I just have to start by saying that I didn't really follow the trial. I watched it when it was on in the morning shows and I watched some Dateline or 20/20 special.
I thought this was a great book. I took some of it with a grain of salt since it was written by the prosecution standpoint. I thought the investigation leading up to the trial were facinating since a lot of it was hearsay, inadmissable or left out at trial. It definitely didn't put Casey in any better light.
I guess Jose Baez wasn't as smooth of an attorney as I saw him protrayed. I guess it didn't matter since he still got a non-guilty for Casey. I thought that Jeff Ashton nitpicked a bit to much and found it irritating at times.
I thought I'd always like to be a juror in a trail but when trial was presented it made me think twice. It would be especially when it came to closing arguements. I would've been nodding off.
I really enjoyed the book and read it in a couple of days. The only downgrade on the star was when Jeff was dwelling on the outcome of of the jury and the constant comments about Joes Baez.
