Eight of the best workplace thrillers

Michelle Frances's new novel is The Temp.

One of eight top workplace thrillers she tagged at CrimeReads:
The Firm, by John Grisham

An utterly terrifying book where the sense of entrapment gets your heart pounding from the minute you realize just how cleverly Mitch’s bosses have trussed him up. Then follows a game of cat and mouse that has you turning the pages furiously to see who will outwit the other and whether Mitch can get out of his job alive. Written by a true master, this is one of my all-time favorites, that I can read again and again and it never loses its grip.

The Firm is among Jamie Kornegay's five top novels with criminals covering their tracks and Alafair Burke's seven top books that show the real lives of lawyers.
