Summary
  • "Mark Prothero, co-lead defense attorney who helped save Gary Ridgway from the death sentence, has written a book that reveals the true, inside story of exactly how an idealistic public defender, high school swim coach, husband, and dad could bring himself to spend many months of close confinement with a man who brutally murdered at least seventy-five young woman, often in the act of sex. Defending Gary shows how Prothero could reconcile these monstrous acts knowing the reality of this unassuming fellow Gary Ridgway, a mild-mannered, church-going, devoted husband, father, and former Navy man, with an IQ of around eighty-two and a longtime job as a truck painter from Auburn, Washington, near Seattle."
  • "Prothero's job was to zealously and ethically represent his client and protect his legal rights. To accomplish this, the author took a harrowing, two-year-long journey into the psychological recesses of a serial killer's soul to find out where Ridgway came from, how he thought, how he got away with the crimes for so long, and why he really did it." "Defending Gary utilizes Prothero's notes, original research documents, transcripts, and photographs that detail the suspenseful story of the author's search for the truth about a man who many people feel represents "the banality of evil."-Jacket
