Publisher's Summary

At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. But he made a deadly mistake. When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray - doing 15 years in a Tennessee jail - already knew. "You never get nothing for nothing." Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch's firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice - if he wants to live.

Critic Reviews

"Keeps the reader hooked... From the creepy first chapters... to the vise-tightening midsection and on to the take-the money-and-run finale." ( The Wall Street Journal)
"Irresistable...seizes the reader on the opening page and propels him through 400 more." ( Newsweek)

One of the best thrillers ever!

After reading this addictive mystery-thriller many years ago, I decided to revisit this story through the audiobook. This audiobook was amazing. Great reading. Riveting plot. Mitch McDeere, a Harvard law School star, takes a too-good-to-be-true job with a law firm in Memphis. Questions arise as the body count builds, and Mitch and his wife need to figure out what's going on and how to stay alive. Unlike so many thrillers these days, there is one plot, and it is strong enough to keep me glued to this story from start to end. I've read or listened to hundreds of books of this genre, and this is in a small handful of the most fun and very best. It is up there with Finder's "Paranoia" and Baldacci's" Absolute Power." If you are looking for the best escape-reading thriller, listen to or read "The Firm." I won't say more. I don't want to be a spoiler. If you haven't read or listened to "The Firm," do it!

The Firm is a CLASSIC!!!

I read The Firm in the 90's. it's always stuck with me, even the the movie wasn't very good. I decided to listen to the book that I read in 2 days 15 years ago, and I was hooked. I would sit in my car listening, take my Zune around and listen, it's just fantastic.

Shocking but terrific story

I've enjoyed a number of John Grisham books, but this has to be the best. It's a riveting story that kept me listening and returning to the recording as I couldn't wait to find out what happens next. The corruption described is shocking but, sadly, is believable. I was kept in suspense throughout by this juggernaut of a story.
The reader does a grand job.

Different to the screenplay

I was unsure whether or not to listen to this book as I love the film and didn't want to spoil that. However the plot is different enough that while you can recognise elements from the film it still has plenty of unexpected plot lines to keep you enthralled. I'm know happy to say that I thoroughly enjoyed both the film AND the book. Highly recommended.
