"THEIR WORD IS LAW has something for every type of reader. Whether you enjoy traditional mysteries or literary fiction, you will be enlightened by the words of these authors. Stephen Murphy probes each author about his or her techniques, influences, and styles. His questions bring out details that illuminate not only the author's work, but also the author's life and influences. In only a few thousand words, Murphy manages to paint a picture of each subject as a lawyer, author, and human being. After reading these interviews, you will be struck by an urgent desire to read the author's books. I know I was."
