              When Baltimore public defender Anton J.S. Keating got a note from his boss that he was assigned to represent accused killer James Francis Smith, he couldn't imagine how the case would affect him. Keating was used to defending murderers, but something about this sociopath who prey...ed on innocent women would haunt him in a way other clients didn't. Room for Rent tells the surprising story of con man and killer, James Francis Smith, the 1970s version of a Craigslist Killer, who preyed on older women offering rooms for rent. His elaborate con would cheat women out of money, but those who lost only money were the lucky ones. Doris Martin lost her life. Martin's murder is the case that would bring Smith into Keating's life. What the two men had in common was the ability to maneuver their way around the criminal justice system to achieve the results they want. What would set them apart is their ability to live with the results.

              Even though she was still married to her fifth husband, Tina, an ex-prostitute from Las Vegas, rehearsed for her sixth wedding to a wealthy Maryland businessman, Robert Myers. Myers wanted his wife killed. Divorce was too expensive. Tina had proposed a blood vow. You marry me and... take care of my kids, and I'll have your wife murdered for you. He agreed. This is the true story of the brutal 1979 contract murder of Mary Ruth Myers, the 27-month long investigation of that murder, and the prosecution of the three co-conspirators. It led to the longest murder trial in the history of Maryland. The only plea offer was death in the gas chamber or by lethal injection. After a stunning double-cross by Myers' original attorney, Phillip M. Sutley, Esq., Myers' new attorney, Anton J.S. Keating, Esq. is left to try to salvage a defense and save him from the gas chamber. Myers had actually confessed his guilt to Mr. Keating, so avoiding the death penalty was even more complicated. Keating shares his insights into the tactics, strategies, thought processes and personalities of the participants in the Myers case, and the criminal justice system in Maryland. In addition, treats readers to a glimpse into his own history as a boy growing up in England during and after World War II, and into the lives of his close and colorful family. Finally, through the lens of the sentencing phase of the Myers trial, Keating outlines the history of the death penalty, articulating some of the most poignant and powerful arguments against it. The function of the criminal law is to protect the law-abiding - not to satiate societies' lust for revenge, testified Father Meyer Tobey, Chaplain for Maryland Death Row inmates. In the end, Anton J.S. Keating, Esq. was himself put on trial, as he suspected he would be from the very beginning.
