Adnan’s Story by Rabia Chaudry.

This month The Off-Topic Book Club do a podcast about a case made famous by a podcast.

Janet, Cheree, Kate and Rosemarie discuss  Adnan’s Story, a non fiction book covering  the murder case of Hae Min Lee, first made famous by the Serial podcast.  Sixteen years ago Adnan Syed was sentenced to life plus thirty years  for the murder of high school senior Hae but he has maintained his innocence. On June 30 2016 a judge granted Adnan a new trial as a result of a Post-Conviction Relief Hearing in February 2016. The court ruled in favour of Adnan on a singular issue – that his attorney had failed in her duty to properly cross-examine an expert in his  trial. The book, written by Adnan’s family friend Rabia Chaudry, reexamines the details of the case and offers more details of Adnan’s life before his conviction.
