Publisher's Summary

On June 9, 2008, the butchered body of Travis Alexander was found in his Mesa, Arizona, home. The grisly nature of his death made instant headlines: With 29 knife wounds, his throat slit, and a gunshot to the head, Travis was left to die. The prime suspect in the case was Alexander's ex-girlfriend, the attractive and soft-spoken Jodi Arias.
Though Arias initially said that she was nowhere near the scene of crime, little about this case was as it seemed, and before long she had been caught lying to police. As the investigation progressed, her lies evolved multiple times before finally resting on an appalling claim: She had killed Travis in self-defense.
Along the way, startling details emerged about the Mormon couple's relationship, and soon graphic stories of their lurid sexual encounters and jealousy-driven blowouts revealed a dark side to their life together. These revelations launched a trial filled with sex and deception but also raised substantial questions about Arias' deceit, as people from across the country struggled to understand the bizarre world of Jodi Arias.
Now, award-winning broadcast journalist and best-selling author Jane Velez-Mitchell, a veteran of some of the most storied court cases in recent memory, goes behind the scenes of the trial and into the mind of a killer. Using insider accounts from friends who knew Travis and Jodi, Velez-Mitchell turns her sharply-focused lens on Arias and offers her seasoned perspective on the case's most pressing questions. Separating fact from fiction, she reports on the bizarre and explicit stories that have both shocked and fascinated the American public - from Jodi's romantic history before meeting Travis, to their torrid sex life together, to the complicated role their Mormon faith played in the relationships demise. With unbridled access to the evidence and the case's key players, Velez-Mitchell unearths Jodi's contentious life with those closest to her, examining the paranoid and erratic behavior behind each relationship and illustrating the disturbing pattern of a murderer in the making.
Complete with photos from the case and Jane Velez-Mitchell’s fresh insights on the crime, Exposed takes readers behind closed bedroom doors to uncover the truth behind the secret and sordid life of Jodi Arias.

What disappointed you about Exposed?

This is for surely one of the worst books I have ever bought
Any good who done it book should be neutral on delivery and let the reader decide for themselves. For the intense hatred the author feels for the defendant.. It's amazing as she has doubtless made a fortune by using Jodi's name in her book?!


What do you think your next listen will be?

Also interesting how amazon asks useless questions that doesn't even apply to the book review.


How could the performance have been better?

I would hate to see what a 13 hour book looks like physically.WOW must be as big as an encyclopedia. Way too long should have been abridged .... That is if it was actually worth buying and reading which it certainly wasn't!


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Exposed?

Again this so called author was way too biased for my taste.. I mean there are only two people that know the true facts of the case.For someone to profit from anothers misery and misfortune is as sick and sad as it gets


Any additional comments?

only gave it one star because you have to
Picture perfect by Shanna Hogan was much better
Even the youtube clips were better than this book

- XEVEN "I have over 500 books in my library"

Intriguing!

Jane Velez-Mitchell may not be my pick as a TV journalist, but she writes an amazing nonfiction book. The author represents both parties fairly, new details I had not heard following the trial were very compelling. If you were intrigued by the Jodi Arias trial, you will enjoy this read. Still sends shivers down my spine...
