Pat, it's been some years since I read Presumed Innocent but I do recall enjoying the book. It does fall within the "attorney as protagonist" genre, although better written than Grisham (IMHO). I agree with others on the list who find legal thrillers less than thrilling. I also find the American Public's apparent love affair with attorney-heros very odd given how much lawyers are generally reviled by the same folks who buy all of these bestsellers. Go figure.
