He decided to apply that approach to real estate and look what happened!» –Kendra Todd, winner of The Apprentice

At first, Mark Prothero, Defense Attorney for Gary Ridgway, thought: «This can't be the Green River Killer! He's too ordinary! He's too small. He's too calm. He's too polite! He can't possibly have murdered forty-nine women. They can't be serious! They must have screwed up! I didn't realize then, but I was right. Gary Ridgway hadn't killed forty-nine women. He'd killed even more than that.» Soon, Mark Prothero faced the question: «How could you possibly defend the most prolific serial killer in United States history, the infamous Green River Killer? If anyone deserved to be executed for his crimes, didn't he?» Mark Prothero, co-lead defense attorney who helped save Gary Ridgway from the death sentence, has heard that question many times. Now he’s written a book that reveals the true, inside story of exactly how an idealistic public defender, high school swim coach, husband, and dad could bring himself to spend many months of close confinement with a man who brutally murdered at least 75 young women, often in the act of sex. Defending Gary shows how Prothero could reconcile these monstrous acts knowing the reality of this unassuming fellow Gary Ridgway, a mild-mannered, church-going, devoted husband, father, and former Navy man, with an IQ of around 82 and a longtime job as a truck painter from Auburn, Washington, near Seattle.

The story mixes dreams with realities as this simple Jewish woman dances with famous Hollywood personalities as she travels the world. Is it real or fantasy? True or not, Clarice’s life is tied to numerous stars of the 1940's and 1950's. Clint Eastwood, Barbra Streisand, Tony Curtis, Dorothy Malone, Rock Hudson, and many others are among those who play a role in this true tale of one person's search for life's joy and happiness. This book is a love story between two sisters on a journey of often unimaginable events. What greater accomplishment than having given everything you have within yourself, never expecting anything in return? Not a thank you, a kiss or even a hug, but rather simply the knowledge you have given with love. A Russian immigrant family comes to America in 1905, and amid much success, tragedy follows the failure of an arranged marriage. An attempted murder, suicide, fire, orphans, cancer... can things get any worse... or is there a story of overcoming adversity somewhere in this tangled mess.
