He was the first investigator on the bloody scene. He was the first guy to take the fall. Now, he is the first to tell the whole truth—and nothing but the truth.

For O. J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop had to be destroyed—that was the strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson’s guilt grew, so did outrage about the scapegoating of Detective Mark Fuhrman. Fuhrman knew how the police mishandled and overlooked key evidence. He knew where the prosecutors went wrong. Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in this damning exposé.

In this blockbuster book, Fuhrman takes listeners on a detective’s journey through the crucial first twenty-four hours of the investigation. We uncover not only the bloody glove but explosive new evidence recorded by Fuhrman and his partner at the scene but astonishingly never presented at the trial. Fuhrman’s own hand-drawn maps of the crime scene and his reconstruction of the murders leave no doubt about what really happened at South Bundy Drive on June 12, 1994. These new revelations about the incompetence and corruption that pervaded the “trial of the century” set the record straight.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A badly needed, if one-sided retrospective on how [Fuhrman’s] role unfolded. It is not necessary to absolve him to know that something was lost when [he] fell out of the case.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Furhman’s book documents one of many fallibilities in the best justice system in the world, and for that reason alone, is worth a look.”

    Examiner

  • “The main lesson of this book is an organizational one worth remembering: it doesn’t matter if the grunts do a good job, if the big-shots don’t follow up.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

    " Investigators first hand account of discovering evidence at the murder scene and the residence of O.J. Simpson. Evidence found proved that Simpson committed the brutal murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 2/3/2014

    " Not a work of great literature, but if half of what he writes is true this case was a massive miscarriage of justice. I thought OJ was guilty, now I'm absolutely sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 1/26/2014

    " This was a fascinating book from an insider's point of view. The media really savaged this guy! The details of all the evidence in this case is just chilling - OJ really did get away with murder! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kate Tsu | 1/15/2014

    " ugh, Fuhrman is a pig. Makes the LAPD look like idiots. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Delphine | 1/3/2014

    " Interesting point of view of one of the actors (Mark Fuhrman himself) on the OJ Simpson trial. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Bonstein | 12/25/2013

    " This book infuriates me. How OJ could be found innocent is beyond me. This book is so fascinating. Great writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/24/2013

    " Very well written. Read it in two days. Fuhrman is very defensive about how his reputation and career were ruined by this trial experience. But, he is a brilliant detective and very good writer. I thought the book was entirely credible. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 12/8/2013

    " I really really don't like Mark Fuhrman. Bought on remainder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Bedee | 5/18/2013

    " What I found most compelling about this book were the transcripts from the initial interrogations of O.J. Simpson. The cops had him close to breaking and then let up. It's evident even in writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl Schibley | 3/20/2013

    " I enjoy this one. I liked his perspective on the O.J. trial - he was made to look like a scapegoat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellie Revert | 10/25/2012

    " This is a very good book, but more technical than I needed, I guess. Think the one comment below that Ito should have recused himself, as his wife was Furhman's boss, makes a lot of sense. There wasn't much to admire in the way Ito handled this case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky Clark | 10/11/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie Zubrick | 11/7/2010

    " I couldn't get past the first few chapters of Furman's finger-pointing and blame-throwing. Yes, you got screwed. Yes, mistakes were made. But I was looking for a story about the infamous murder case, not a "hey, it wasn't my fault" tale. More fact, less opinion, please. "
