If you love gossip, you'll love this. With the obvious exception of the ending of this "novel," I doubt very much else is fiction. The name-dropping gets to the point of being laugh-out-loud funny ("How many names can I get into just one sentence?"), but the behind-the-scenes tales of the OJ trial are juicy.

An account of the OJ Simpson trial; written with a sharp eye and a quick tongue. Dominick Dunne puts it all together into a non-stop reading.

I am a huge Dunne fan . . . and even after all these years, the OJ trial was still interesting to read about. It's just amazing the name-dropping and the lives of the priviledged and the odd coincidences this man gets into. Fascinating - great "beach read" book.

It reads like the columns that Dunne wrote for Vanity Fair, which I enjoyed. A dishy fun, barely fictionalized, story of an infamous murder trial -- but with a surprising twist ending.

By night, he is courted by the most celebrated hosts in town. Bailey is one of Dominick Dunne's most familiar characters, now caught up in a national obsession with the Trial of the Century.

Great book. Pulls you into the OJ trial. You don't realize until the end that the book is fiction.

Wow! I loved this book! To be honest, I didn't read anything about the book, so I didn't even realize it was going to be about the OJ trial. Once I realized it, I very nearly yanked the tape out - that trial already took enough of my time years ago LOL. But Dunne's style caught my interested, so I kept listening... and listening... then WHAP!! The ending hit me like a ton of bricks. Out of nowhere! There was no way I saw that twist coming.
