Legal Thriller

The legal thriller is a sub-genre of thriller and crime fiction in which the major characters are lawyers and their employees. The system of justice itself is always a major part of these works, at times almost functioning as one of the characters. In this way, the legal system provides the framework for the legal thriller much as the system of modern police work does for the police procedural.

As one might expect, lawyers don’t rate very high on the trust meter. As one of my characters said in Chapter 4 of The Grievance Committee–Book One, “Only fiction writers and lawyers get paid to lie.” So, can you trust a lawyer?
