Along with giving Adnan Syed a chance to argue for a new trial in the murder of Hae Min Lee, the first season of Serial is serving as a springboard for lots of new media about the case. The latest entry is a book.
According to Frisky, the alibi witness who first raised interest in the case for Sarah Koenig (and, by extension, lots of podcast listeners) is writing a book on the experience. Asia McClain’s book is called Confessions of a Serial Alibi. It’s already listed for a June 7 release on Amazon, with Post Hill Press listed as the publisher. There’s also a website.
McClain continues to influence the case beyond her podcast appearance. At a hearing in February, McClain took the information that she saw Syed at the Woodlawn library on the day of Lee’s murder before a state judge who is tasked with deciding whether Syed deserves a new trial.
