It has been the most closely watched and controversial legal proceeding of our time, and Jeffrey Toobin has written the definitive history of what has become the trial of the century. Here is the whole story of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman and their aftermath, as it has never been told - rich in character, driven by the nonstop plot of a legal thriller, and nuanced by the foibles, vanities, and idiosyncrasies of its participants. Featuring a new chapter on the O.J. Simpson civil trial, The Run of His Life - hailed by The Wall Street Journal as "the pick of the litter" - is a breathtakingly paced narrative that will long outlast the daily headlines.
