    " This is a fictional take on the OJ Simpson trial- just amazing. Dunne covered the trial for Vanity Fair and puts himself in this story as a character. The ending shocked the hell out of me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Pooch | 2/18/2014

    " Heart- breaking. Gut-wrenching and maddening. A well written account of the OJ Simpson travesty by an author who has lived through a similar travesty of justice involving his own daughter. "
