They were accused of one of the most infamous murders of our time. Targeted by the media, sentenced by the courts, and wrongfully imprisoned for four excruciating years for a crime neither could fathom let alone perpetrate, Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox were the victims in a trial so bizarre it defied all reason. Now, for the first time since his acquittal, Sollecito reveals what really happened between him and his then girlfriend before, during, and after the brutal murder of Amanda’s roommate, Merdith Kercher.
Filled with family drama, wild reversals of fortune, and a blow-by-blow review of the legal catastrophe as it unfolded, this harrowing firsthand account sheds fascinating new light on one of the world’s most controversial murder cases. With unflinching honesty, Sollecito takes readers behind the scenes of the trial of the century—and inside the day-to-day hell of prison life. Finally, Sollecito talks poignantly about his first face-to-face reunion with Amanda following their release.
Emotional, disturbing, and ultimately galvanizing, this memoir is more than a true-crime story—it is a riveting account of an egregious miscarriage of justice, of public condemnation, and personal survival. Honor Bound is also, at its heart, a tragic love story about a young man who trusted his feelings, refused to give up hope, and ultimately triumphed.
