For the last four decades, the Seattle-based criminal defense lawyer has defended the indefensible. Taking on some of the most unwinnable cases--and nearly winning them all--with his unceasing advocacy and daring, he is still haunted by his job as counsel to Ted Bundy. Browne, a formerly drug- and alcohol-addicted defense attorney here traces the roots of his discontent as well as his dedication, asking himself the question others have asked him all along: Does defending evil make you evil too?

What attorney considers killing his own client?

Lawyer John Henry Browne defends those who he called "indefensible" including serial killer Ted Bundy.

He writes of Bundy :" I have never confessed this before, but sometimes I think I should have killed Ted in his Aspen cell after his first escape. If he was ever free again, it was inevitable that he would brutally take the lives of more innocents."
