WHEN IN DOUBT FOR THE DEFENDANT
Burkhard Benecken and Hans Reinhardt, two of Germany’s most famous criminal defense lawyers, give an insight into their day-to-day professional lives while negotiating the big questions of guilt and morality. A highly exciting work of non-fiction in the best true-crime style.
What is it like to stand on the side of and fight for alleged criminals on a daily basis? Through powerful case histories, the authors demonstrate the tools of criminal defense while discussing the questions everyone has asked themselves at least once in their lives: Does a multiple murderer deserve a fair trial? Is the alleged thug innocent if he is acquitted because of procedural errors? A fascinating look into the world of the advocates of evil.
