In this real-life investigation piece, private investigator William C. Dear knows one thing: O. J. Simpson is innocent of the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. William Dear sponsored is own six-year long investigation to prove this pact, and look at overlooked or missing witnesses and evidence. The largest part of theory is the little-known suspect Jason Simpson - O.J. Simpson's eldest son, who had a history of mental instability. All of this makes O.J. Is Innocent and I Can Prove It an incredible alternate look at the famous 1994 murder trial. Narrator Fleet Cooper does an excellent job laying out the material through audio.
The shocking truth about the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman were brutally murdered at Nicole’s home on Bundy Drive in Brentwood, California, on the night of June 12, 1994. The weeks and months that followed were full of spectacle, including a much-watched car chase and the eventual arrest of O. J. Simpson for the murders. The televised trial that followed was unlike any that the nation had ever seen. Long convinced of O. J.’s guilt, the world was shocked when the jury of the "trial of the century" read the verdict of not guilty.
To this day, the LAPD, Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, mainstream media, and much of the world at large remain firmly convinced that O. J. Simpson literally got away with murder. According to private investigator William Dear, it is precisely this assuredness that has led both the police and public to overlook a far more likely suspect. Dear now compiles more than 16 years of investigation by his team of forensic experts and presents evidence that O. J. was not the killer.
In O. J. is Innocent and I Can Prove It, Dear makes the controversial but compelling case that it was, in fact, the "overlooked suspect", O. J.’s eldest son, Jason, who committed the grisly murders. Sure to stir the pot and raise some eyebrows, this book is a must-listen.

Yes, because someone else reads it to me.
The narrator did a GREAT job. I loved the writing and the research done to compile the acts. Best of all, I liked that it did what it set out to do: Change my mind as to who killed Nicole & Ron.
I think the interview with Dr. Henry Lee was great.
I never even knew Jason was a suspect. I think he may be charged one day.
I have never wanted to rage quit a book so hard before I read this one. On the one hand, Dear really did some ground breaking research into this case and came across some very compelling pieces of evidence (For example: the day after the murders, OJ retains an attorney...not for himself, but for his son!). In terms of investigative work, I give Dear an A+. It really is a game changer.
However, the writing is beyond abysmal. I mean, holy repetition batman! I would listen to it for three hours and he would say nothing I didn't already know from the previous chapters. It was literally just him telling and retelling the same thing over and over. And he seemed to think a lot of this investigation was really exciting, even when it didn't pan out: For instance, he spent a great deal of time stalking some psychiatrist that OJ saw and covered every instance of this in his book. I just kept waiting for all of this to pay off and it never did. He recounted every instance that he *told* someone about his theory--and not just in the way that he just said he had a conversation with this person and what they said--he would recount it verbatim.
The book has been covered pretty extensively in the media, so unless you're a die hard crime junkie, I would recommend reading the content on the internet as opposed to reading the book.
There was no need for this book to be 16 hours long. All the information is covered within the first couple of hours after that it's just beating you over the head with the same stuff over and over.
