REVIEW Defending the Devil: My Story as Ted Bundy's Last Lawyer

REVIEW ✓ Defending the Devil: My Story as Ted Bundy's Last Lawyer Ý As a brand new lawyer Polly Nelson was offered serial killer Ted Bundy's case as a pro bono project for her prestigious Washington DC law firm just weeks before he was scheduled to be executed Defending the Devil is a uniue and candid look at thHer compassion for human life and the inhuman crimes her client had committed Through the obstacles and setbacks faced by Nelson there was Ted Bundy himself While his crimes show the extremely violent side of his personality there were many other sides many other extreme sides that the public never saw Ranging from shy and defensive. I can't decide if the author is bravely honest or self serving and a little nuts Maybe both More interesting for the insight it provides into his ordinary humanness than anything else Despite the fact that she argued sincerely it seems his lack of competence he does not come across as insane Unlikable self serving disturbed and disturbing yes but not insane Detailed legalese weighs the narrative down Reads like a rough draft or a journal instead of a complete and fully formed book but in some ways is all the fascinating for it

Polly Nelson ¼ 1 REVIEW

To a narcissistic performer Bundy professed his innocence by day while offering confessions to the police and helping the FBI at night His own worst enemy Bundy seemed never to understand the severity of his crimes the punishment or the public's reaction to them Through it all stood Nelson defending him from both the system and himse. Loved this While it wasn't what I hoped I was pleasantly surprised It tended to focus on the law side and on Mrs Nelson's life at the time which I should've expected and not much on the crimes It's a good read if you're interested in law or in the processes of law with true crime I also loved the pictures throughout the thank you cards death warrant and the pictures of crowds from his execution

Defending the Devil My Story as Ted Bundy's Last LawyerAs a brand new lawyer Polly Nelson was offered serial killer Ted Bundy's case as a pro bono project for her prestigious Washington DC law firm just weeks before he was scheduled to be executed Defending the Devil is a uniue and candid look at the Bundy case and at Nelson's three year personal battle to balance her duties as a lawyer. This book covers the Ted Bundy story from a different angle It describes the 3 year battle Polly Nelson had as Bundy's lawyer to try and change his death sentence to a life sentence She argued that Bundy was actually a manic depressive who should not have been allowed to represent himself during his trial He was incompetent in this role and ended up sabotaging his own case His guilt was never in uestion just a man's right to live At times it became bogged down in legal jargon but this was to be expected as it was written by a lawyer Overall it offers a uniue insight into Bundy in his final years An interesting read
