Three recommended novels featuring lawyers

Scott Turow's new novel is Identical.

Noah Charney asked Turow to recommend three novels featuring lawyers for readers at The Daily Beast. One title to get the nod:
A Married Man by Piers Paul Read. This novel is currently out of print, but I can’t fail to mention it. It tells the story a British barrister, a criminal lawyer, in mid-life crisis. I read the book while I was in law school, and its combination of clever plotting and earnest reflection served as one of the models for what I was trying to accomplish when I wrote Presumed Innocent.
