670 ## - SOURCE DATA FOUND

  • Source citation: Herald, D. Genreflecting, 2006:
  • Information found: p.141 (Legal thrillers are crime stories featuring a lawyer, law student, or judge as the main character. Although they include some detective work, typically these courtroom dramas involve the ingenuity of the attorney in extricating himself or herself from a setup or significant legal troubles threatening his or her law firm and personal integrity.) p. 170 (The legal thriller achieved great prominence in the 1990s. Scott Turow, John Grisham, and Steve Martini all made it to the bestseller lists with their crime novels that feature lawyers. However, the legal thriller's emphasis is not necessarily on detection but rather the crafty attorney's abilities to extricate himself, herself, or others from danger.)

680 ## - PUBLIC GENERAL NOTE

  • Explanatory text: Fiction in which the reader is kept on tenterhooks by plots that feature a build-up of suspense, tension, uncertainty, menace, and anxiety.
