"A False Report" er skrevet af T. Christian Miller og Ken Armstrong. Her får man den skræmmende, sande historie om to kvinders kamp for sandheden.

I 2008 bryder en maskeret mand ind i Maries hjem og voldtager hende. Da hun opsøger politiet, står det snart klart at de ikke tror på hende - de mener ikke, at detaljerne holder stik. Hun bliver overtalt til at tilstå, at hun indgav en falsk anmeldelse og hun bryder sammen. Der går mere end to år før sagen gentager sig, mange, mange kilometer væk. En ny kvinde har oplevet det samme. Heldigvis tager efterforsker Stacy Galbraith sagen alvorlig og sammen med en kollega ved navn Hendershot undersøger hun sagen.

"A False Report" af Christian Miller og Ken Armstrong er en tankevækkende og ubehagelig historie om kampen for retfædighed.

Forlagets beskrivelse It was an easy case to close - until two detectives cracked it back open... 'I pretty much read A False Report in one sitting. It is deeply disturbing but brilliant. I hope it helps with the seismic shift needed in attitudes to women who are brave enough to come forward when they have been assaulted.' Sandi ToksvigOne of Stylist Magazine's 20 Must-Read Books of 2018***SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD***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: details of the crime just didn't seem plausible. Confronted with the seeming inconsistencies, Marie broke down and said her story was a fabrication - a bid for attention. The police convicted her of making a false report. She was vilified as a liar. More than two years later, some 1,600 kilometres away, 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. Galbraith contacted the detective on that case, Edna Hendershot, and they joined forces. Galbraith and Hendershot soon realised they were dealing with a serial rapist: a man who took calculated steps to erase all physical evidence, who photographed each of his victims, threatening to release the images online if the women went to the police. After weeks of meticulous investigation, they had a name. But they also had yet another victim - a young woman whose identity was a mystery, a possible missing link. It was imperative they find her. Based on investigative files and extensive interviews with those involved, A False Report is a serpentine tale of doubt, lies and a hunt for justice. It unveils the disturbing reality of how sexual assault is investigated and the long history of scepticism towards its victims. But it is also the story of two women whose determined resolve and detective brilliance finally brought the truth to light.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse Within days, police - and even those closest to Marie - became suspicious of her story: details of the crime just didn't seem plausible.
