Previously published as 'A False Report'The real-life investigation behind the forthcoming NETFLIX series: two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists uncover the story of Marie, an eighteen-year-old girl who was branded a liar after reporting her brutal rape, and the detectives who followed a twisting path to arrive at the truth. One of Stylist Magazine's 20 Must-Read Books of 2018***SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLD DAGGER AWARD***She said she was raped. Police said she lied.
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. Confronted by inconsistencies and doubt, Marie broke down and said her story was a lie.
The police convicted her of making a false report. More than two years later, Colorado 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.
Joining forces with the detective on that case, Edna Hendershot, the two soon discovered they were dealing with a serial rapist, and yet another victim. Unbelievable is a chilling tale of doubt, lies, and the hunt for justice, unveiling the disturbing reality of how sexual assault is investigated and the long history of scepticism toward its victims.
