Novel Verdicts

A Guide to Courtroom Fiction
A non fiction book by

The advent of Court TV and the increasing news coverage of high-profile trials have pushed legal proceedings to the forefront of public interest today. Jon L. Breen has answered a growing demand for information with a second edition of Novel Verdicts: A Guide to Courtroom Fiction, a critical bibliography of courtroom fiction.

This new edition not only updates old annotations, but explores the literary response to new areas of focus and development that have emerged in the law since 1984. The original 421 entries have been retained among the 790 in the present volume, and Breen's guide also highlights a number of specialists who have recently emerged, including John Grisham, Steve Martini, William Bernhardt, Paul Levine, and Richard North Patterson.

Annotations provide general information about the author and indicate the proportion of trial action included in each book. A critical bibliography for librarians, lawyers and courtroom enthusiasts alike, Novel Verdicts is a useful and easy-to-use reference tool that captures the changes in the law as depicted in courtroom fiction.
