Summary :

Edited by: Michael Hemmingson

Tense dramatic scenes, accusation and confrontation, and plots full of surprising and shocking twists characterize this exciting collection of legal thrillers.

Here is some of the finest fiction starring the professionals who work on the inside of the complex world of the judicial system- the lawyers and attorneys, judges and police officers, and the private investigators, who work on the fringes. Then there are members of the public who get caught up in the due process of law such as unfortunate victms, witnesses or jurors. And, of course, the defendants, whether innocent or guilty.
