Angry Christopher Darden has given a horrifying second-by-second, blow-by-blow account of how Nicole Simpson was murdered.
The fiery O.J. Simpson prosecutor says he knows Simpson did it - and he still dreams about someday confronting the ex-gridiron great with the truth.
"I want to tell him that I can see inside his heart," says Darden. "That I know what happened."
Darden, who never got the chance to cross-examine Simpson in court, details his shocking account of the murders of Nicole and pal Ron Goldman for the first time in his new book In Contempt.
It is a painstakingly bloody and terrible description of the nightmare which he says happened on the evening of June 12, 1994, outside Nicole's Brentwood condo - told in the exact words Darden wants to use if he ever faces off with Simpson.
Darden says he would tell Simpson how it all began - that a still seething Simpson went to Nicole's home carrying a knife after not being invited to a family dinner celebrating daughter Sydney's dance recital.
"You hit her with your fist, and with the knife handle right on the crown of her head," claims Darden. "Then you grabbed her by the arm and drove the knife deep in to her neck, four times. We've all seen those scenes a hundred times on TV.
"But you knew what to do. You were an actor. You had learned the correct way to kill with a knife: not stab, but draw the knife all the way through."...
"I'll bet you stared at her for a moment, slumped at the bottom of the stairs, as if she'd just fallen asleep. It was her fault, wasn't it? You owned her now. Completely. Forever."
Darden also claims in the book that Simpson was so arrogant after the not guilty verdict was read that he brazenly looked over at the victim's grieving families.
"He'd gotten away with it. He had told Nicole that he could kill her anytime, anyplace, and that he could get away with it. Well, he'd done it."
