I enjoyed this book, however it told the stories of the trials that we all know about. Almost half of the book was about the O.J. trial. However it was well-written and held my interst. Anyone who enjoys crime books will enjoy this book.
I was not as thrilled with this book as I thought I would be. But that doesn't mean it's not a good book. Dominick Dunne tells a very good, interesting crime story, and he drops names like there's no tomorrow. But most of the cases in this book have already been widely written about, in the papers, magazines and other books. In fact, Dunne spends most of the book discussing the O.J. Simpson crime and trial and he, himself already wrote a book about it years ago. If one is not familiar with these different crimes, one will probably love this book. But for me, it was very redundant.
I just love this guy, and I can't explain why. His stories about the elite in society and what he finds out about them never cease to amaze me. This book has many society headline trials in it, but there are a handful of them about O.J. Simpson - NOT an O.J. book per se, but be prepared for several chapters on him, versus one story about others -Moxley/Kennedy murder, etc.
