Now a major BBC TV series.

The definitive account of the O. J. Simpson trial, The People V. O.J. Simpson is a prodigious feat of reporting that could have been written only by the foremost legal journalist of our time.

First published less than a year after the infamous verdict, Jeffrey Toobin explores the secret dealings and manoeuvring on both sides of the case, and how a combination of the prosecution's over-confidence, the defence's shrewdness, and the Los Angeles Police Department's incendiary history with the city's African-American community, gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

Rich in character, as propulsive as a legal thriller, this enduring narrative continues to shock and fascinate with its candid depiction of the human drama that upended the world. The People V. O.J. Simpson tells the whole story, from the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman to the ruthless gamesmanship behind the scenes of the trial of the century.

About the Author

Jeffrey Toobin was an assistant U.S. attorney before becoming a staff writer at The New Yorker, which published 'An Incendiary Defense', his ground-breaking article on the O.J. Simpson case. He still works at The New Yorker and is a senior legal analyst at CNN, and the bestselling author of The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court, The Nine, Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, The Run of His Life and Opening Arguments. A magna cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School, he lives with his family in New York.

Industry Reviews

‘The book is enjoying a kind of second run in sales, and for once, in a true-crime pop-culture phenomenon, it actually deserves the renewed look...compellingly unique’ - Guardian

‘This is the book to read.’ - New York Times

‘This book stands out as a gripping and colourful account of the crime and trial that captured the world's attention.’ - Boston Sunday Globe

‘A real page-turner ... strips away the months of circuslike televised proceedings and the sordid tell-all books and lays out a simple, but devastating, synopsis of the case.’ - Entertainment Weekly

‘A well-written, profoundly rational analysis of the trial and, more specifically, the lawyers who conducted it.’ - USA Today
