No 3 in my all time best list - a quasi crime literary classic
I noticed another reviewer here mentioned an all-time best legal thrillers list. i'm not sure whether i've seen that list, but i thought i might do my own. however, i thought i'd include some classic crime thrillers, because thinking about my favourites many readers might in fact consider them to be more crime thrillers. so some of them are purely legal thrillers, some purely crime, and some crossover between the two. i'm sure having finished the list, i'll think of some i've missed out - so look out for either an expanded top-twenty list, or a lot of joint twos, threes and fours. 1. to kill a mocking bird - harper lee. 2. past imperfect - john matthews. 3. mystic river - dennis lehane. 4. presumed innocent - scott turow. 5. the client - john grisham. 6. tell no one - harlan coben. 7. silence of the lambs - thomas harris. 8. the emperor of ocean park - stephen l. carter. 9. no time for goodbye - linwood barclay. 10. the poet - michael conelly.
