Beschreibung:

In the tradition of bestselling legal memoirs from Johnnie Cochran, F. Lee Bailey,Gerry Spence, and Alan Dershowitz, John Henry Browne's memoir, The Devil's Defender, recounts his tortuous education in what it means to be an advocateand a human being.For the last four decades, Browne has defended the indefensible. From Facebook folk hero "e;the Barefoot Bandit"e; Colton Moore, to Benjamin Ng of the Wah Mee massacre, to Kandahar massacre culprit Sgt. Robert Bales, Browne's unceasing advocacy and the daring to take on some of the most unwinnable casesand nearly win them allhas led 48 Hours' Peter Van Sant to call him "e;the most famous lawyer in America."e;But although the Browne that America has come to know cuts a dashing and confident figure, he has forever been haunted by his job as counsel to Ted Bundy, the most famous serial killer in American history. A drug- and alcohol-addicted (yet wildly successful) defense attorney who could never let go of the case that started it all, Browne here asks of himself the question others have asked him all along: does defending evil make you evil, too?
