Often called "King of the Legal Thriller," John Grisham (b.1955) is a former (and now occasionally) practicing attorney and enormously successful author. In addition, several of his bestsellers have been made into equally successful movies. A Time to Kill (filmed in 1996) was his first legal mystery.
