Exclusive Offer: Preorder Adnan’s Story by Rabia Chaudry for a Never-Before-Published Letter from Adnan Syed Himself!

Adnan's Story: The Search for Truth and Justice After Serial by Rabia Chaudry sheds new light on the case that swept the nation, claiming that the hit podcast only told part of the story (Available August 9, 2016).

Preorder a copy of Adnan's Story to receive a never-before-published letter from Adnan Syed, as written to dear friend Rabia Chaudry post-conviction in 2000. 

In this personal and touching letter, Adnan shares his side of the story—all of the pain, disappointment, and the faith that he clung to as the uncertainty of sentencing loomed large.

Serial told only part of the story.

In early 2000, Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life plus thirty years for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, a high school senior in Baltimore, Maryland. Syed has maintained his innocence, and Rabia Chaudry, a family friend, has always believed him. By 2013, after almost all appeals had been exhausted, Rabia contacted Sarah Koenig, a producer at This American Life, in hopes of finding a journalist who could shed light on Adnan’s story. In 2014, Koenig's investigation turned into Serial, a Peabody Award-winning podcast with more than 500 million international listeners.

But Serial did not tell the whole story. In this compelling narrative, Rabia Chaudry presents new key evidence that she maintains dismantles the State's case: a potential new suspect, forensics indicating Hae was killed and kept somewhere for almost half a day, and documentation withheld by the State that destroys the cell phone evidence—among many other points—and she shows how fans of Serial joined a crowd-sourced investigation into a case riddled with errors and strange twists. Adnan's Story also shares Adnan’s life in prison, and weaves in his personal reflections, including never-before-seen letters. Chaudry, who is committed to exonerating Adnan, makes it clear that justice is yet to be achieved in this much examined case.
