The Staircase

Return
Former marine turned successful writer, Michael Peterson, has his life turned upside down on the night of 9 December 2001 when he is accused of murdering his wife, found dead at their home. This story spans more than 15 years, charting the battle of investigators, the police, prosecutors, the judge, and it enables us to look at the painstaking work of the defence attorney in preparation for the first trial. Despite a lack of motive and hard evidence, the verdict seems sealed. But unexpected developments lead this plot beyond anything anyone could have imagined…
