Defense of an Other is a legal thriller that combines political fiction like Bryce Courtenay's The Power of One, southern storytelling, and the original Law & Order's gritty realism. One Friday, the life of a young lawyer named Matt Durant descends into every queer person's nightmare when he walks out of the wrong bar at the wrong time. Struggling with his attraction to other men, after a few beers, Matt works up the courage to visit a gay bar in the French Quarter to seek the comfort of conversation with strangers. But, unknown to Matt, the stranger he meets is deeply compromised. In an alley behind the bar, they're attacked and Matt kills one of their attackers. Arrested for murder and thrown in Orleans Parish Prison, Matt's then put on trial for murder.
