Death and Justice: An Exposé of Oklahoma's Death Row Machine

by Mark Fuhrman

Controversy rages about capital punishment as innocent men and women are being released from death rows all over the country. Are innocent people being executed? Is capital punishment justice or is it revenge? Into the debate steps Mark Fuhrman, America's most famous detective, and no stranger to controversy himself. Fuhrman seeks to answer these questions by investigating the death penalty in Oklahoma, where a "hang 'em high" attitude of cowboy justice resulted in twenty-one executions in 2001, more than any other state. Most of these cases came from one jurisdiction, Oklahoma County, where legendary DA Bob Macy bragged of sending more people to death row than any other prosecutor, and police chemist Joyce Gilchrist was eventually fired for mismanaging the crime lab. Examining police records, trial transcripts, appellate decisions and conducting hundreds of interviews, Fuhrman focuses his considerable investigative skills on more than a dozen of the most controversial Oklahoma death penalty cases.

The Murder Business

by Mark Fuhrman

Crime stories fascinate the public. But between factual news stories, overblown "human interest" reports and salacious murder mystery exposés, it's difficult to tell where news ends and entertainment begins. Mark Fuhrman, best-selling author of Murder in Brentwood, explores this fine line and how it is increasingly being crossed, revealing new and shocking details on such highprofile cases as JonBenet Ramsey, Martha Moxley and Chandra Levy. In The Murder Business, Fuhrman argues that the media's approach to covering crime ("if it bleeds, it leads") has allowed many criminals to get away with murder and impeded the search for justice. The Murder Business presents a compelling plea for journalists, cops and citizens to demand higher ethical standards in the pursuit of justice.

Murder in Brentwood

by Mark Fuhrman Vincent Bugliosi

*Three months on the New York Times bestseller list*Twenty years ago, America was captivated by the awful drama of the O.J. Simpson trial. The Simpson "Dream Team" legal defense had a seemingly impossible task: convincing a jury that their client, a man the whole country had watched flee from police, was innocent of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. In order for O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, the defense attorneys had to destroy the reputation of Mark Fuhrman, a brilliant Los Angeles detective who knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that O.J. Simpson was guilty. Now Fuhrman tells his side of the story in a damning exposé that reveals why and how Simpson's prosecution was bungled. With Fuhrman's own hand-drawn maps of the crime scene and his reconstruction of the murders, Murder in Brentwood is the book that sets the record straight about what happened on June 12, 1994-and reveals why the O.J. Simpson trial was such a catastrophe.
