It is definitely about the trial they SHOULD have had the first time.
A question - Does anyone know where you can find this book in paperback in the normal type edition?
I purchased the copy I have before I realized it was the LARGE type edition.
I have since looked all over the web, on eBay and many UK and US used book sellers, and there are dozens available in the bigger type but it seems no one has a copy of this book in paperback in normal size type.
Having read Toobin's The Run of His Life, and Schiller's American Tragedy, both of which are good books, I read Petrocelli's book with the thought that there would be nothing more I could possible learn about the Simpson circus. But there was. Much more.
For example, how could the police have planted the evidence before they had Simpson's blood? How did "the killer" get cut from broken glass, when the cuts were on the back of his fingers? These are only a few of the delicious examples Petrocelli points out.
His description of people and the day to day trial events are vivid; as vivid as his description of Simpson's demeanor. As vivid, even, as Nicole and Ron's autopsy photos.
The book is compelling, and it not once allows the reader to put it down. So, if you were angered that Simpson was found "not guilty," then you will be delightfully rewarded in Petrocelli's account of the civil case.
The case of State of California v. Simpson cost more than $30 million, and took more than a year to complete. The evidence was staggering, and the arguments on both sides strong. Yet, the verdict was "not guilty."
The book Triumph of Justice cost me $20, took me less than a week to read, and Petrocelli's arguments were succinct, powerful, and persuasive. He may not have been "guilty" of murder, but after reading this book, I would certainly find Simpson "responsible" for two grisly deaths.
