“The horror of Jodi Arias is that by murdering Travis she discovered her true self, she became the fully formed chameleon that was crawling in the shadows, and once the spotlight of the court and media fell on her, it didn’t feel like the cold lightMore“The horror of Jodi Arias is that by murdering Travis she discovered her true self, she became the fully formed chameleon that was crawling in the shadows, and once the spotlight of the court and media fell on her, it didn’t feel like the cold light of truth, but something to warm herself under...MENDACITY is a follow-up to the bestselling AUDACITY.

Beyond Jodi’s failures it deals with the failures of Juror 17 to be honest not only towards her fellow jurors, but likely, even towards herself. MENDACITY’s interrogation of Juror 17 exposes the woman who single-handedly bungled the conclusion of a 7 year case that cost $3.2 million.“One juror said #17 called the death penalty a ‘form of revenge’…”But wasn’t that Juror 17’s motive in being a holdout?

If we can’t – or won’t – do that, then these horrible crimes (and their perpetrators) are doomed to repeat themselves. What if, by paying attention, we can heal ourselves and our societies?Extract from the final chapter: The mere attention of the world – even if it’s cynical, gloating or accusatory – is satisfying [for Jodi], because it is far better than what preceded it. Rejection. Insignificance. Finitude. ...”
