I am going to write a review of the book, which I did read all the way through, as best I can without getting into my personal feelings about Casey Anthony and Jose Baez. I read the book because after the trial, I still could not understand what actually happened to Caylee, and was hoping to get some new information. The book did not provide me with anything factual that could go towards answering my questions, however.

I have two major problems with the book: (1) Baez uses it as an opportunity to bash Jeff Ashton relentlessly, and arrogantly. He resents Ashton's behavior and characterizations of him, rightly so, and yet stoops to the same level. Baez states that he is a classy, talented lawyer, and yet dives right down into the worst behaviors himself. This made it difficult to read the book for content. (2) The book left many unanswered questions for me:

(a) the alleged sexual abuse. This was never proven, and never corroborated by anyone. Casey told several people that she had been groped by her adolescent brother, but never alleged any abuse by her father, when she had every opportunity and motive to do so, had it been true. In fact, in her jailhouse letter to Robin Adams, she says that she DOESN'T remember her father abusing her, only her brother, which consisted of touching her breasts. Baez, however, states that she told people of "the abuse", but he never says that she only mentioned her brother. Misleading at best, and amounts to falsehood about the abuse statements.

(b) the duct tape attached to the hair mat. I was not present at the trial and did not see the pictures, but in the coroner's report, it is stated that duct tape was attached to the hair mat, and had held the mandible attached to the skull.

I have never written a review before, nor have I felt compelled to do so. I won't go into the contradictions and lies that "jumped" out at me as I read this book, as so many before me have very eloquently revealed and expressed all of that. First of all, I am so disgusted with myself for downloading the book on my Kindle. What was I thinking? But, alas I wanted to be fair and ... I was a tad curious (curiosity killed the cat ... I'm a dead woman). Oh well. I could hardly get through this piece of rubbish. Jose Baez is a total waste of skin ... and an abomination to the legal profession and just the most sleazy creep I can ever imagine. I don't like to say that kind of thing about people because I like to believe that most people have some kind of redeeming quality. Jose Baez proved me wrong by writing this book. It is obvious to me that this strategy was pretty much in place from the beginning, as he would not allow Casey to have visits from her parents in jail (for almost the full 3 years). But he managed to keep it on the down-low ... thus the "shock and awe" at the trial. He is so very arrogant thinking he had the upper hand and saying things like .. "see, I told you they (the prosecution) were on our side, whenever something (kinda) went his way. He constantly inferred that he "outsmarted" the prosecutors and tried to paint them in an ill light. I know I'm rambling but this guy is an unbelievable pompous ass. I just can't imagine that he thinks he is some kind of genius, when it was an obvious spineless, unintelligent jury who allowed this woman to walk free and not even pay for at least child-neglect. Honestly, that jury foreman is a total idiot and I think they all wanted to get the hell out of dodge. They did NOT and I repeat NOT do their duty. Come on ...Read more ›

I read the 140 sample pages. The overall impression I get is that Baez is just so, so, so proud of himself and he thinks he's a big star. Baez is so morally deluded and occupied with tooting his horn that he completely overlooks the numerous contradictions he's made throughout his book.

In 2008: Baez preached "Caylee is alive, she is out there and we need to find her. The police are concentrating on the wrong things."

Now: The cops should have immediately realized Casey Anthony was not playing with a full deck and done...what? Stopped questioning her about her missing child? Sent her to one of the mental health experts who DID IN FACT EXAMINE HER and found her perfectly fit to stand trial? He shows absolutely no regard for human life and ignores the rights of Caylee Marie Anthony. Caylee had the right to live and the right to be buried respectfully as a human being and not left in the woods to be chewed up by animals. He also ignores her right to be found during an investigation that her OWN MOTHER obstructed for her own selfish reasons.

I take issue with Baez thinking his personal opinion of Casey's mental health overrides those of the numerous experts who examined Casey Anthony before and even DURING the trial to ascertain her mental health. Baez is as crappy of a psychiatrist as he is a lawyer. What he should have included in his book would be what that mental health analysis taken during the trial indicates.

In 2008 Baez was moseying around with a birthday card Jesse Grund sent Caylee, showing it to anyone and everyone who walks by and commenting on how creepy it is. Much LIKE CASEY ANTHONY HERSELF, He completely ignores George as any sort of person of interest at this point.
