Review:

Just when you thought every drop of bathos, blather, and recrimination that could be squeezed out of the O. J. Simpson murder trial had been, along comes this book, which reveals the "Dream Team," Simpson's cabal of defense lawyers, as an even less charming bunch of egomaniacs and prevaricators than anyone imagined. Johnnie Cochran is a puffed-up silver-tongued bantam with suspicions that his celebrity client is, after all, guilty; Robert Shapiro is a status-obsessed moron; F. Lee Bailey almost derails the whole defense strategy more than once with his courtroom mishaps. How did these guys win? Produced by Larry Schiller, who co-wrote Simpson's jailhouse bestseller I Want to Tell You and who has a history of plumbing the depths of famously sordid murder cases, this book carries its own lurid fascination.

Book Description Random House Inc, Westminster, Maryland, U.S.A., 1996. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. This account will finally explain for the first time, in the uncensored words of Simpson's closest confidants and attorneys, such mysteries as the missing Louis Vuitton bag and the Bronco chase - where was Simpson going and why? What is the real reason Simpson submitted to a lie detector test and what precisely happened when he got the results? Which members of Simpson's team believed his story, which ones had doubts? Why did the defense know from the beginning that they had at least a hung jury, and why was Simpson told he was going home even before the verdict came down? Why was Simpson's reputation more important to him than whether he was convicted? How did Simpson's team stage an elaborate deception during the jury's visit to his Rockingham mansion? What did a leading forensic psychiatrist discover about O.J. during his face-to-face examination? Why was Johnnie Cochran afraid to return to Simpson's holding cell during final arguments? You've heard the speculations and rumors; now read what really happened. But American Tragedy goes far beyond such revelations, for in these pages the reader will discover who Simpson really is and why he is able to insist upon his innocence even to this day.
