For the first time, Gacy’s lawyer and confidant tells his chilling tale of how he defended an American serial killer.
“Sam, could you do me a favor”
So it 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. It is a thrilling courtroom drama in which Grisham, Turow or Martini would take great pride in.
