Synopsis

The definitive inside story of the case that captivated the nation. . . and the verdict that no one saw coming.

It was the trial that stunned America. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

In Imperfect Justice, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principal players in the case's drama, sheds light on those questions and much more, telling the behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and the now-infamous verdict. Complete with never-before-revealed information about the case and the accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt.

...Ashton recounts the history of the trial without much new information and his opinions, when not about the defense, are too wishy-washy to take seriously.

As enjoyable as this story is, it's also a great source to find out what the activities behind the scene of a high profile case are. Highly recommended!

Since Ashton postponed retirement for six months to finish this case, you have to put up with a little grandstanding and self-aggrandizement.
