Overview

Justice: Crimes, Trials, and Punishments by Dominick Dunne

Dominick Dunne's mesmerizing tales of justice denied and justice affirmed.

For more than two decades, Vanity Fair published Dominick Dunne’s brilliant, revelatory chronicles of the most famous crimes, trials, and punishments of our time. Whether writing of Claus von Bülow’s romp through two trials; the Los Angeles media frenzy surrounding O.J. Simpson; the death by fire of multibillionaire banker Edmond Safra; or the Greenwich, Connecticut, murder of Martha Moxley and the indictment—decades later—of Michael Skakel, Dominick Dunne tells it honestly and tells it from his unique perspective. His search for the truth is relentless.

One of the greatest storytellers. I will read anything he writes. They don't make them like him anymore.

I love this book. It is not only captivating, but it also makes you realize the crooked system and world we live in, who persecute the innocent because the have no money, and let the rich usually "get away with murder." I just can't put it down.

I enjoyed this book so well. I now have a new favorite author! Mr. Dunne gives you so much insight as to what really went on in the courtroom and private lives of these people. I so enjoyed his final chapter about September 11, it truly came from his heart.

Dominick Dunne has scribed a worthy recounting of the horrors of justice in this country today. Too many times there are stories of horrendous killings, crimes, and other injustices that cry out for action to be taken. However, too many times the punishments do not fit the crimes. Today's society has become relaxed to the notion of punishment. People commit henious crimes, only to receive light sentences because of their claims that they were 'not in their right mind', or 'they were taking drugs', or some other pitiful excuse. His story of his own daughter's murder is a classic example of how the justice system coddles these people, looking for excuses that have no right in being used as reasons for criminal activity. Psychologists and society are looking too hard at a person's childhood, drug activities, and pseudo-mental states when determining guilt or innocence in the world today. It's shocking, and this book puts the facts in your face, where they should be.

This book is well-written and a must for every fan of true crime. It's like having a long lunch with the author at one of his favorite restaurants. The first chapter covers the murder of his daughter at the hands of her boyfriend and is the best chapter in the book. It is a must for true crime buffs.

I was a fan of Dunne's tv show & this book was very interesting. Occasionally the stories jump around a little & are hard to follow but overall it was a good book. It makes me want to read more books about the OJ trial.
