If you were a sentient being in the summer of 1994, the image of O.J. Simpson's white Bronco traveling down the highway in Los Angeles may be forever burned into your brain, not to to mention the insane media coverage that followed over the subsequent months, in what would come to be known as the most infamous murder trial in the history of modern American criminal justice.
It's hard to believe it's been 21 years since the verdict. "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson", which premiered Feb. 2, 2016 on FX, revisits the notorious case. Created by Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story"), the show relies heavily on Jeffrey Toobin's book on the trial, "The Run of His Life", which was published in 1996. Though the show will undoubtedly be entertaining, it's worth remembering these are true events, violent crimes, with real victims.
Here are six essential books on the O.J. Simpson trial that will make you reconsider everything you think you know about the case.
