Author Ted Johnson’s muse is his law practice in downtown Atlanta. He is a criminal defense attorney who defends the rights of those who many people think don’t deserve rights. The diary he keeps is his catharsis. “Faces I have Seen — A Memoir of Murder” is a collection of 25 short stories about the murder cases Johnson has tried — taken directly from Johnson’s diary.
“You think you’ve seen evil?,” Johnson asks. “Wait until you’re sitting next to it. You'd want to run home and take a shower.”
