This book is for readers who want an authoritative and accurate account of the Keli Lane story, and for students of law and journalism interested in the interface between media and the law.

A must read!
A great read and I love the fact it was written by a barrister, with an understanding of the law and a review of the reasons behind the failed Court appeals. The book also fleshes out the holes in the Exposed documentary.
Brilliant analysis of ABC’s controversial documentary
I loved every minute of this book- such a thoughtful and articulate analysis of the ABC’s controversial documentary regarding the facts surrounding the murder of baby Tegan and the consequential trial . Davis’s writing is clear and his analysis of how the media can create fantasy out of facts makes a compelling read
