It's a shame I only just found this post, I would have loved to have checked this out.

I'm reading Lifetime Loser by James Ross and it's really inspiring me to know all there is to know about the legal thriller genre. James writes his novel like an early John Grisham, riveting and complete with all the deceit, corruption, and sleazy characters you need to keep the pages turning.
