RARA-AVIS: Re: RARA AVIS: good courtroom novels

A very good courtroom novel is Edgar Lustgarten's "A Case to Answer"
(1947), an early example of British noir and still one of the best. Lustgarten (1907-1978) was a well-known British criminologist , and "A Case to Answer", his most famous novel, had been written under a commission from Graham Greene, if I am not wrong, for the publishing house which Greene had been working for at that time.
