Amazon Reviews: Are Knox PR’s 1000 Dishonest Paid Reviews Losing Traction?

Posted by The TJMK Main Posters





Amazon reader reviews may or may not dictate how the sales of a book make out.

Sales of the Sollecito and Knox books have been way below expectations despite dozens of glowing reviews - and by the way numerous repeats of the hoaxes and defamations.

At the same time sales of objective books on the facts of the case and the psychologies have been meeting expectations despite the absence of advertising or a paid-for PR campaign.

Here are some of the spontaneous review for the two books “Deceit” and “Dark Matter” by Nick van der Leek and Lisa Wilson.

By atlantic 1 “atlantic1” on June 3, 2015

This is an exceptionally-well-written, complex (but lucid and fast-paced) account of the murder of Meredith Kercher (a British exchange student) in Perugia, Italy, and the unconvincing behavior and at times multiple stories of the main suspects: Amanda Knox (the American roommate), Raffaele Sollecito (Knox’s Italian boyfriend at the time of the murder), and Rudy Guede (Ivory Coast native adopted by an Italian family, currently the only one serving time in Italy for the murder).

Other characters are prominently featured, along with a lot of background information from reputable sources.

What I really liked about the book is that many links throughout the text (in the Kindle edition that I purchased) send the reader to outside documents (e.g., photographs) that would otherwise take a while to research (warning: some visuals are pretty disturbing, but one always has the option of not clicking on the link).

The book has a fluid style and is absolutely engrossing, I highly recommend it.

By Leigh on June 8, 2015

Nick has done a superb job in ‘Deceit’ of reviewing, combining, comparing, and contrasting vast amounts of information from many different sources on Meredith Kercher’s case. As someone who has followed anything and everything of substance I could find on the case since 2007—I appreciate his massive effort, and certainly agree, some amount of speculation is required. What is especially effective about Nick’s speculations is that they are based on confirmed ‘knowns’ about the case from genuine sources such as investigations, witness testimony, interviews with Meredith’s friends, housemates, and others who knew AK (rarely spell out AK’s name since I hold extreme animus for that wrongly acquitted psychopath!).

While I don’t agree with every speculation of Nick’s—I have many of my own—I do appreciate that he examines what’s real. For everyone trying to follow the case, it’s been difficult to sift through the exhaustive amount of subterfuge, deceit, and duplicity from rabid AK fan club members, a professional ‘damage-control’ PR / media manipulation machine, lazy mainstream US media lapdogs, and AK’s lying family—people and organizations who clearly would stop at nothing to defend their favorite two murderers. The worst of them always show up to deliberately hurl their vile insults and spew hatred at anyone who doesn’t howl about the great Italian conspiracy perpetrated against the murderer AK, or who don’t constantly drool like a fool over AK’s beauty and brilliance. The AK jerks are certainly out in force at trying to bring down this book—they try and destroy anyone who seeks to get the truth out about Meredith’s murder and AK’s direct involvement in her death.

By S. Gleason on June 7, 2015

Thank you for reminding people of the truth Nick. Wonderful book. A breath of fresh air. Please don’t listen to propaganda being posted here in the reviews. Listen to the abundant case evidence against all three. Justice for Meredith and her family.

By M Thomson “Elizabeth” on June 2, 2015

This book is a interesting and fast paced read. Suspicion builds naturally as the author follows the two defendants in the hours before and the murder. Their actions and changing alibis are well documented here. Amanda Knox falsely accused Patrick Lumumba in a very short time just after learning Sollecito said she went out that night. I wonder if the one star reviewers would rather you not know this.

By Margaret Ganong on May 25, 2015

The author has a good grasp of the facts and makes a case that is far more convincing than the two recently and bafflingly acquitted Knox and Sollecito have ever been able to do. Indeed, one of the most compelling reasons to read this book is for its effort to set the written accounts of Knox and Sollecito side by side, revealing the many ways they don’t add up and are at odds with one another.

By Amazon Customer on May 25, 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I cannot wait for the next one in the series. There HAD to be more to this murder ... and I am now sure that there was more than one person involved. Poor Meredith ’ s family having to live with this. I just love the narrative that makes Nick’s books SO enjoyable.

By kris arnason on May 26, 2015

Nick van der Leek has written an extremely cohesive narrative about the tragic Meredith Kercher case. The author takes you through what likely happened that horrific night, and why Amanda Knox & Raffaele Sollecito’s stories don’t add up, all the while providing the reader with hundreds and hundreds of hyperlinked images, news reports, and audio clips, etc. that have been consolidated, collected and embedded in this one narrative. Everything sourced, right at your fingertips. A must read for people like me who have followed this case from the beginning and folks just getting interested and want to learn all they can. Thanks Nick! Looking forward to more from you about this case!

By Caroline on July 5, 2015

I bought this book because of the reviews! I’ve never done that before but I’m so intrigued by the almost angry tone to all of these one star reviews. It just makes me wonder if a nerve was hit. Somebody’s hiding something maybe? Anyway, I just have to read it now. Will come back with full review when I’m done.

By Amazon Customer on June 1, 2015

Finally! An honest book of what really happened to Meredith Kercher! Can Nick interview AK & RS on TV in the USA? I am sure he would ask REAL questions!

By Jeff “jeffski” on May 26, 2015

It is a disgrace that Amazon allows these Amanda Knox trolls a platform to spread hate and abuse people simply because they write a review for a book that these people disagree with. Amazon must act on these known frauds/cyber bullies who suppress and insult/abuse people on forums/Comments section and social media.

This book is a excellent read and obviously hits a nerve with Knox’s followers as the negative comments and abuse/insults aimed at author prove. Please look beyond the rent a hate mob and read the book and come to your own conclusion.

By Columbo on May 25, 2015

This is an excellent true crime story with highly accurate and precise detail of how Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede all killed Meredith Kercher. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know the truth of this case in a very revealing and fast page turning account of what really happened in this case.

By Michela on May 30, 2015

Excellent read.

By Maria Chinnapan on May 26, 2015

A great read!, very down to earth appraisal of what may have happened. No nonsense and to the point

By MCD on May 31, 2015

Again this formidable true crime writer has come up trumps with an incredibly well researched interrogation of a crime that continues to baffle the world. The detailed sequence of events is painstakingly pieced together. I had only superficially followed this case when the news initially broke so have been fascinated by this book which has filled in many gaps and highlighted the inconsistencies in the behaviour of Amanda Knox and her boyfriend, who said what, who lied about what, etc.

In addition to the bare bones of the case, the author’s classic approach is the use true crime as a melting pot of evil and the extremes of human nature. He asks unsettling questions about human behaviour, herd mentality, apathy and our place in society - a society where a crime like this one can and does take place and despite all the investigation, the waters are still muddied in the deeper pools.

For those who appreciate that truth is stranger than fiction and like to delve deeper into these cases, the author brings it all together for you, with a dollop of enriching ‘food for thought’.

By Truth Seeker on May 26, 2015

It is the behavioural evidence which has always bothered me about this case, and it has always seemed that everything said/done by the ex defendants had to be explained away or justified. The author has cross referenced the two versions written by them in their memorials, and needless to say, there are major discrepancies.

Unless we expose the inconsistencies, then the two will have literally got away with murder. Legally this may be the case, but analysis provided by this book goes some way to keeping the memory of Meredith honoured, and ensuring that there are some still fighting for justice for her. Do buy the book- it has none of the obfuscation and image management that we have been subject to in the past years.

By Ipsos Maati on May 30, 2015

Why is Amanda Knox panicked about this book, and why did she try to have it banned?

Deceit shines light on the truth about the murder of Meredith Kercher, and the dishonest effort to free her.

Exonerated does not mean “innocent”.

By elizabeth on May 26, 2015

Deceit is a fascinating read no matter where you stand on the recent verdict. Fast paced but manages to bring a cohesive dialogue to days before and after the murder

By A. Futo “911 coincidence analyst” on May 26, 2015

Well written book by author Nick van der Leek, with all new research and links to original reporting and publicly available information about the murder Of Meredith Kercher.

Is Amanda Knox, the main suspect in the case, guilty of murdering her room mate as many believe, or was she railroaded by the prosecution, as claimed by her friends and family?

The author skilfully navigates the questions of motive, means, and evidence, starting with the premise that this is a case that begins with and is marked by many layers of deceit, as Knox first accuses an innocent man, Patrick Lumumba, then must lie and keep on lying to distance herself from the crime she implicates herself with by admitting to her presence at the scene.

Her co-accused, Raffaele Sollecito withdraws then confirm her alibi, and the other person evidence shows was involved in the sexual assault that preceded the murder, Rudy Guede, also tries to distance himself by running away then denying her involvement, then accusing the two of them in a letter to the media.

The author’s hypothesis of what happened is based on a finely rendered psychological evaluation of Amanda Knox. No matter what the final decision will be, this is a case that will be discussed for many years to come. I look forward to his next book of the series.

By Leigh on June 25, 2015

After more than 7 years of following Meredith Kercher’s murder case closely as the saga has wound through the arcane Italian justice system, I am completely convinced that AK & RS are her two other murderers who have ultimately escaped justice. Their final acquittal has not changed anything for me. Yet I’ve been asked by others who have more than a slight interest as to why is it I’m so certain, what’s your 3-minute elevator speech? Well, an elevator speech doesn’t exist, but in ‘Dark Matter’ and its prequel, ‘Deceit’ and I hope, in more follow-up e-books on this case, a reader can get as close as possible to a comprehensive full-view, what-happened, tell-me-everything explanation without having to slog through over 1,000 pages of trial documents translated from original Italian and endless arguments from two deeply entrenched opposing sides. Trying to read through it all could easily take most of an interested person’s discretionary time for a lengthy period of their lives. And who needs that, right?

What’s special about ‘Dark Matter’ is how easy it is to read, how well the authors guide readers through crucial evidence while using a technique borrowed from Socrates—keep asking yourself common sense questions as you’re reading. ‘Dark Matter’ examines the early case from a big picture view—the most prominent evidence, the investigation, what happened in days before, and after Meredith’s murder, and what was the behavior like of those near Meredith? Then go further, examine what AK & RS wrote in their own books about the murder. Do they agree with each other or give themselves away by not agreeing in crucial areas? ‘Dark Matter’ creates these scenes while assisting readers in finding their own answers.

‘Dark Matter’ examines what is important to know, then asks readers to consider: ‘does it make sense?’ or ‘were these actions meant to deceive and lead investigators astray?’ ‘is there an innocent explanation?’ ‘does unusual behavior indicate guilt, youthful carelessness, or something else?’ ‘Dark Matter’ lays out salient evidence found during investigations, and continues to encourage readers to question its importance: ‘where does this evidence naturally lead?’ ‘can we tie the evidence and the behavior together to draw conclusions, and how do we do that?’

‘Dark Matter’ is exactly how I’d want someone to guide me through an enormous case if didn’t know much about it. Don’t tell me what to think, don’t try to persuade me towards your view—show me what is important to know—and I’ll decide for myself; in this, both authors excel.

One area where I completely disagree with the authors is their, what appears to be, complete acceptance of nonsense created by AK’s professional Seattle-based propaganda machine and American author Douglas Preston—these two parties had their own reasons to intentionally malign and destroy Italian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini. Their agendas were obvious to truth seekers—one sought to do ‘damage control and create a villain to take attention away from AK,’ the other, to leverage the murder to create interest in his own book.

Unfortunately this propaganda proved to be extremely effective, and was picked up by most US media outlets that then ran with the deception. Those who know the case from the pro-justice side are keenly aware of how this vicious, deceitful campaign against the prosecutor convinced tens of millions of Americans AK was an innocent who was framed. I hope the authors make an effort to learn how completely they have been deceived and correct these mistakes in future books in this series.

Great book!! Highly recommended

By Sarah Breen on June 30, 2015

Research and writing are top notch! True investigative journalism into this controversial subject.

By Nicole church on June 27, 2015

I loved your book-you guys definitely did your research and systematically take the reader though some of the most damning evidence in this case. I was impressed at how you tied it all in with the theme of dark matter- very well done and thought provoking.

No need to apologize for your narrative;yes there are some f bombs but it made me respect you more for being authentic and your sarcasm is justified when it comes to this case. Like you both said it would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic. You do a great job calling bulls*** on both murderers using example after example from their own words(in court,interviews,diaries,etc)

I am sure this book has the murderers supporters all in a tizzy- it is easy to spot their attempts to sabotage your deservedly 5 star reviews with their 1 stars. Just look for lots of exclamation points and words in all caps then move right along to the honest reviews that will really help you decide if this book is worth reading- and it certainly is.

Looking forward to your next book and thank you for being the stars that shine light on the truth smile

By Columbo on June 26, 2015

Another really great book by Lisa Wilson and Nick van der Leek. In this easy to read and compelling book the key events, character aspects of Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito and Rudy Guede and the most significant evidence against them are all objectively weighed and analyzed. Additionally, in a very balanced view, the case for Amanda Knox as promoted by her supporters is also reviewed so readers can make up their own minds. But there is only one conclusion: all three killers murdered Meredith Kercher (RIP). I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to know even more about this case.

By kris arnason on July 5, 2015

Dark Matter is a must read for everyone wanting to know more about the murder of Meredith Kercher. Those who believed in the lies & cover up of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito’s multi million dollar PR campaigns will have their eyes opened after reading this excellent book.

By JJ “jj0388” on July 3, 2015

great book!! highly recommended

By A. Futo “911 coincidence analyst”
I read many crime books, and this is one of the really good ones on the case. Amanda Knox’s strange behavior and lies, accusing Patrick Lumumba, her relationship with Meredith, all reflected in the “Dark Matter” of her psychology.

She simply is not very believable in her book, and her media appearances have been disasters which is why she’s withdrawn in hiding. Her father hired a PR firm to manage her image, and in the process influenced many sad, gullible people who still try to negate any criticism. Even though Amanda Knox has ‘won’ her case, why are they still posting nonsensical, abusive reviews of a book they never read?

One example, but this is important to me. Her father said that Meredith gained advanced three levels in karate and would not have gone without a struggle. A testimony to her character, but a reviewer writes “that’s an orange belt, beginner’s level”. Sorry, but the people who loved her say she would have fought to the end. So why the lack of defensive wounds, if she was being restrained by only one person?

In the struggle, she managed to injure Amanda Knox, who left her blood behind in the crime scene. (A bloody nose, ear stud pulled out? Left her lamp behind in the room to assist cleaning?) She was photographed with a scrape on her neck, and the police photograph taken on arrest shows the long scratch which she only partially covered with makeup on November 02. Her adoring fans call that a “hickey”, lol. Perhaps Lisa Wilson can collect these reviews as insight into their “Dark Matter” as well?

By GH2006 on June 22, 2015

This book is a perceptive analysis of the evidence in the murder case of Meredith Kercher. Nick van der Leek and Lisa Wilson take you through the court documents, statements made by the suspects as well as the DNA evidence among other things, which reveal the many lies and obfuscations by the public relations firm hired by the defendants as well as the ob-knox-ious murder-supporters who attack anyone who writes about the truth of this crime. (Shown by the flock of 1 star comments with long venomous attacks by haters who haven’t even read the book.)

Written with the same interesting, insightful, and at times entertaining way van der Leek and Wilson hook the reader in from beginning to end. I couldn’t pull myself away from this book that Nick generously gifted to me because this is not about making a profit for them but in getting the truth out there! (In stark contrast to the defendants who made millions selling their version of the crime.) Oh! And this book also shines a light on the way Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito obscure the truth in their own books. That was very interesting as well! I also enjoyed the first book DECEIT and looking forward to the next book! TY

Awesome humdinger of a book. This book will tell you the truth!

I have finished reading Deceit. I liked the extensive online references (although a couple of them do not work) and the presentation style.

I also liked the keen but impersonal analysis. I have been interested in this case and I have generally followed this case well. All the facts presented in the book are known to the curious readers of this forum but the author has presented the “story” in a very readable, chronological form.

I believe that the courts have not yet addressed the question we all wanted to know: who stole Meredith’s rent money? Nobody?

Once the facts are all laid out on the table neatly, all the answers jump out. Nick van der Leek has done just that.

Well, mere technicalities won’t help; Amanda Knox is guilty in the people’s eye. The message is loud and clear: PR can do only this much.

This may be slightly off at a tangent, but does give an interesting view of the background in Rome at the moment…especially regarding the infiltration of organised crime and laundering.

@ “By Leigh on June 25, 2015”

I don’t know what this means but I can’t imagine having a bad word for Dr. Mignini. His professionalism and character are extraordinary.

Posted by JohnQ on 07/17/15 at 04:39 AM | #

Following on from the article that SeekingUnderstanding linked to above, some here may be interested in a new book “The Italians” by John Hooper.

Hooper is currently Italy correspondent of The Economist and Southern Europe editor of The Guardian.

The book briefly mentions the Meredith Kercher case but mainly it’s a very entertaining read about Italy and the Italians. Here are some extracts concerning the Justice system:

“Not far from Piazza Venezia lies Via Arenula. At the bottom, just by the River Tiber, stands an imposing building which a large plaque proclaims to be the ‘Ministry of Pardon and Justice’. It is no longer officially known as such, the ‘Pardon’ having been dropped from the title in 1999. But the thinking that inspired the name of the ministry lives on. To outsiders, the Italian system of criminal justice can often seem as if it was set up with no other purpose than to make sure people are let off”.

“…For a start, trials are not held on consecutive days but at leisurely intervals over a period of months or even years. At the first hearing in, say, November, the judge will discuss with the lawyers for the prosecution, the defence and other parties who may have joined themselves to the case the dates on which they can all be present. Since the lawyers are all engaged in other cases that are being held simultaneously, it is more than likely that the first convenient date will be sometime in December and that no more than a couple of hearings will be possible before the courts break for Christmas. Come the New Year, the trial will resume, usually at the rate of a hearing a week or even less. One of the effects of holding trials in this way is that it becomes progressively harder for all concerned – and particularly the lay judges – to keep a mental grip on the intricacies of the evidence…”

“In 2012 there was a backlog of 3.4 million criminal cases and 5.5 million civil ones.”

Phew, internet! (or perhaps: argh!) I’m working on a development proposition for eastern Maine, a coast with scenery like no other but economically sliding fast. To my surprise not even my cellphone connects.

The one light at the end of the tunnel is several driven marine scientists working day and night in an unfunded unit of the University of Maine, a research lab on a remote point, propagating maybe 40 species of shellfish for aquaculture.

They survive on grants. They are having some wonderful breakthroughs (eg raising clams right below salmon cages) but the lobster fishermen are reluctant to move in as they all need cashflow like yesterday and have little to invest.

Build a 7-year vision and a buy-in and execution process bottom up and a lot of money could turn up. (Often too much.) Most of the world needs to get into that mode. Happy vacations everyone. Back in NYC mid week.

@Peter

I was recently in the US to attend a conference and I visited the same places after about 20 years! I looked around and thought the same: Pittsburg and Philadelphia by night looks almost the same 20 years ago. But it is sliding fast but it does not need money, it just needs a vision. 7 year vision is not bad at all, if you can get a few good people with clear vision.

No, it is not about money. It is about people. After 20 years, I did not see the sweet smile on the people’s face. People are not happy and they are depressed. Worry is printed in bold on many faces.

Unfunded research often succeeds; money is not the key, the motivation is the key. I was told that close to a billion has been dumped in a nanocentre at the University at Albany but the labs are empty.

Machines should work; people must think.
Machines don’t; people can’t.

I would love to visit Maine. No, not for the lobsters or clams, but just to see nature.

Just extend your hand and people will succeed. That is all they need. It may even be less than 7 years for a change.

@chami

“After 20 years, I did not see the sweet smile on the people’s face. People are not happy and they are depressed. Worry is printed in bold on many faces.”

I’m sure you’re right - things are always going from bad to worse. There never was a time when this wasn’t true. What we may, finally, be on the brink of discovering is that it all begins with you and me (and hopefully others). We shouldn’t always buy the parish-pump line, the media hype, it’s created by equally frightened, uncentred people living in a constant nightmare of bad news, looming apocalypse, financial meltdowns, terrorist outrages, etc. All of which input necessarily becomes self-validating to the extent that it isn’t consciously examined.

The Meredith Kercher case has bought up a lot of this latent fear/anger. Of course justice must be done, and be seen to be done (we still live in hope, and for the record I think the deadly duo are plainly guilty ), but for a lot of people it’s also bringing up all kinds of inarticulate rage - on both the pro and anti-guilt sides - that has less to do with the case than their own personal unexamined insecurities. No doubt this post will also attract its due venom, from both sides: sometimes it’s as if the game must necessarily go on , even at the expense anyone getting to know themselves any better.

P.S. In case the grammar police are out on patrol, and desperate for a quick nick, that should be “The Meredith Kercher case has brought up”. Hands up, fair cop guv.

A wee link attached to a 35 minute podcast featuring Dr Andrew Hodges talking about his work and, in particular, the Knox case. The interviewer is terrible and doesn’t get the best out of him but parts of what he says really resonate. Other parts less so. I like how unequivocal he is in stating that Knox killed Meredith. Refreshing. I’ll reserve judgement on his theories and his book until I’ve read it but this is an interesting liste. http://t.co/5TJft3WY4Y

Posted by davidmulhern on 07/19/15 at 03:58 PM | #

Both “Deceit” by Nick van der Leek and “As Done Unto You: The Secret Confession of Amanda Knox” by Dr. Andrew Hodges objectively prove how Amanda Knox killed Meredith Kercher (RIP). I highly recommend anyone interested in this case reading them.

Both books should also be donated to the Seattle Police Department as they now have an insane psychopathic killer walking its streets. When she commits even more crimes, and she will in time, then hopefully the police will be ready to apprehend her. I just hope that no one else gets murdered by Amanda Knox, but unfortunately that could very well happen.

Dear Mr. Bowley:

I want to express my appreciation to you and Mr. Ember for your excellent and courageous work in exposing the lies of Bill Cosby. 

Please allow me to petition you for help in getting justice for Meridith Kercher.  Both websites linked below contain unfiltered information on the facts and evidence of this murder case and have all you need to report the truth.

Sincere thanks.

@ Grahame: “...consider Amanda Knox arriving in Perugia and all of a sudden being surrounded by people who had far more talent, were far more serious about education and seriously better traveled. As a result they were far better equipped to deal the outside world whereas ... Knox ... at the very least, was out of her depth”

I agree.

It’s one thing to have imagined oneself to have been a Big Fish in the Little Pond of Seattle, but quite another to be translated into a Big Pond where “at the very least”, she was not only out of her depth, but was not even a Fish at all !

In Perugia, Amanda Knox was an Alien, Alienating, and Alienated.

As you say Grahame -  she was at the very least far out of her depth.

She was so far down that her only communication-equipment was guitar-strumming, sex, drugs, and finally, what she accomplished in assembling a gang of fellow-failures and manipulating them into “teaching Meredith a lesson”.

Back home from Maine last night, to watch the 2014 mystery-thriller “Gone Girl” on cable TV (HBO).

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2267998/

Wow! If you want a big shock, this great movie sure has it and you’ll jump a foot when you see it.

Someone in that movie is hiding that they are a sociopath and in retrospect we have seen every trick in their book to hide it.

I cant say more without ruining it for you, but it seems to me very relevant here,

Maine fishermen, good people. Maine coast sounds pretty inviting right about now as we suffer grinding heat.

Last week I thought of Knox as I watched old spy thriller. The dirty double-crosser landed dead on a warehouse floor. I thought, “What if Knox lands on the floor dead one day if she put Meredith on the floor?” Except we know that our actions multiply, which means Knox might be found not lying on her back as Meredith was but flat on her face on the floor.

It might be a downstairs floor of some house not an upstairs floor, and perhaps with no clothes on at all. Would there even be a Guede to hold her as she expired (if he’s to be believed about ANYTHING, that chronic liar) Or anyone attending to staunch blood with towels, or just nobody? What might life mete out if State justice fails?
