It truly was a detailed look at the defense of O.J. and inside his team. It detailed how they twisted the facts to distort and distract the jurorrs, the black race, and an entire nation into thinking O.J. deserved a "not guilty" verdict. Shame on the entire defense team! Especially shame on Johnnie Cochran, but also the jurors. As for the book, it was well wriitten but left a few unanswered questions.

I didn't want the book to end, & it was long. This is an extremely interesting view from the inner track. It's very hilarious in parts. I thought I knew all there was to know about the O. J. Simpson murder case, but this added a lot. I thank the people involved.
