Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of best-selling legal memoirs from Johnnie Cochran, F. Lee Bailey, Gerry Spence, and Alan Dershowitz, John Henry Browne's The Devil's Defender recounts his tortuous education in what it means to be an advocate - and a human being.
For the last four decades, Browne has defended the indefensible. From Facebook folk hero the "Barefoot Bandit" Colton Moore, to Benjamin Ng of the Wah Mee massacre and Kandahar massacre culprit Sergeant Robert Bales, Browne's unceasing advocacy and the daring to take on some of the most unwinnable cases - and nearly win them all - has led 48 Hours' Peter Van Sant to call him "the most famous lawyer in America." 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 infamous serial killer in American history.
Browne, a drug- and alcohol-addicted yet wildly successful defense attorney who could never let go of the case that started it all, here asks himself the question others have asked him all along: Does defending evil make you evil too?

Interesting subject matter.

Joe Barrett was the perfect narrator for this book. He made it sound like he was the person who experienced the thoughts and emotions of the writer. And the author, John Henry Browne, sure can make dull court cases into an enthralling story. I felt personally involved with Ted Bundy in particular. Totally enjoyed it.

Great but new details of crimes preferred.

This is a good read by a good man. I had hoped though that being Bundy's Lawyer, he would have elaborated and offered some never before released details of Ted's awful crimes.

Despite his strong beliefs against the death penalty, I still struggle to see how he could have not shown his disgust to Ted personally more openly and directly. Ted respected him, and so perhaps would have made an impact on Ted. I would like to have heard Ted's responses.

An amazing Lawyer, it seems, and with a level of intelligence most of us wish we could have been born with.
