Raffaele and Amanda spent four years in an Italian jail for the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher, before each being acquitted in October 2011. Now Raffaele is revealing his side of the story in a new book.

Raffaele Sollecito’s relationship with Amanda Knox may have started as an Italian love story, but quickly turned into a thriller romance. Each was accused in the murder of Amanda’s roommate Meredith Kercher in 2007, and their lives forever changed.

Raffaele tells all in his new memoir Honor Bound: My Journey To Hell And Back With Amanda Knox, out Sept. 18. The murder of the British exchange student became worldwide news, and the odd behavior of Raffaele, 28, and Amanda, 25, directly after the murder brought them great scrutiny from both the police and the media. While people mourned for Meredith, 21, Amanda remained cold and distant.

To make matters worse to prove Amanda’s innocence, she and her boyfriend-at-the-time Raffaele engaged in “bizarre behavior,” leading many to speculate they were guilty of the heinous crime.

“Foxy Knoxy,” as the media dubbed Amanda, was spotted shopping for underwear and doing cartwheels in front of investigators. She also sat on Raffaele’s lap during the couple’s interrogation.

Amanda and Raffaele were acquitted of the murder charges in 2011. Amanda returned to her home in Seattle, Wash. Raffaele’s residency is unknown.

Amanda will also release a book next spring about her own experiences for a reported deal of $4 million.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Honor Bound be on your fall reading list?

I used to be obsessed with that case, trying to figure out what exactly happened. All I know is that Fox had something to do with it… people can say no DNA then no proof etc. but her behavior, reaction, lies, accusing innocent people of murder, clean up after murder, staged break in. who does that? what innocent person would do that?

I remember reading the press reports as the case was evolving. I remember thinking to myself that she seemed culpable. I have the feeling that she got away with murder.
