5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth about the Mike Tyson Rape Trial, 3 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Heavy Justice: The Trial of Mike Tyson (Sweet Science: Boxing in Literature & History) (Paperback)
This book is a wonderfullly informative portrayal about the Mike Tyson rape trail that enthrawled the world for 6 months that ultimately saw Tyson convicted and sentenced to six years for the rape of Desiree Washington. Written by Randy Roberts (author of boxing biography Papa Jack - the story of Jack Johnson) it details the truth according to the Indiana prosecution lawyer j Gregory Garrison.
If you are a Tyson fan, a boxing fan or interested in criminal law this book will leave you fascinated as it has all the twists and turns of a John Grisham novel. Thoroughly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and insightful read, 17 Aug 2004
This review is from: Heavy Justice: The Trial of Mike Tyson (Sweet Science: Boxing in Literature & History) (Paperback)
This book is written from the prosecutor's viewpoint, so it condemns not clears Tyson. However, the prose style in smooth and it's not totally biased.
The real strength of the book is giving an insight into the workings of the American legal system as well as touching on other issues like race and the stigma of a sexual crime.
An excellent book although, as a Tyson fan, I regretted that the boxer doesn't come out of it with much credibility.
