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.

    Story
    "Blah, blah, blah"

    This author wants things both ways. One example, Casey pretended to go to work for two years taking Caylee to a pretend nanny keeping Caylee safe from possible molestation by Caylee's grandfather. Yet on the day Caylee was murdered Casey was on the computer leaving Caylee to be looked after by her (possible molesting) grandfather?!? Huh? So many incidents like this in the novel, frustrating to listen to these and the constant conspiracy theories. More to this story but this novel is much too biased. Would not recommend this one.

    Story
    "Baez or bias?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Presumed Guilty to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I would have had a hard time reading it over listening.


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

    When a man found the alleged corpse months before it was formally acknowledged.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't have a favorite scene, I think Jose did a great job of showing his side of the case. I suppose this is why he was hired;)


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    That Casey's parents were hiding something and to ths day I wonder why they were not more scrutinized.


    Any additional comments?

    Justice is not for the faint of heart, I am glad I have not had to play God in any such trial.

    "Provides a different outlook."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Presumed Guilty to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the printed version, but the performance was excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't have one


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

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Her attorney, who wrote the book, brought out some incidents that sounded believable. You got a better understanding why the jurors found her not guilty.

    "Loved the book"

    I loved the book, but I also loved the verdict. If your mind is made up against Casey, I can't imagine you'd enjoy this book very much. If you're open to the defense, I think you'll find the book thought provoking and enjoyable. Even, dare I say, persuasive.

    Story
    "Never thought I would have doubt!"
    What made the experience of listening to Presumed Guilty the most enjoyable?

    I had already listened to the prosecution side of the story and decided I wanted to hear the defense to what seemed like such an open and shut case.


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

    Other true crime books because your going to hear a lot of testimony, theories, and legal jargan.


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

    He seems to have a familiarity with not only the book but also the case. I honestly felt like it was Baez telling me his side.


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

    "Beyond Reasonable Doubt"


    Any additional comments?

    I thought there was no way in the world anyone would convince me this girl was innocent of plain murder! However had I been on the jury for this case I would have had to say unequivocally NOT GUILTY! There are just too many unanswered questions and suspicious behaviors! If you love true crime or this case interest you I encourage you to listen to both of the stories (the prosecution side and the defense).

    "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.

    "liked the book could not put it down"
    Where does Presumed Guilty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    because this is a true story and describes very well what Beaz' motivations and thoughts were behind his defending. This side of the story needed to be told and deserved to be told. It was a shame to see how the media had decided to declare CA guilty before the trial and went out of its way to prove this. Media coverage during this trial was very manipulative and unilateral therefore I greatly welcomed to hear another side of the story but there is still a part of me wondering whether it was ethically correct for a lawyer to write this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cheney Mason too bad he was not mentioned more often.


    Any additional comments?

    The Casey Anthony story has taught me a lot,we never will know for sure what really happened. It might be possible that she is innocent. It was a shame to see how many people, influenced by the media, were and are willing to display so much hatred and call themselves Christian in the same sentence.
    This shows to me how we all are being influenced by the mass media, maybe we should give some thought to that..... How far are we willing to go as a result of this?........

    "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.
