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).

Customer Reviews

Casey Anthony and Jose Baez got their wish.
Heather Hays
He doesn't explain the duct tape being attached to the hair mat, which indicates that it was wrapped around Caylee's face.
Ravenous Reader
This book is a waste of time, money, and mental resources if you want to know the truth about what happened to Caylee.

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.

Judge Stan Strickland said, "The truth and Ms. Anthony are strangers." Truer words were indeed never spoken! After reading this book, I believe the truth and Mr. Baez are strangers too.

Baez's own opening statement was filled with lies that this book does not address. So, if you think this book will back up statements that he failed to prove at trial - I am sorry to tell you, you will be sorely disappointed. His words at trial were: "You'll see evidence, conclusive evidence, that he[George Anthony] took steps to throw his own daughter under the bus just to protect himself"

Oh, and lest we forget - His opening statement he accused Mr. Kronk of finding Caylee's body and moving it.
"Mr. Kronk is a morally bankrupt individual who actually took Caylee's body and hid her." Again, not proven in court or the book.

I could go on, but will instead spare you and focus on a few abominations and atrocities from the book.

Baez regurgitates a tale allegedly told by KC, about the 'abuse' she allegedly endured from her father. The disgusting details include KC's nickname for her father's anatomy as 'baldy' and a vile analogy of petting a mouse till the mouse sneezed milk. Baez surely realizes that this lurid tale and storyline were lifted from the TV comedy South Park. If not, he is at least guilty of not doing his research.

With childish glee, Baez recounts how the 'team' came up with the nickname "rat hands" for Mr. Ashton. Given the above "sneezing mouse" analogy, how could this be funny to any professional attorney who in fact believed his client's far-fetched story of the childhood abuse? DISGUSTING at best.

Another example that Baez's credibility is nonexistent: He claims he had a good flow of income prior to this case.

I checked this book out from the library (because I refuse to pay a penny to support Jose Baez or Casey Anthony) and found it to be as expected - an unsupported crock of BS. Sadly, the jury was - tired, lonely, overwhelmed, coerced by the CSI Hollywood hype that solves a case in an hour, didn't understand the term REASONABLE DOUBT does NOT apply to any crazy theory that pops into your head and were just plain ready to go home. Read the book since everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I would suggest you borrow it or check it out of the local library since it is definitely NOT worth paying for, owning or keeping.

DON'T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!!! Yes I bought the book, don't you be a DUMMY as I was. I had watched Jose on Dr. Drew talking of the book and had decided after that I needed to hear the REAL TRUTH from Casey... (her side) WHATEVER! I bought into the whole you will know the real truth after you read the book... No, nothing like that!! He don't say one word more than I already knew about the case... Only thing he did for me was prove what a moran he is and his wife for that matter!!! Its clear in the book that he and Casey did the deed... I always suspected it, this book just confirmed it.. She got to him just as she did other men in her life.. By whats between her legs! I can't believe i fell for it and paid good money for this garbage!!! At one point in the book when Casey was released from jail he talks about how they were driving down the road and she (Casey) started to say, "Guess who lives on this street"? He said before she could finish he belted out, "Zanny"! And then they both laughed out loud with Casey saying, "I should punch you for that"! As if the two were laughing at THE, OURS, Justice system... Total Garbage, don't be a dummy like me and purchase this book!!!
