NETFLIX series: two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists uncover the story of Marie, an eighteen-year-old girl who was branded a liar after reporting her brutal rape, and the detectives who followed a twisting path to arrive at the truth. One of Stylist Magazine's 20 Must-Read Books of 2018 ***SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD*** She said she was raped. Police said she lied. On 11 August 2008, eighteen-year-old Marie reported that a masked man had broken into her home and raped her. Within days, police - and even those closest to Marie - became suspicious of her story. Confronted by inconsistencies and doubt, Marie broke down and said her story was a lie. The police convicted her of making a false report. More than two years later, Colorado detective Stacy Galbraith was assigned to a case of sexual assault. It bore an eerie resemblance to a rape that had taken place months earlier in a nearby town. Joining forces with the detective on that case, Edna Hendershot, the two soon discovered they were dealing with a serial rapist, and yet another victim. Unbelievable is a chilling tale of doubt, lies, and the hunt for justice, unveiling the disturbing reality of how sexual assault is investigated and the long history of scepticism toward its victims.

TW: sexual assault & violence.

A read that was equal parts heartbreaking & infuriating. The authors deal with this specific case but also show just how long this prejudicial view of women as innate liars when it comes to sexual assault has been entwined with the law. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Random House UK/Cornerstone/Windmill Books, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley
