From sidebars to sideshows, this is "The Casey Anthony Murder Trial.� The book is a comprehensive look at the media, judge, jury, defendant, lawyers, witnesses, and evidence, written with eyes wide open. This is what most people never see: the events that occur during a murder trial. With all the elements of an American tragedy, complete with the elevation of the mother to celebrity status, Casey Anthony stood accused of murdering her two-year-old daughter. Caylee was last seen with her mother, and the toddler�s disappearance went unreported for 31 days. A massive worldwide search ensued, before the discovery of Caylee�s remains in a murky Florida swamp six months later. In the trial, both the lawyers and witnesses seemed to cross the lines between fact and fiction during this spectacle of horrors. The media covered the arrest of the mother, and for the first time an American jury selection was televised live, from our home in Pinellas County, Florida. From jury selection to sentencing, this is a comprehensive interpretation of a first-degree murder trial and our American justice system, for good or bad. This is not a storybook, but the story of this trial, done in real time, including the observations and opinions of the two writers as the trial was ongoing.

This is the most complete real time readable trial transcript known. The book examines the murder of Caylee, the trial of her mother, and takes a hard look at the judicial system. This trial and the acquittal of her mother for the murder have resulted in strong opinions, from agreement with the verdict to venomous hatred of all involved in the case and even those who write about this trial. Read and judge for yourself.

No proceeds go to Casey Anthony/family or representatives. Although we have attempted to provide a reasonable interpretation of people and events as they happened, this book is the opinions of the authors and should be considered only as such.
