Publisher's Summary

In the early of investigating the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Lyle Goldman, L.A.P.D. Homicide Detective Mark Fuhrman uncovered evidence destined to become the cornerstone of the prosecution's case in the trial of O.J. Simpson. But as the elaborate legal epic unfolded, Fuhrman himself-his character and professional conduct - far overshadowed the impact of his evidence. What emerged in the public eye, though shielded from the eyes of the jurors, was an appalling history of planting evidence, beating up suspects, virulent racism and anti-Semitism acted out behind the safety of a badge. While the defense attempted to capitalize on the heavily publicized information about Fuhrman, prosecutors scrambled to maintain courtroom focus on the actual defendant. Meanwhile, journalist Stephen Singular took on the task of infiltrating the police department crime lab in search of the truth. What he discovered earned him a starring role on the glittery defense team as he outlined for them a means of proving that the defendant's blood actually could have been planted at the crime scene. With this demonstration as a springboard, the defense scored a victory that astonished the entire world. But had a renegade cop actually planted the blood or not? In Legacy of Deception, Stephen Singular disassembles the wall of deception constructed by the L.A.P.D. to reveal a scenario far more sinister than anything that emerged in the course of the trial chilling proof that true innocence was rare or nonexistent in this nightmarish case.

A rare experience

Where does Legacy of Deception rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Too much deep information.

Any additional comments?

It is the rare book that can make me change a long-held opinion. But I am definitely re-thinking the OJ case. He's a creepy person, but he was and continues to be prosecuted by the media. Stephen Singular is a superb journalist, and I'm glad that I listened to the Audible version rather than reading the book. His voice really adds to the experience.

Surprisingly good.

I listened to this all the way through in 1 day. It is very interesting. I want to interject thought since the thought of Rodney King was interjected by the author. Before Rodney King's trial, there was a young girl who was going to buy something in a Korean store. She got angry, put the item on the counter, turned and walked away and was shot in the back. The Korean lady was acquitted. So it was not that Mr. King did not get justice, it was the culmination of injustices in cases that seemed to be slam dunks, but turned out to be jaw dropping miscarriages of justice. Thus, my favorite person in the book is the informer. Excellent.

a decent listen to

the author/narrator tells a fantastic tale that unwinds itself and leaves you wanting more.this book has been well researched and is easy to follow.The media tells one story but the author goes beyond the narrative that media was trying to sell to the gullible.
