Summary

For more than twenty-five years Marissa Batt has tried cases ''for the People'' in the Criminal Courts Building in downtown Los Angeles, cases ranging from rape and sodomy to armed robbery and murder. Despite her years immersed in violence and its concomitant pain and suffering, this feisty, fiery prosecutor has never become hardened or jaded. She has an unshakable belief that justice prevails, whether it happens inside or outside a courtroom. ''You may think you know the justice system,'' she writes, ''because you read the papers, listen to the radio, and watch television. But what you get is information that is filtered, distorted, and incomplete.''
