Title Devil's Knot
Subtitle The True Story of the West Memphis Three
Author "Leveritt, Mara"
Publisher "Atria, Reprint edition"
Date 2003
Summary "The 1993 West Memphis Three murder convictions that have been the subject of two HBO documentaries are explored by Arkansas Times investigative reporter Mara Leveritt. The book systematically dissects the prosecution's case against the three teenagers convicted of the gruesome murders of three eight-year-old boys. Leveritt demonstrates from her exhaustive research that the three defendant's likely suffered a miscarriage of justice, since the murder investigation that didn't examine other known likely suspects was botched, and that the three youths convictions were based on a single confession from a retarded youth, and the defendants' alleged ties to satanic rituals. The book is an indictment by an experienced reporter of a culture and legal system that failed to protect the youths charged with the murders, or the murdered children. "
