Among his other books are: Too Close to Call: The 36-Day Battle to Decide the 2000 Election; A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal that Nearly Brought Down a President; The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson; and Opening Arguments: A Young Lawyer’s First Case: United States v. Oliver North.
