Any defense attorney who finds room to include more than one full-size photo of himself in swim trunks while consigning the photos of some of the Green River killer's victims to thumbnail-sized rows squeezed into two horrifying pages (noting that several other victims' photos have simply been left out) is perhaps not as much a victim of bad media and resentful families as he depicts himself here. The very premise of the book seems to be that it is Prothero and the Green River Killer himself -- and not the raped and murdered women -- who are to be pitied for being misunderstood. Morally repulsive and embarassingly self-indulgent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The person who wrote the last review must have been a cop. I've worked as a legal assistant for criminal defense attorneys for several years. If you want to know what it is like to defend the accused (innocent or not) then read this book. Mr. Prothero doesn't hold anything back, including the dark humor that develops around the office. Very interesting details about the case and about his work as a defense attorney. Also, Mr. Prothero constantly mentions the victims and their families. Defense attorneys never forget the victims, contrary to popular belief. I heard Mr. Prothero speak at Gonzaga University and for most of the presentation, he had the pictures of the victims behind him. Thank you, Mr. Prothero, for writing this book, and for your committment to fighting for justice.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
