Abstract:

"For D.A., Mark Baker interviewed dozens of D.A.'s from big cities, small towns, and rural areas across the country, and it is their stories and their voices - by turns idealistic, tough, cynical, and hopeful - that make up this compelling collective portrait of the men and women whose responsibility it is to see that justice is served."--BOOK JACKET. "In D.A., prosecutors discuss what happens when idealism and high expectations run into reality - low pay, skilful defense attorneys, questionable evidence, and duplicitous witnesses. In candid and unflinching detail, they recall their most memorable cases, wins and losses, and how they keep going in spite of the sometimes chilling crimes they face in court."--Jacket.
