MESA, Ariz. -- (KNXV) -- On Jan. 2, 2013 most people didn't know who Defense Attorney Kirk Nurmi was.
But, by the end of the month, the public defender was known around the world by his most infamous client, Jodi Arias, who became a worldwide obsession.
"Frankly, I was happy in my anonymity. Although I must admit I probably didn't value it as much as I should have at the time," writes Nurmi in his new book Trapped With Ms. Arias.
The book, which is the first of a trilogy, has less to do with the trial itself and instead focuses on what happened in the years leading up to trial including Nurmi's 2011 request to get off the trial.
