Publisher's Summary

Presumed Guilty exposes shocking, never-before-revealed, exclusive information from the trial of the century and the verdict that shocked the nation.

When Caylee Anthony was reported missing in Orlando, Florida, in July 2008, the public spent the next three years following the investigation and the eventual trial of her mother, Casey Anthony. On July 5, 2011, the case that captured headlines worldwide exploded when, against all odds, defense attorney Jose Baez delivered one of the biggest legal upsets in American history: a not-guilty verdict.

In this tell-all, Baez shares secrets the defense knew but has not disclosed to anyone until now, and frankly reveals his experiences throughout the entire case - discovering the evidence, meeting Casey Anthony for the first time, being with George and Cindy Anthony day after day, leading defense strategy meetings, and spending weeks in the judge’s chambers.

Presumed Guilty shows how Baez, a struggling, high school dropout, became one of the nation’s most high-profile defense attorneys through his tireless efforts to seek justice for one of the country’s most vilified murder suspects.

    "straight from the horses mouth"

    it's nice to hear this story from the defense side as well as from a great attorney who obviously has a passion for representation in the process of justice.

    "The true story you have to hear!!"
    If you could sum up Presumed Guilty in three words, what would they be?

    I understand why she walked. A really good book. Went into detail and told the story well.
    Everyone needs to read or hear this.

    Story
    "The Other Side- Interesting"
    If you could sum up Presumed Guilty in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, well written, easy listening


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Presumed Guilty?

    The book was very good, and hard to put down. I started this book after reading Jeff Ashton's book on the case. At the time of trial, I shared the thought with many of my friends that she was guilty. After hearing this book, I understand why the jury found her not guilty.


    What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice reminded me of the Author's voice. Easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It absolutely was-I listened at work, in my car and at home.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the book if you watched the trial.

    "So detailed!"

    I thought this was great! I previously listened to Ashton's book and thought that This book was so much more detailed than Ashton's and actually makes me question what I thought about this case.

    "Loved it!"
    Where does Presumed Guilty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's my favorite and I would listen to it again.


    What other book might you compare Presumed Guilty to and why?

    I'm not sure, I haven't found one as good.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    Perfect narration!


    If you could give Presumed Guilty a new subtitle, what would it be?

    You think you know, but you have no idea!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book because it wasn't one sided. Even though it was written by Casey's attorney it made everything more clear for me. I've always been on her side and never thought she was guilty. I do believe she knew more than she told but I don't think she killed her own daughter. I don't think anyone killed her on purpose. This book will change the opinion of even the most closed-minded person who thinks they know 100% for a fact that Casey is guilty... ok maybe not the most closed-minded person ... there are a lot of fools in this world that refuse to believe anything that makes any kind of sense.

    "More than one side to a story"
    Where does Presumed Guilty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    a 9 out of 10


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Presumed Guilty?

    Cindy Anthony panic over the missing grandchild.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    Pleasant to listen to


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

    The finding of the body.


    Any additional comments?

    Jose Baez seems to have a "pity me" focus in the book. He could have left some of the persecution of his character parts out without effecting the story. People are more interested in information that would assure us that the jury made a good decision.

    "Really interesting case"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was intrigued at how she "got away with it" before listening to this book. Now I'm left wondering what the heck really did happen?!? I enjoyed this book. A little self gratifying by Baez, but not so much that its unforgivable.

    Story
    "If you Don't Have an Open Mind, Don't Bother"

    I followed this this story and trial so the book was only a natural step for me. I was pleasantly surprised at the new information presented. I found things about Jose Baez I did not know. I think everyone deserves a chance to be heard and defended, even zealously defended if their attorney is so inclined. After reading this book, you will understand the need for such a defense maybe a little better. If your mind is totally closed on this case, maybe you will at least have respect for an attorney who believed in the responsibility of his job and the commitment to his client.
    The book is an easy listen.
    The only complaint is the narrator's voice is a little odd sounding since most of us have Jose Baez's voice in our head from the trial. I think there could have been a better choice made.
