Murder in Brentwood | [Mark Fuhrman]

Murder in Brentwood

For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop, a brilliant detective, had to be destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grew, so did the outrage about the scapegoating of Mark Fuhrman. Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in a damning expose.

Publisher's Summary

For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop, a brilliant detective, had to be destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grew, so did the outrage about the scapegoating of Mark Fuhrman. Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in a damning expose.

Fuhrman takes the listener on a detective's journey through the crucial first 24 hours of the investigation. We uncover not only the bloody glove but also explosive new evidence recorded by Fuhrman and his partner at the scene but astonishingly never presented at the trial. New revelations about the incompetence and corruption that pervaded the "Trial of the Century" will set the record straight.

What the Critics Say

"He is providing a badly needed, if one-sided retrospective on how his role unfolded." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "somethings are just better in book form"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    this was very mono tone, i had to keep rewinding to get what the reader was saying. could not keep my interest so i read the book and it was very interesting.


    Would you recommend Murder in Brentwood to your friends? Why or why not?

    book form only, see above


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Riggenbach?

    anyone, multiple people


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    this was so mono tone and uninteresting i almost canceled my audio account thinking all books would be like this, i gave it another try and am glad i did.

    Story
    "Very Interesting Listen"
    What did you love best about Murder in Brentwood?

    I found the in depth look at the "Trial of the Century" to be very intersting. Also learning more about Fuhrman and how it affected his life was great as well. Highly recommended. Also, if you happen to believe that the defendant was guilty (as many of us did), there is also further evidence that this was the case. Good book. Good content.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The additional details on the evidence & subsequent trial.

    "Couldn't stop listening"

    I listened to the OJ trial and was familiar with most of the names. If you can to thn this book is very addicting. I would recommend it and flew through it. The reader was annoying but the subject matter made up for it. 3 of 5 stars

    "Murder in Brentwood"

    Not at all what I expected. I had hope to hear more about the evidence in the case as oppose to hearing Furman complain about how he was treated. It's OK to talk about it once but it's littered throughout the book. Should not been called Murder in Brentwood for the author spent a tremendous amount of time complaining about how poorly everyone else did but him. Would not recommend this book to anyone who wanted to know more about the case than was in the press already
