    One thought on “The Devil's Defender: My Odyssey Through American Criminal Justice from Ted Bundy to the Kandahar Massacre

    1. Pouting Always on said:

      I always feel kind of disappointed after reading most memoirs and autobiographies but that never stops me from reading more of them for some reason. I was expecting this one to be more about his work as a lawyer but nope once again the book was more about his personal life. I'm not saying it wouldn't be interesting to read about people's personal lives in their autobiographies but you should be interweaving it with whatever your career is so that I can get a sense of the growth that came from yo [...]

    2. Travis Hutch Belushi on said:

      Mislead title. A waste of $35! Not worth the read, John Henry Browne could have written a whole book on Bundy with all that he knew though he didn't shed any new facts. It feels like john Henry Browne was writing a movie script with a bit part appearance by Ted Bundy. A complete bore, 10% of the book reflect on the Bundy saga, 10% reflects on some other cases and the rest is Brownes life story which I doubt people are at all interested in Brownes personal life.

    3. Nicola Mansfield on said:

      A very compelling book that had me turning the pages quickly. I've never read a lawyer's book before except ones by the prosecutor of a big case such as Vincent Bugliosi's books. But the thought of reading about the defending lawyer of people he knows are guilty, some of them having committed heinous crimes intrigued me. Why do these people do what they do if they are not just scumbags, too? John Henry Browne got me to read his book because he defends guilty people who will be facing the death p [...]

    4. Ann Ackermann on said:

      I was totally enthralled by this book, but need to give a caveat: I used to practice law in Seattle. I even worked on one of the cases in this book and knew several of the people Browne writes about. I can't recall ever having had the pleasure of meeting the author, although I certainly knew of his existence. Nevertheless, reading about cases and people I used to know makes the book far more interesting to me than to the average reader, and in that sense, I might not be the most objective review [...]

    5. William on said:

      I liked what he said about his trials, but I think that he is a despicable person based on his imparted info and what I have known about him. I know his type, same age and went to high school about five miles apart.

    6. Nickole H on said:

      Very interesting, lots of compassion for saving all lives. There is a lot of name dropping but the book was interesting enough that it didn't bother me like some other books I've read have.

    7. Ev Porter on said:

      I have read many books about Ted Bundy. I was sort of disappointed in this one. He went through many other cases of law that he had defended, which I guess is fine, but I wasn't interested in those or in his personal history and he spent almost more time covering other topics

    8. Carey on said:

      Not a description of all the crimes, motives, or actions of Ted Bundy. John Henry Browne tells the story of his career from his point of view, and seems to not want to bore us with the details.

    9. Melissa Embry on said:

      He’s defended some of America’s most notorious mass murderers, from Ted Bundy to a perpetrator of one of the West Coast’s biggest mass murders, to the U.S. soldier convicted of killing dozens of unarmed villagers in a night-long shooting spree in Kandahar, Afghanistan. And he’s done this since his own girlfriend was brutally murdered.How does criminal lawyer John Henry Browne justify his defense of such killers? Browne tells all, including his own struggles with drugs and alcohol, and wh [...]

    10. Jaynez on said:

      A very interesting book about the life and times of a very interesting man, who's a lawyer in the Pacific Northwest, where I live. I hope he's still in the Smith Tower. It's a lovely historic building in downtown Seattle. It suits Mr. Browne.I like John Henry Browne. I don't know if I always agree with him but he's a balls to the wall, what you see is what you get (" skeletons in the closet; they're on the front lawn."), humane, kind, and even vulnerable person/lawyer. I doubt he suffers fools g [...]

    11. Christina on said:

      Is braggadocious a word? Yeah, this guy thinks really highly of himself. That was very apparent throughout. It became more tolerable towards the end, but I could have done without all the gratuitous name dropping and “tooting of his own horn.” It is a short book, and yet took me almost 2 weeks to finish just because I started to loathe reading it. I’m painfully stubborn about never quitting any books I start, though, soh.

    12. Amie on said:

      Very interesting details about a number of high profile cases and how events in the author's own life led to him vigorously defending the seemingly indefensible. I really enjoyed this book and found it difficult to put down.

    13. Terry on said:

      wanted more insight into why of things, but still interesting insights.

    14. Shannon on said:

      Interesting read. I liked the content; it seemed honest and like a conversation with the author. It was recommended by a friend.

    15. Al Menaster on said:

      Excellent. Browne's notable and famous cases, especially Ted Bundy.

    16. Ellen on said:

      The writing was conversational and to-the-point; interesting insight into the workings of criminal minds. Browne's ego makes itself heard but he's aware of it and also comes across as humble, self-deprecating and compassionate. Oh, just saw this book listed: Defending the Devil: My Story as Ted Bundy's Last Lawyer by Polly Nelson, written in 1994! Wonder who's responsible for the title of Browne's book?

    17. Wade Williams on said:

      The author has a house in the town I visit every year so I was interested in reading his book. I really couldn't put it down, but it raised all sorts of moral questions for me. Choosing to become a defense attorney has to be a tough choice but I better understand that there are bigger issues he stood for that drove the decisions he made. Very interesting read.

    18. Danielle on said:

      This is a short book, for those of you who don't like 500+ books. I bought this hoping to learn more about Ted Bundy, serial killer psycho. However, maybe because I've read so much about Bundy and watched documentaries about him, I didn't find much that was new. I was hoping for something that would make me go "Oh my God!", but didn't. Even Ted's letters at the end of the book didn't do much for me. When I say do much, I mean surprise me. It's not a bad book, but I've read better.

    19. Bob Anderson on said:

      Another defense lawyer memoir, Browne’s is a more linear narrative than Cochran’s. He’s represented Ted Bundy (though not to completion), Seattle alleged mass murderer Benjamin Ng, and Robert Bales, who was convicted of massacring 16 Afghan civilians in his fourth tour of duty. Browne is deeply empathetic and passionate about resisting the death penalty, and he tells the stories of his various defenses very well. I am a tad concerned about how freely he reveals his conversations with Ted B [...]

    20. Cynthia Kauffman on said:

      Eh.From the hype I expected information about unsolved murders that could be attributed to Ted Bundy. I was disappointed on that front. The author has had an interesting career and life path. I found myself feeling this book was short on details of his other cases as well. Even as my mind switched gears from my expectations about Bundy to becoming interested in his other cases, I felt he could have gone into greater detail about those as well. Overall, it was an okay book and a quick read.

    21. ROBERT BOWIE on said:

      Naked vulnerabilityA fascinating study of the mind and struggles of an advocate for people who've, murdered people. Browne revealed more than is apparent by studying the record or observing him. Good struggle.

    22. Ron on said:

      I read this book because I need information on Bundy for a project. Unfortunately, I gained very little information. But even if you have an interest in all of the events, John skips around between chapters. The scattered narrative really pissed me off.

    23. Mike Green on said:

      John Henry Browne – The Devil’s Defender – Not great… Spends too much time on unrelated topics. Sounds pompous for the rest.
