"In exacting detail, King and his research assistant Kelsey Decker explore the botched investigation of Michelle’s death. What stands out most about Bone Valley is King and Decker’s commitment to the story. If they have an agenda, it is to surface every aspect of Michelle Schofield’s murder. With his experience overturning wrongful convictions, King brings a seasoned eye to the case. Through meticulous investigation, King and Decker try to right one of the many wrongs enacted by a flawed system."
