Robert Dugoni

Legal thrillers continue to grown in stature as a sub-genre, which makes writers such as Robert Dugoni particularly welcome. Hailed as a writer in the style of John Grishmam, Dugoni became a novelist after 12 years practicing law.

Not surprisgly, his characters are also lawyer and tend to have a jaded, almost burned-out attitude toward the law. His second legal thriller, Damage Control, was release recently and features a female attorney being battered by tragedy after tragedy. The book takes her and several others on a journey from abuse to empowerment.

Speaking of legal thrillers, I don't think I ever mentioned that we also have a review of Grisham's A Painted House on the site now too. Written by the Help Web family's intrepid leader, it is filled with tantalizing detail about the book. Here, may I tempt you with an excerpt?

The characters in A Painted House are John Grisham's strongest ever. Fully developed and interacting in plausible ways, Luke and his family are the centerpiece of a small Ozark region town decades ago. Wonder and innocence tangle with awe and weariness as the book's real conflict beyond the plot. These strong characters and their development allow Grisham to concentrate on basic, but also strong plots, blazing a path through time that allows the reader to luxuriate in the setting.
