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)

    "Concise Presentation of the Overwhelming Evidence"

    I've read a number of books on the O.J. murders. None of them presented the overwhelming evidence for conviction in such a rapid, clear, organized, concise manner. If you ever had a second thought about the Juice's guilt, read this account of the irrefutable facts.

    A passage in the book proclaims (paraphrased,) "The only person convicted of anything from these murders was the police investigator." The book uses the courtroom facts to show how political correctness and a jury's unwillingness to acknowledge the law and follow court instructions denied one family justice, and another their future.

    "Well done, very informative"

    It's true that Mark Fuhrman spends a fair amount of time pointing out the injustices to himself. If you were the author and in his position, chances are you'd use the sounding board much the same way. However, he also spends a great deal of time talking about the irrefutable evidence against Simpson and how not all of it, much of it critical, was used against him in court. I found the book interesting, eye-opening, and it wildly changed my views on Mark Fuhrman. I highly recommend it.

    I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.

    "Murder in Brentwood"

    I have always been sure O.J. was guilty and that Furman received a raw deal and now I'm positive. How any sane people could hear that evidence and not convict him, I don't know. I've worked as a court reporter for over 25 years in Dallas and I'm familiar with the criminal justice system, such as it is. LA should be ashamed of themselves.

    "Worth listening to. Gained new perspective."

    If you’re interested in the O.J. case, then I think you find this worth listening to. I did learn a few new things. And it was interesting to get Mark Furhman’s perspective about the way the police and the prosecution handled the case. I found it generally compelling. And it's very well read.

    "As a former cop"

    To the reviewers who felt there was too much whinning in the book - this mans life was ruined because he did no more than his job. He has a right to a little venting, but didn't let it get in the way of a clear recitation of the facts and of his conclusions from those. I totally agree with his conclusions based on the facts presented in this book and in Mike Gilbert's book which I read first. Watching the trial, I bet a guy O.J. Was going to get off because of the prosecuters. Thebook did change my opinion of Furman for the better.

    "Great Audio, Just when you thought you knew it all"

    If you remember being glued to the television, If you remember all of the tv drama. If you think you heard all of the evidence, even if you think you know what really happened, you have to listen to this audio. I have the utmost respect for our law enforcement officials and it is shameful how this gentleman who dedicated his career to protect and serve had been treated like the victim.

    "murder in brentwood"

    I was very impressed with Mark Fuhrman's book. His clear and concise evaluation of evidence was so well written that I am more sure than ever that
    OJ did indeed get away with murder.

    "Interesting insight into this crime"
    What did you love best about Murder in Brentwood?

    It brought a new perspective to me about how and why the trial was a complete failure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder in Brentwood?

    The step by step analysis of what took place the night of the murders.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Fuhrman goes through his analysis of the crime scene and puts together how he thought the crime unfolded. Very interesting and it all makes sense.


    If you could give Murder in Brentwood a new subtitle, what would it be?

    A Travesty of Justice


    Any additional comments?

    If you think OJ was innocent then this book is not for you because it is hard to argue with the facts. If you are curious about what happened the night of the murders then this is the book to read.

    "Dreadful Narration"

    I listen to audio books while working in Photoshop so it's a quiet atmosphere. I was interested in this book but the narration ruins it. I can hear the stops and starts amid the droning and changes in inflection that seem to happen for no reason. It got so annoying/distracting that I just gave up. I am a long time Audible listener and I've never purchased a book that was such an audio mess.

    I am a normal girl, looking for a job and trying to finish a Masters. It's a lot harder than you think. The job hunt especially!
