Presents the true story of two detectives who teamed up to discern the truth about a case involving a teen who was charged with falsely reporting a rape, an investigation that revealed the work of a serial rapist in multiple states.
August, 2008. Marie, a teenager, reported being raped in her Seattle apartment by a masked man. Confronted with inconsistencies, she was charged with false reporting and branded a liar. Years later Colorado detectives discovered they were dealing with a serial rapist. Miller and Armstrong follow the tale of doubt, lies, and a hunt for justice-- and the long history of skepticism toward rape victims.
