Defending the Devil: My Story as Ted Bundy's Last Lawyer is a 1994 nonfiction book written by American lawyer Polly Nelson, who was a member of serial killer Ted Bundy’s legal defense team from 1986 to his execution in 1989. It was published by William Morrow & Company.
Nelson sued novelist John Grisham in 1995, alleging his book The Chamber had striking similarities to her work. After Grisham prevailed in a lower court ruling in 1996, the case was dismissed on appeal in 1997.
