Format: Paperback
To buy the conclusions in this book you have to believe that ex-LA cop Ron Shipp is some kind of combination of James Bond, Mr. Wizard, and Professor Moriarity. Whipping up fake blood genetically identical to OJ's at home in order to plant false evidence? I ask you.
Plus in order to bring off the trick he'd have to own a working crystal ball and a Ouija board, to know before it happened that OJ would cut his finger the next morning, to know that OJ wouldn't have an iron-clad alibi at the moment itself, to arrange the hundreds of random events that surround any place and time.
Here's a scenario that takes into account all the fact that Schulman uses, but doesn't toss away Occam's razor:
OJ kills Nichole and Ron. He cuts his finger, drips blood, is late for his limo, the whole thing. From the airport he calls his good friend Ron, under the theory that "Friends help you move; good friends help you move bodies." He makes his "I dreamed I did something bad to Nichole" comment.
Ron, though, isn't _that_ good a friend. The farthest he's willing to go is promising that he won't tell anyone about this phone call. He drives by Nichole's house, and his worst fears are realized: there are bodies lying on the ground. He's not going to call the cops himself; he's that good a friend, and he doesn't need the hassle. But he doesn't know about the trail of blood, either. Having been a cop himself, he doesn't have a lot of confidence in their finding evidence. So he picks up one of two gloves he finds on scene, drives over to OJ's house, and throws the glove over the fence.
Next morning, he calls OJ's house, and the cops pick up the phone. He's satisfied that they'll get the murderer. Later, he lies about when he first learned of Nichole's murder.

Thinks Ron shipp did it. Although Shipp sounds like a wannabee looking to exploit his friendship with OJ to make himself seem like a bigshot. And he also acted odd after the event by providing inconsistent testimony for the prosecution and cozying up to the Goldman's during the civil trial. But to think he did it requires enormous leaps of faith, the biggest being he drugged OJ sometime before the murders and without Simpson's knowledge drew his blood so he could plant it at the scene. Surprisingly for a professional author the writing is rather poor too.

Schulman is good fiction writer and, in this book, an uneven logician. It's bad if he believes his thesis...perhaps even worse if he's playing devil's advocate at this length just as an exercise in contrarianism. A woman was murdered and many of the friends and family of the murder victim are still around.

The book was an okay read but you really had to stretch your imagination. I believe some of the facts Mr Shulman dug up are more than coincidence, but I just don't buy it. If you've read all the other books for thier point of view, this is probably worth a read.

Mr. Shuman's theory was interesting, but a bit hard to swallow. Without any solid facts to back it up its just more hype. What he took 300 pages to write he could have said in 10. Most of the book was about patting hiself on the back for being such a smart guy.

I have steadfastly maintained my opinion that OJ Simpson not only was exonerated of the charges against him in the criminal trial, but that he DID NOT COMMIT THE MURDERS. It seems that,in spite of a "not guilty" ruling by the jury, the vast majority of our public still thinks OJ is guilty. Most of the many books written about the case descend on Simpson like vultures on a carcass. About the only prominent voice that I have heard supporting Simpson has been F.Lee Bailey, who is outspoken about OJ's innocence, and vows that the real murderer will be found.
Now, at long last, we have a book that opens the door to the truth. Neil Schulman has written a fascinating ,cogent,and carefully detailed book based on the premise: "If not Simpson, then who?" Schulman sets up the stage with a simple question: Assuming someone other than OJ committed the murders, and framed OJ in the process, what qualifications and skills would that person have to possess in order to succeed? His list of these qualities and skills is complete and convincing.
It is Schulman's belief that, given OJ's acquittal, the case is still open, and the LA Police Department should continue its search for the killer(s). In identifying a person who matches all the criteria mentioned above, Schulman is very careful to say that it is not his place to make accusations, but only to provide plausible evidence for the police to pursue. To be fair to the man he identifies as a potential suspect,Schulman delivered to him and his lawyer copies of his unpublished manuscript, saying that if they would provide evidence which refutes his conclusions, he would not publish the book. He got no response.
No matter what position you take on the guilt or innocence of Simpson, you should read this book to get a convincing new perspective on the case.

I admit it, I'm an O.J. Simpson fanatic. I followed every moment of the both trials, and I have read nearly every book printed on the case. I became an expect on the trial, so I thought. Mr. Schulman reconfirmed many of my hypothetical theories, I've believed to be true. He also showed me many elements, of his theory that would convince any open-minded person that O.J. got framed. This framing is not stemming from race or any form of bigotry, nor did the Los Angles, Police Dept. had anything to do with it. At the very least, we owe it to Nicole Simpson & Ron Brown to research the speculations printed in this book. It is obvious, Mr. Schulman did his homework before allowing this book to be published with no intentions to look for a large amount of $$. I feel, if Mr. Schulman is correct he deserves a Pulitzer. If the O.J. case intrigues you will LOVE THIS BOOK. If you read this book, please keep an open mind to his writings before casting an opinion. A vindication will be in order
