Seven top books that show the real lives of lawyers

Alafair Burke's novels include the thriller Long Gone and the Ellie Hatcher series: 212, Angel's Tip, Dead Connection, Never Tell, and the newly released All Day and a Night. A former prosecutor, she now teaches criminal law and lives in Manhattan.

For Omnivoracious, Burke tagged her favorite "Lawyers are People Too" books. One title on the list:
The Firm, John Grisham
