Cara Hunter—a crime novelist who has made quite the name for herself in the UK—makes her American debut with a mystery that immerses readers into the case like nothing else before. Written in the style of a teleplay for a true crime documentary series, readers are given the evidence in the form of images, text messages, emails, maps, newspaper clippings, social media discussions, testimonies, and witness interviews. Six experts in the docuseries are trying to piece together the truth, but can you get there first?

The seven-episode series Infamous has just hit streaming services, and aims to re-examine the case through the lens of advancements in forensics. There are shocking discoveries to be found, and some people on the case may know more than they're pretending…
