Attorney Barbara Holloway takes "Baby Killer" Kemmerman's case, but even the best defense may not be enough to combat incompetent lawyers and a right-wing press smear campaign

Blackwell North Amer
With this extraordinary novel, Kate Wilhelm returns to the marvelous milieu of Death Qualified, bringing us a page-turning legal thriller of the finest caliber.
After the harrowing events of Death Qualified, attorney Barbara Holloway isn't looking to take on any new courtroom cases - she's happy working from a booth in a cafe in one of Eugene's working-class neighborhoods.
But when the sister of "Baby Killer" Kennerman asks for help, Barbara reluctantly looks into matters...and finds that incompetent lawyers and a smear campaign from the local right-wing press are going to allow a killer to go free.
The deeper Barbara delves into the case, the more atrocities she finds - and the more she believes that the best defense may not be enough.
A gripping, poignant, and masterful courtroom novel, The Best Defense is a major new work from one of America's most popular writers.

I am not generally a fan of attorney stories but this one is absolutely riveting! As in most such stories, we don't always know what she is thinking or has discovered but her cross examination of witnesses is a wonder to behold. This is a keeper!
