Dominick referred to himself as an observant outsider & that description fits his style very well. His observations were fascinating to read; he could capture moments in such a way as to put the reader right there in the courtroom. He could capture a gesture, a sneer, a smirk, whatever was *really* going on around him. He caught nuances.

Having read newspaper accounts of the cases at the time & having seen the tv coverage of some of them made this book all the more enjoyable. Were there things I learned in here? Absolutely. Gossip? Innuendo? Clues? Yes. Did he leave me wanting more? You bet!

This book was a light, easy read after the passage of so much time. 433 pages (no pictures or fluff) & I ordered a few more books immediately based on hints he dropped in this one.

Hated to see this one end!

Great Read - Great Stories - I love how Mr. Dunne writes...like I am in the room as he is telling me the story personally! I just wish he was still alive so that I had more of his books to read!

Dominick Dunne is a phenomenal story teller, none of his trial coverages are boring.His privileged insider information and the web of friends and acquaintances helped him build a case for each of the trials he watched, thus giving us an expert position on each. A transcendental book!

Good read, Dunne always tells a great story. Wish it was twice as long so could be more detailed. Was hungering for more. A large part of book detailed the O.J. Simpson case. I was not expecting so many pages dedicated to Simpson, but was not disappointed. It was very insteresting and more detailed than many of the other of the cases in book. I devoured this one.

Fascinating book. I love all of his books. I even enjoy rereading them. He has the inside scoop on all the famous as crimes. To his book is a short summary of previous books he has written. He has a fun sense of humor to lighten things up. Well worth the read.

I bought this for my dear Aunt,who suffers from macular degeneration, which has left her unable to read. She Loved it! My family has always been fans of the late Dominick Dunne and his chatty, spilling the beans style of reporting on trials of the rich and infamous. Included are the cases of Claus Von Bulow, Martha Moxley and O.J. Simpson. A can't miss for true crime aficionado's........

I love Dominick Dunne's writing -- I was lucky enough to snag this one while it was on promo sale for free!
5 stars for the non-OJ stories. Dominick loses a star for writing so much about Simpson and his circus. Everything else in here is fantastic - especially the Menendez Brothers story and the article about his daughter.
