So what are Legal Thrillers? It is 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 - Please see below for the exciting Authors and Books in this genre we have in stock.
