About the Author

Jose Baez is one of the most sought-after attorneys in the country. After successfully defending Casey Anthony in what became one of the nation’s most high-profile trials, he took on the international case of Gary Giordano, which caught international headlines. Baez fought hard to successfully obtain Giordano’s release from a prison in Aruba where he had been held for several months. Baez continues to practice criminal defense law, handling cases throughout the country, especially those involving complex forensic issues for which Baez has shown strong interest and expertise.

Baez is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, extremely active in various charitable endeavors in the Hispanic community, and enjoys traveling and spending time with his family. He currently has offices in Orlando and Miami, Florida.

Peter Golenbock, one of the nation's best-known sports authors, graduated Dartmouth College in 1967 and the NYU School of Law in 1970. He has written seven New York Times bestsellers, including The Bronx Zoo (with Sparky Lyle) and American Prince (with Tony Curtis).

Format: Hardcover
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.

Rather than go into a long review ... I'm going to pull a few choice quotes from Baez's novel to literally highlight the absurdity ...

1. 'She had two large bags of garbage in the car and it doesn't smell?'

-Yes, there was trash. Empty trash. Boxes and containers that were empty. Empty boxes don't smell like decomposing babies. Sorry.

2. '"Her daughter was missing, and she parties for thirty-one days." They knew it was improper. Worse, they knew it was BS. They didn't care.'

-Oh how we all wish it was BS ... but Casey DID party for thirty-one days as well as steal and lie and hide the truth. If we're dealing in FACTS (hence a NON-FICTION novel) let's deal in them shall we?

3. 'After she became pregnant, said Weitz, she never once considered having an abortion or putting the baby up for adoption."

-Again, incorrect. There was a chain of e-mails and text messages where Casey did offer her friend her unborn child. These are the fallacies of a rose-colored story ... this is putting lipstick on a pig.

4. "La Bella Vita" was actually a tribute to Caylee."

-Was it now? Because I don't see anything beautiful about only getting to live until your two, being murdered, wrapped up in a trash bag and being thrown away in the woods like trash.

5. "Not only did Casey tell me she was sexually abused by her father, but there was plenty of other evidence she had told other people about that abuse."

-Have we forgotten that Ms. Anthony is a raging, pathological liar? I mean, countless times Baez leans on that as an "excuse" -- oh poor Casey, she is so screwed up, so mentally wounded, she HAS to lie ...

In this book, Jose Baez tells you NOTHING you don't already know about the case and a great deal about his personal background that reads as pure, self-aggrandizing fiction. So this book is a complete waste of time. But I knew it would be, which is why I didn't buy it - I found it at a friend's house. My friend was furious, felt duped into buying it.

His reaction and the angry reviews read here moved me to offer you some advice in order to save you from wasting your money on this, or any other book, written by a defense attorney about his/her own criminal case. You will NEVER learn anything new about the case from a defense attorney. NEVER. The most you can hope for is background information that offers more support for the innocence of the defendant - and probably a lot of hype for the prowess of the attorney. Why? Because defense attorneys have an ethical obligation to protect their clients FOREVER (with only a few very rare exceptions). Ergo, when a criminal defense attorney writes a book like this, all you'll get are the same b.s. stories he told in court. So if you buy any book like Baez's in the hope that you'll get some revelation about the case or the defendant that is anything but MORE supportive of the claim of innocence, forget about it. Never gonna happen.

But if you do buy this book, or any other of its ilk, do NOT hypocritically write a review complaining about how the defense attorney dares to profit from a tragedy. If you don't want people like this to profit then don't buy the book.
