Publisher's Summary

The shocking tale told in How I Helped O. J. Get Away with Murder is unlike anything you've read before. It isn't Mike Gilbert's "version" of what happened'; it's the unvarnished truth - the truth about O. J., the murders, and the infamous trial, not as Gilbert imagined or would like it to be, but how it actually was. Gilbert doesn't spare anyone, not even himself - he helped deceive the jury and feels deeply responsible for the "Not Guilty" verdict.

So why is Gilbert speaking out now? Has he gone from sinner to saint? Is he making a play for sympathy or looking to make a quick buck? No. (Proceeds from this book are going to the March of Dimes and other selected charities.) Gilbert has written this book because he regrets what he did for his adored childhood idol. He can no longer find any excuse for how he has shielded O. J. Simpson, and he is determined to tell the full truth, including:

  • O. J.'s late-night confession to Gilbert
  • How Gilbert was responsible for O. J.'s hand not fitting the murder glove
  • Why O. J. murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman (it was more than jealousy)
  • Why Gilbert defended O. J. for so long - and what finally convinced him he could do so no longer
  • How O. J. ignored his financial obligations to the Goldman family and milked the tabloids for money
  • The real reason why an armed O. J. burst in on the memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas (Gilbert had what O. J. was looking for)

    Told with searing candor, no one comes out of this book with his reputation intact - including Gilbert. He casts a glaring light on how celebrity can corrupt, how power can mislead, and how friendship and loyalty can be perverted. His book is meant to set the record straight, to lay to rest the ghosts of that dreadful night that have haunted him ever since, and to now play what little part he can to forward the process of justice.

      "Wow"

      Book review: This book is entirely the title, it explains why O.J. got away with murder. I don't want to join the masses of finger pointers, and tsk the writer for his role in O.J.'s acquittal, I just appreciate him realizing what he had become entangled in, and writing this book to fill the rest of the world in on what happened behind the scenes. I would recommend this book if you had any opinion about the trial, or were captivated by the media footage.
      Narrator review: Not the best voice, just odd sounding, it could have been better, but it's something one can adjust to.

      "Wow!"

      I was reluctant to listen to this book because I would hate to profit anyone from this horrible case, but it was a great listen. To hear how those closest to OJ continue to lie and hide assets was mind boggling. This book did reveal things I didnt know about. The only comfort in the end is that OJ found his way into prison where I hope he takes the time to reflect on his actions and changes his ways. We shall see. My thoughts are on OJ's children with Nicole, now they've lost both parents, very sad. Although, based on this book, he didnt have a good relationship with them anyway.

      "For only the OJ obsessed"
      Any additional comments?

      I was really into the OJ trial and even I had a hard time getting through this one. Not a lot that was new. This is only for the hard core "fans" of the trial.

      "Don't equit, it all fits!"
      Where does How I Helped O. J. Get Away with Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      This is among my "Top 10" read so far.


      What was one of the most memorable moments of How I Helped O. J. Get Away with Murder?

      Actually, I found the whole book fascinating. Think of it as seeing the inside of a clock for the first time; you know it tells you the correct time, but now you can see how the pieces work to give you the correct time.


      What about Mel Foster’s performance did you like?

      Mel's narration of the book was like a friend telling you a story. Very easy to listen to.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      There was, but I won't spoil it for other readers. They'll know it when they hear it.


      Any additional comments?

      There's nothing here that most of us didn't already know or at least suspect. However, you'll be taken deeper into the backstory of the "everyday O.J." than any media ever went before. If you love true story whodunits like I do, this one's worth checking out.

      "Better late than never"
      Is there anything you would change about this book?

      Abbreviate it perhaps. There were some boggy chapters about the author that candidly wasn't of interest. Overall though, it flowed and I could pick up easily where I had left off.


      What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

      One statement OJ made to Gilbert was the only ending I needed.


      What aspect of Mel Foster’s performance would you have changed?

      The performance was good. I came to think he was the author.


      If this book were a movie would you go see it?

      Probably not. The icon's fall from grace would be hard to watch again, although the character analysis of OJ was fascinating. Lots of reasons we should all be thankful we don't idolize OJ Simpson anymore.

      What was one of the most memorable moments of How I Helped O. J. Get Away with Murder?

      OJ finally going to jail


      What about Mel Foster’s performance did you like?

      He did a very good job


      If you could give How I Helped O. J. Get Away with Murder a new subtitle, what would it be?
