Publisher's Summary

For more than a year, Christopher Darden argued tirelessly for the prosecution, giving voice to the victims in the 0.J. Simpson murder trial. This number-one New York Times best seller is an unflinching look at what the television cameras could not show: behind-the-scenes meetings; the deteriorating relationships between the defense and prosecution teams; the taunting, baiting, and pushing matches between Darden and Simpson; the intimate relationship between Darden and Marcia Clark; and the candid factors behind Darden's controversial decision for Simpson to try on the infamous glove, and much more.

Out of the sensational frenzy of "The Trial of the Century" comes this haunting memoir of duty, justice, and the powerful undertow of American racism.

A stunning masterpiece told with brutal honesty and courage.

©1996 Christopher A. Darden (P)1996 HarperCollins Publishers

    "Abridged despite label"

    Not bad but I was expecting the full book as it labeled Unabridged when purchasing.

    Story
    "Author-narrated/well-written - yet abridged"
    What did you love best about In Contempt?

    It was good to hear this narrated by the author, and good to hear the story from his viewpoint.


    Any additional comments?

    Beware, though, this is advertised as unabridged, yet it is only less than 3 hrs. and at the end it says abridged.

    "Wish this had been unabridged"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook! My only critique is that I'd have loved to listen to the longer version!

    "Thank you"

    I watched the trial and got caught up in the hype. I remember this evidence but I didn't see it this way. I more remember the defence case. Wow how easy it is to look past the truth!!! Same it was an abridged version though
