Through two trials, America watched with bated breath as Juan Martinez fought relentlessly to convict Jodi Arias of murder one for viciously stabbing her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, to death. What emerged was a story wrought with sex, manipulation, and deceit that stunned the public at every turn. Arias, always playing the wronged and innocent woman, changed her story continually as her bizarre behavior surrounding the crime and its aftermath came to light. Unwavering, Arias and her defense team continued to play off the salacious details of the case until she was finally found guilty and - controversially - sentenced to life behind bars.
Now, speaking openly for the first time, prosecutor Juan Martinez will unearth new details from the investigation that were never revealed at trial, exploring key facts from the case and the pieces of evidence he chose to keep close to the vest. Throughout the trials, his bullish and unfaltering prosecution strategy was both commended and criticized, and in his audiobook, Martinez will illuminate the unique tactics he utilized in this case and how they led to a successful conviction, and - for the first time - discuss how he felt losing the death penalty sentence he'd pursued for years.
Going beyond the news reports, Martinez will explore the truth behind the multiple facades of Jodi Arias. Sparring with her from across the stand, Martinez came to know Arias like no one else could, dissecting what it took for a seemingly normal girl to become a deluded, cunning, and unrepentant murderer.
With new stories from behind the scenes of the trial and Martinez’s own take on his defendant, the book takes you inside the mind of Jodi Arias like never before and is the definitive account of the case that shocked America.

Loved this book!
Really impressed by this book. Iv watched this trial from the uk. And watched it live on stream when they sentenced Jodi. When I bought the book I was curious if it was just like the trial but there's more to it. Juan goes in much more detail from the first phone call he had to go on the case, walking into trial, speaking with witnesses, with Jodi, to the time he leaves. Brilliant book !

One of this year's most awaited true crime books
What made the experience of listening to Conviction the most enjoyable?
I followed the Jodi Arias case since I watched a 48 Hours Mystery documentary about it. It was great to hear all the stuff that went on 'behind the courtains' in preparation for the trial and Martinez's description of the case from beginning to end.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Conviction?
Martinez' description of his cross examination of Jodi Arias was good.

Never Understood His Questioning Technique Before
I watched the whole trial and really miss In Session, TruTV is just garbage programming now.
This book has a lot of neat little details about the investigation and prosecution that I never knew before. I remember watching his cross examination of Arias thinking, "What the heck is he doing?"
I didn't understand why he would suddenly drop a line of questioning to pursuit another topic. He was absolutely right about doing that so she couldn't think ahead and make up excited for everything.

Juan Martinez invested countless hours formulating a strategy and an order for witnesses, questioning, and when to reveal information. His meticulous preparation for this trial was amazing to listen to. I finished listening to this book in two days. He's a fantastic prosecutor!
