The tension of the crowded courtroom, jaded DAs and surprise witnesses, stunning defenses and divided juries -- all manner of legal twists and dramatic turns fill the pages in this anthology of legal thrillers featuring writers like Graham Greene, Mark Leyner, and Irwin Shaw, who in past decades have defined this popular genre, as well as those redefining it today. Andrew Vachss, John Grisham, Scott Turow, Joe R. Lansdale, Carolyn Wheat, Ian Creasey, Michael Mallory, and other established talents in the crime and mystery fields offer gripping, masterful tales that explore the complex and unpredictable world of the judicial system.
