The shocking tale told in How I Helped O. J. Get Away With Murder is unlike anything you've read before; it isn't Mike Gilbert's "version" of what happened—it's the unvarnished truth: the truth about O. J., the murders, and the infamous trial. Not as Gilbert imagined or would like it to be, but how it actually was. Gilbert

Overview

The shocking tale told in How I Helped O. J. Get Away With Murder is unlike anything you've read before; it isn't Mike Gilbert's "version" of what happened—it's the unvarnished truth: the truth about O. J., the murders, and the infamous trial. Not as Gilbert imagined or would like it to be, but how it actually was. Gilbert doesn't spare anyone, not even himself—he helped deceive the jury and feels deeply responsible for the "Not Guilty" verdict.

So why is Gilbert speaking out now? Has he gone from sinner to saint? Is he making a play for sympathy or looking to make a quick buck? No. (Proceeds from this book are going to March of Dimes and other selected charities.) Gilbert has written this book because he regrets what he did for his adored childhood idol. He can no longer find any excuse for how he has shielded O. J. Simpson, and he is determined to tell the full truth, including:

—O. J.'s late-night confession to Gilbert

—How Gilbert was responsible for O. J.'s hand not fitting the murder glove

—Why O. J. murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman (it was more than jealousy)

—Why Gilbert defended O. J. for so long—and what finally convinced him he could do so no longer

— How O. J. ignored his financial obligations to the Goldman family and milked the tabloids for money

—The real reason why an armed O. J. burst in on the memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas (Gilbert had what O. J. was looking for)

Told with searing candor, no one comes out of this book with his reputation intact—including Gilbert's own. But he casts a glaring light on how celebrity can corrupt, how power can mislead, and how friendship and loyalty can be perverted. His book is meant to set the record straight, to lay to rest the ghosts of that dreadful night that have haunted him ever since, and to now play what little part he can to forward the process of justice.

I am an avid reader for murder stories and books on real life events in crime. I am also a picky reader, but when i got this book i could NOT put it down. I love the depth the author goes into and the details of what is going on. Along with the lists of evidence. After i read the book i gave it to 5 co workers and they all enjoyed and was glued to the pages of this event.

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of detail the author went into. It is amazing what people will do to protect someone they know is guilty just because they want money!!

aside from it being patently offensive that one of o.j.'s cronies is making money off this (i bought a used copy), this is actually a fairly interesting look at the toll it takes being an apologist for an unrepentant murderer. mike gilbert is a pathetic soul, who stayed with o.j. because he could still make money by signing him up for autograph conventions, but he's finally realized that all the money in the world can't help you escape a guilty conscience.

this book answers all the questions you may have had after the devastating not guilty verdict at the o.j. murder trial. It also gives insight into the person he was and is now. Great read, only took 1 day. Very well written.
