Actually Grisham was the only legal thriller writer that I enjoyed.
Name a favorite character from a Victorian novel?Mr. Rochester from Jane Eyre.
Mystery Genre -- The Ice House by Minnette Walters - novel about three ladies who find a body on their property and their interactions with the police regarding it, and why it happened. Walters is more interested in the motivations behind the people who committed the murder, and often they are the protagonists.
