I pretty much read A FALSE REPORT in one sitting. It is deeply
disturbing but brilliant. I hope it helps with the seismic
shift needed in attitudes to women who are brave enough to come
forward when they have been assaulted. -- Sandi Toksvig
A deep, disturbing, compelling, important book. A False Report digs into timeless issues - crime, victimhood, honesty, sexism - which have never been more timely. It is also a fascinating, sharply written story that will twist and surprise you. -- Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief
Incredibly compelling true-crime... Miller and Armstrong have forensically examined the case of a serial rapist, giving the victims a voice while underlining the importance of collaborative police work and believing testimonies - especially in circumstances of sexual violence. * A Stylist Spring Pick *
The collection of interviews and research is remarkable. * TLS *
A riveting and disturbing true-crime story that reflects the enduring atrocity of rape in America. * Kirkus *
