As host of Closing Arguments on Court TV and Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News, Nancy Grace has won legions of devoted fans with her intelligent, plainspoken approach to the law. A passionate advocate of victims’ rights and outspoken critic of the often circus-like atmosphere surrounding high-profile cases, Grace addresses the critical issues at the heart of the criminal justice system.

In Objection!, she takes on a host of controversial topics, including the all-too-common “blame-the-victim” defense, the imperiled jury system, the inescapable effect of celebrity factor on trials, and the debate surrounding the death penalty. Grace also offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at some of the country’s most explosive trials, including those of Scott Peterson, Robert Blake, Michael Jackson, and Martha Stewart.

About the Author
Author Nancy Grace

Nancy Grace abandoned plans to become a Shakespearean literature professor when her fiancé was murdered just before their wedding day. She attended law school instead, graduated, and then spent the next decade in inner-city Atlanta prosecuting violent crimes. She compiled a perfect record of more than one hundred felony prosecution victories at trial with no losses. In 1996 Grace joined Court TV and for the next ten years, covered major trials after cohosting Cochran & Grace with famed defense attorney Johnnie Cochran. One of television’s most respected legal analysts, she now hosts the top-rated HLN show Nancy Grace and serves as a legal expert for Nightline, 20/20, and Good Morning America.
