        Never tried Turow, tried a Grisham and thought it was just how you described this Turow.

        I did finish a decent legal thriller last week that I thought some of you hard-boiled fans might appreciate. It's called The Judge. The author is Steve Martini.

The climax was cookie-cutter, but most ending disappoint me. It's an easy read. Give it a try.
