Amazon.com said of Evidence
Dismissed, The Inside Story of the Police Investigation of O.J. Simpson, it “is one of those as-told-to
books, the tellers being Detective Tom Lange and Detective Philip Vannatter, who led the investigation into the murders of
Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. Here, free from the constraints of courtroom procedure, cross-examination, and public
relations spin, they present their side of the story, including much evidence that never saw its day in court.
Detectives Lange and Vannatter took
a lot of flak during the first Simpson trial and in the barrage of books that followed. In Evidence Dismissed they have their
revenge by pointing out errors in the prosecution's case and getting in a few digs at the defense attorneys. As told to
Dan E. Moldea, a veteran crime reporter, this latest insider story sheds some new light on the behind-the-scenes activity
surrounding the most recent Trial of the Century.”
