Attorney-author Michael Kahn argues for his favorite legal thrillers

Trial attorney and author Michael Kahn used to respond to his wife Margi the same way every time she asked about the book he was reading. I could write a better one, he would say.

Finally, she had had enough.

“Then write one,” she finally said, “or please shut up.” So he shut up-no easy task for an attorney-and then he wrote one.

He started writing. He created a character, attorney Rachel Gold, and now has her in eleven novels. He has also written three stand-alone novels and several short stories. His writing has collected numerous awards. And he still practices law.

So when Kahn tells us about his favorite legal thrillers, we might pay some attention. He has done so in an article in CrimeReads.com: Legal Thrillers for Literary Snobs | CrimeReads

His list is a surprising one because the works he cites are not normally thought of as legal thrillers.
