Michael Burton | 2686 comments Has anyone read any legal thrillers recently written by new authors you can recommend. I am looking for a new book to read. Any suggestions?

Belle Blackburn | 19 comments Have you gone through the bookshelf?


message 3: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (melissafl) | 33 comments I just finished "The Mental Case" by John Ellsworth who was new to me. I would certainly read more of his books.


message 4: by Renee (new)

Renee (rys00) It doesn't spend a lot of time in the courtroom, but Forty Acres was pretty great. There are two lawyers at the center of it all and it presents some interesting questions, but it's also a great thriller.

Hi Belle,

Yes I have. I put all the books on the shelf. I am looking for anything that may have come out just recently. I should have put that in my original post.

Michael Burton | 2686 comments I'll add The Mental Case, Forty Acres and Collision Course to the shelf. Thanks for the suggestions.

Got to love John Lescroart.


message 13: by Jean (new)

Jean | 59 comments I love, love, love John Lescroart. He has so many wonderful characters, and I love how he has created spinoff novels using Wes, Abe, and others as lead characters. Diz is my favorite, though.


message 14: by David (new)

David Jarrett (davidrj) | 16 comments Lescroart isn't exactly an "up-and-coming" author. He's been around for some time.

Pete Morin | 123 comments To riff off a line from Erma Bombeck, I thought I was up and coming until I got up and went.

Do you think Lescroart is a common name in the thriller genre? I have heard from other people that they don't know his works.

He is on my legal thriller TBR and I am going to nominate one of his in the August BOTM:

The Color of Law The Color of Law (Scott Fenney #1) by Mark Gimenez

Manning Wolfe (manningwolfe) | 284 comments Thanks for the head's up on The Common Lawyer - I snagged it too. I read The Perk a few months back and was able to interview Mark Gimenez about my publishing path. He was really generous with his time. I really liked The Perk partly because it was set in Fredericksburg (near Austin where I live). It had a good plot and interesting characters.


message 22: by Manning (new)

Manning Wolfe (manningwolfe) | 284 comments I recommend Mark Pryor. I particularly liked The Reluctant Matador and have The Bookseller on my to read list. His Hugo Marston is a security guy at the American Embassy in Paris and travels around Europe solving mysteries - thriller/mystery combo. Pryor is an assistant D.A. here in Austin. Happy Reading.
