Publisher's Summary

The shocking tale told in How I Helped O. J. Get Away with Murder is unlike anything you've read before. It isn't Mike Gilbert's "version" of what happened'; it's the unvarnished truth - the truth about O. J., the murders, and the infamous trial, not as Gilbert imagined or would like it to be, but how it actually was. Gilbert doesn't spare anyone, not even himself - he helped deceive the jury and feels deeply responsible for the "Not Guilty" verdict.So why is Gilbert speaking out now? Has he gone from sinner to saint? Is he making a play for sympathy or looking to make a quick buck? No. (Proceeds from this book are going to the March of Dimes and other selected charities.) Gilbert has written this book because he regrets what he did for his adored childhood idol. He can no longer find any excuse for how he has shielded O. J. Simpson, and he is determined to tell the full truth, including:
O. J.'s late-night confession to Gilbert

How Gilbert was responsible for O. J.'s hand not fitting the murder glove

Why O. J. murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman (it was more than jealousy)

Why Gilbert defended O. J. for so long - and what finally convinced him he could do so no longer

How O. J. ignored his financial obligations to the Goldman family and milked the tabloids for money

The real reason why an armed O. J. burst in on the memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas (Gilbert had what O. J. was looking for)Told with searing candor, no one comes out of this book with his reputation intact - including Gilbert. He casts a glaring light on how celebrity can corrupt, how power can mislead, and how friendship and loyalty can be perverted. His book is meant to set the record straight, to lay to rest the ghosts of that dreadful night that have haunted him ever since, and to now play what little part he can to forward the process of justice.

I was reluctant to listen to this book because I would hate to profit anyone from this horrible case, but it was a great listen. To hear how those closest to OJ continue to lie and hide assets was mind boggling. This book did reveal things I didnt know about. The only comfort in the end is that OJ found his way into prison where I hope he takes the time to reflect on his actions and changes his ways. We shall see. My thoughts are on OJ's children with Nicole, now they've lost both parents, very sad. Although, based on this book, he didnt have a good relationship with them anyway.

I am embarrassed that I purchased this complete crap of an audible title . The author Mike Gilbert is sleaze claiming he came up with the glove defense because oj took his advice and did not take his arthritis medication to cause his hand to enlarge I am not joking. this is the book.
