Synopsis: "IMPOSSIBLE TO PUT DOWN."
--Minneapolis Star Tribune
Teddy Wendover is a hulking twenty-eight-year-old with the mind of a child. An accident at eight left him severely retarded. But did it turn him into a cold-blooded killer?
Someone has bludgeoned Oregon congressman Harry Knecht to death. Knecht was the man who organized the ill-fated field trip that led to Teddy's injury.
Two more murders convince defense attorney Barbara Holloway that there's a broader circle of guilt. Before staging a dramatic courtroom performance, she must sift through dead ends, hearsay, and veiled clues--only to discover that truth is more dangerous than speculation . . . .
"AN UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review
"AN ACTION-FILLED THRILLER . . . [with] suspense, action, and tough, intelligent characters."

From the Publisher:
It was a very lucky day for me when Kate Wilhelm came into the office. I found her so charming, I couldn't wait to read one of her books, and I started with FOR THE DEFENSE. It is, quite simply, a wonderful book with engaging characters and an unique and intricate plot that kept me guessing to the very (unpredictable) end. I immediately read all Kate's other books, and now look forward to each new one.
Tanya Thompson, Executive Assistant
