Editorial Reviews

Review

"This pivotal witness in the most dramatic murder trial of the decade now speaks for himself—his anger, his apologies, and his regrets."
— Diane Sawyer
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

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 “Dream Team,” and it worked.

Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in a damning exposé that reveals why and how Simpson’s interrogation and prosecution were bungled.

Mark Fuhrman’s own hand-drawn maps of the crime scene and his reconstruction of the murders leave no doubt about what really happened on June 12, 1994.

Murder in Brentwood sets the record straight.

Although the writing is basic and somewhat repetitive, I found this to be an insightful book regarding the investigation of the murders in Brentwood. As any educated person can tell, Mark Fuhrman was the scapegoat of this century. He was strung up and left out to dry by many, namely the "dream team" defense for OJ Simpson. But lets look at the basic facts, Nicole and Ron are dead. DNA blood samples from BOTH bodies are found in OJ's Bronco, OJ runs from police or attempts suicide?, OJ can't even get his alibi straight, and Detectives Van Natter and Lange don't seem to find this strange? Well because of their mistakes and others (namely Marcia Clark and Fung) Fuhrman became the "fall-guy."
I don't care what Fuhrman did, said or wrote in a screen play lined with racial ephitats 15 years earlier. Two people are dead and the a miriad of evidence points to only one suspect. Clearly the American justice system has failed Nicole and Ron. So has the media, so has the LAPD. But they all also failed Mark Fuhrman. Hang tough, Mr. Fuhrman, you have been vindicated in my book!

I enjoyed reading Murder In Brentwood. Mark Fuhrman, the infamous former LAPD detective provides evidence that the O.J. Simpson murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were not investigated appropriately. Mark Fuhrman who was the first investigator at the murder scene talked about evidence that were overlooked from the crime scene, from O.J. Simpson's home, and also from his car. Mr Fuhrman discussed the reasons certain witness were not called to testify. Mark Fuhrman outlined what he thought happened on June 12, 1994, at South Bundy Drive, the home of Nicole Brown. I found myself at the crime scene following step by step through Mark Furhman's detailed account. I highly recommend this book.

This book give a very detailed "behind the scenes" look at this terrible tragedy. The murders were horrific and the clarity with which Mark Fuhrman writes is excellent.

Like many people who followed the trial, I watched in morbid curiosity while the media and the court set out to influence public opinion about O.J and the "Trial of the Century". I never appreciated Mark Fuhrman's position or knowledge of the case until I read this book. To be honest, I expected it to be an attempt to apologize to the country for contributing to this apparent miscarriage of justice. Instead, what I found was a facinating, professional account of the facts of the case. I have also gone on to read his book, Murder in Greenwich, and one thing is certain. Mr. Fuhrman is the man I'd want on the case.

First of all...yes, the book is worth reading. I was amazed at the mass of evidence which pointed directly to OJ Simpson. I never realized that there was THAT much evidence which would have put away any man in a matter of days (of court). Fuhrman also points out the reasons why much of the evidence was not used - and one will be utterly amazed at the tactics of the defense and the prosecution to suppress evidence!

There were two parts of the book that, at first, I did not think belonged in the book. The sections were about Fuhrman's later problems with his former lady friend, the potential screenwriter, and what he said ten years ealier. And how it came back to haunt him. The other section dealt with his problems with Margaret York (a police capitan who was Judge Lance Ito's wife). At first, I didn't think these were necessary to be in the book. But, at the conclusion of the book, I now understand why Fuhrman included these chapters. It sets up the whole trial against Fuhrman.

I enjoyed Fuhrman's caustic attitude toward York, the Defense Team (especially Cochran), and the prosecution (both Marsha and Christopher). Fuhrman was vilified at the trial because he said the "n-word", and OJ kills two people and gets off scott free!

This book clearly shows the incompetence of the prosecution by using Mark Fuhrman as the scapegoat. Mark not only does a superb job in his investigation, but also testifying. Being a police officer, I've had the opportunity to view numerous detectives testify. I can honestly say that he is one of the most professional detectives I've ever seen. It is a shame that a double murderer gets off, due to a circumstance which had nothing to do with the trial. The book was superb and I could not put it down. Mr. Fuhrman should not be seen as a person who is a racist, because he is not, but should be congratulated for his outstanding job in his performance of his duties. I salute Mark Fuhrman and only hope that he could go on to live a normal life.

I would recommend this book to anyone who really wants to learn the truth of what happened that night in Brentwood. Detective Fuhrman leads you step by step through the crime scene and goes over all the evidence including those that were never mentioned during the Simpson trial. It seems unbelievable that his superiors could have been so careless in not even reading the young detective's notes. If they had, they would have seen the bloody print left on the gate and Simpson would be paying for his crime instead of playing golf The prosecution was so weak that they almost apologized because they were trying a man who once played football. I believed Detective Fuhrman when he was on the stand and this book only reinforced my belief in his integrity and honesty. That he used the "N" word should have never been brought up during the trial in the first place. Simpson's lawyers tried to turn it into the Mark Fuhrman trial which resulted in a killer being freed. I would be honored to know Mr. Fuhrman and think he is a superb writer. I have also read MURDER IN GREENWICH and will definitely buy the next book that he writes. The LAPD lost a valuable man, but the world now has another great writer.
