Review:

Evidence Dismissed, The Inside Story of the Police Investigation of O.J. Simpson is one of those as-told-to books, the tellers being Detective Tom Lange and Detective Philip Vannatter, who led the investigation into the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Here, free from the constraints of courtroom procedure, cross-examination, and public relations spin, they present their side of the story, including much evidence that never saw its day in court.

Detectives Lange and Vannatter took a lot of flak during the first Simpson trial and in the barrage of books that followed. In Evidence Dismissed they have their revenge by pointing out errors in the prosecution's case and getting in a few digs at the defense attorneys. As told to Dan E. Moldea, a veteran crime reporter, this latest insider story sheds some new light on the behind-the-scenes activity surrounding the most recent "Trial of the Century."

From the Publisher:

"You were honest with me right from the beginning, just saying you're doing your job. I know you do a good job." - O.J. Simpson to Tom Lange, via cellular phone during the Bronco chase

In this astonishing book, veteran LAPD detectives Tom Lange and Philip Vannatter -- the leaders of the investigation into the Brown/Goldman double murder -- fully chronicle the police case that brought O.J. Simpson to trial. Here for the first time are the plain facts of the sensational case, recounted in the kind of riveting detail only the detectives on the scene could deliver. And this is also the disturbing story of how solid, professional police work became Evidence Dismissed.

Drawing from personal journals, police logs, and audiotapes, Lange and Vannatter reconstruct the entire five-day investigation, beginning with the 3 am calls on June 13, 1994, that summoned them to the crime scene. Scarcely four hours later, in the early dawn light, they made a shocking discovery that would soon reverberate around the world: a trail of blood leading literally to Simpson's front door. Now, this insider account brings all aspects of the case into compelling focus, revealing:
What precisely was discovered at Simpson's Rockingham estate, why it was declared a crime scene, and what role Mark Fuhrman really played in the investigation
Their struggle to protect the Bundy crime scene, keep the media at bay, and ensure that the coroner -- who outranked them -- was as thorough as possible
A transcript of their bizarre interview with Simpson the day after the murders
How Marcia Clark became the D.A. assigned to the case, and the tension it created
A transcript of Lange's pleading call to Simpson's cellular phone during the infamous Bronco chase
The behind-the-scenes maneuvering at both the criminal and civil trials, including how crucial evidence came to be excluded. And Lange and Vannatter finally discuss candidly their sense of betrayal and frustration as their painstaking police work was undermined in the criminal trial by both Simpson's "Dream Team" and prosecutor Marcia Clark.

For many, the O.J. Simpson case boiled down to a controversial verdict. For detectives Lange and Vannatter, it was always about solving a double murder. Evidence Dismissed is a powerful reminder that the killer in this case still roams free.
