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.

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.

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

Gus Bailey is drawn into the vortex of the O.J. Simpson trial.By day, he is a fixture at the courthouse, confidant to the Goldman and Simpson families, the lawyers, the journalists, the hangers-on, and even the judge. 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.
