It’s not easy writing legal thrillers in a genre crowded by names like Sue Grafton, John Grisham and Carl Hiaasen. But Virginia native Martin Clark’s refreshing take on lawyers, the law and even love are redefining readers’ expectations of what a good legal mystery can be. A circuit court judge by day, Clark says he’s inspired by the quirky cases that come through his courtroom. But it’s his wry observations on the more mundane aspects of small-town life and language that keep readers turning pages. We talk with Clark about his new novel, “The Jezebel Remedy” and find out more about how he weaves his rich plots.
