There is still time for last-minute holiday shopping; indeed, for some of us, all the time we have is at the last minute. So here are five books sure to delight the readers in your midst.

Scott Turow never disappoints. He is, to my mind, the premiere writer of legal fiction. His latest, “Ordinary Heroes” (Farrar, Giroux, Strauss, New York, 2005, $25) is a sign that Turow has outgrown the genre. Turow wants a broader canvas, and he has found one. Stewart Dubinsky learns troubling truths about his father’s role in the Second World War. He doggedly pursues answers in this well-written work spanning decades. Say goodbye to Turow as lawyer-writer. Turow seeks a place among the belles lettres elite. If he hasn’t quite found it in this book, he soon will. Turow is first and foremost a writer. He is finding a new and subtler voice.
