White provides the most comprehensive scholarly compilation of fictional work of legal suspense in existence. Almost 2,000 annotations and biographical synopses of major American, British, and European authors make this a unique reference work and essential acquisition for both the scholar of popular culture and the general reader. In addition, its appendices--such as Series Characters, References, and Craft Notes by novelists and trial lawyers--are certain to make this the definitive source of reference for courtroom drama in English or translation.

This was the first bibliography and guide to the American mass market paperback book, and it remains one of the most definitive. The major index is by author, and lists: author, title, publisher, book number, year of publication, and cover price. The title index lists titles and authors only. The publisher index provides a history of that imprint, with addresses, number ranges, and general physical description of the books issued. This is the place that all study of the American paperback must begin.
