In Mistrial of the Century: A Private Diary of the Jury System on Trial
, ex-juror Tracy Kennedy discloses what life was like for himself and his wife in the days leading up to the O.J. Simpson trial, and how it subsequently differed so much from their expectations.
In an up close and personal style, Kennedy reveals what happened during the trial and sequestration, a sequestration that turned the lives of a normal, happily married couple into an emotional hell. Much focus is given to the Kennedy's lives after Tracy's eventual dismissal from the jury, delving into the immense psychological impact the "Trial of the Century" has had on the couple and how they have chosen to deal with it.
Finally, Mistrial of the Century raises the thought-provoking question of who suffered the most during this trial and why the answer points to the jurors and not the defendant O. J. Simpson.
