I initially picked up this book to read the Phillip Margolin title, The Jailhouse Lawyer. However, when I saw the other authors who had contributed to this anthology, I decided to read the entire book.
These are short stories about lawyers, written by lawyers, and enjoyed by anyone who picks up the book. If you are looking for quick reads, these short stories are for you. They manage to fill the need for a quick thriller-fix without taking too much time to get through.
I enjoyed each story in thi
Mysteries are my favorite genre of books and for some reason I really like the legal process as well. John Grisham remains one of my absolutely favorite and since he's an author in this book I was drawn to it. I was disappointed that John's story was the shortest one in this book but the rest of the authors are worth the read nevertheless.

Great collection of stories-I really liked that John Grisham's story was such a departure for him. I bought it at Wordsworth Books in Little Rock soon after it came out and Grif Stockley autographed my copy. His story, "The Divorce" remains my favorite, followed closely by "What We're Here For."
