Crime, even the darkest and most unspeakable acts, can happen to any one of us, and as Alexandria pores over the facts of the murder, she finds herself thrust into the complicated narrative of Ricky's childhood. And by examining minute details of Ricky's case, she is forced to face her own story, to unearth long-buried family secrets, to reckon with how her own past colours her view of his crime.
As enthralling as true-crime classics such as In Cold Blood and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and broadcast phenomena such as Making a Murderer and Serial, The Fact of a Body is a groundbreaking, heart-stopping investigation into how the law is personal, composed of individual stories and proof that arriving at the truth is more complicated and powerful than we could ever imagine.

Don't get it for the true crime/justice element
Beware: this is at least as much this woman's outpourings about childhood events as it is about the case. I'm not sure the publicity makes that clear. If you want the author's potted autobiography, great; it's for you. I grew bored of her self-absorption halfway through and had to return book.
