This book, sassy, surreal, and surprisingly personal, is mostly about Gacy's trial and Amirante's observations of his pathetic and sad' first client. . . .True crime aficionados will want to make a special place on their bookshelves for this unique-slant look at one of America's most notorious killers. How do you defend a madman accused of killing 30 young men and teenagers? That is the powerful theme of this book by a retired judge and criminal attorney whose first case was defending John Wayne Gacy. . . . What emerges is a deep probing into Gacy's mind as it unraveled into a "detached, disconnected" madness wrapped in a maze of sexual confusion and murderous intent. . . . Despite Amirante's hearty defense, Gacy got a death sentence (he was executed in 1994) and his account will illuminate the case for anyone fascinated by the inner workings of a serial killer. [T]akes us through all of the bizarre actions of his certifiably insane client, as well as the various twists and turns of the six-week trial. Hearing the defense attorney's side of things is a fascinating experience. Before Casey Anthony or O.J. Simpson, there was a trial of the century which was arguably more grotesque than the other two combined, especially when considering the body count . . . After more than 30 years, now-Judge Amirante is breaking his silence about the infamous case . . . [the authors] take pains to demystify the man who has been known as the Clown Killer" [and] paint a much more nuanced picture of a deeply conflicted man.Reseña del editor:
"Sam, could you do me a favor?" Thus begins a story that has now become part of America's true-crime hall of fame. It is a gory, grotesque tale befitting a Stephen King novel. It is also a David and Goliath saga-the story of a young lawyer fresh from the public defender's office whose first client in private practice turns out to be the worst serial killer in our nation's history. This is a gripping true crime narrative that reenacts the gruesome killings and the famous trial that shocked a nation.
