Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction Goes to Thriller Writer Michael Connelly

The 2012 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction goes to thriller writer Michael Connelly for his book, The Fifth Witness.

The prize, which is sponsored by ABA Journal and the University of Alabama School of Law, is intended to recognize a work of fiction that “best exemplifies the role of lawyers in society, and their power to effect change.” 

The award is named after author Harper Lee, whose novel To Kill A Mockingbird, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961.
