    Story

    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. Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray -- doing 15 years in a Tennessee jail -- already knew. "You never get nothing for nothing."

    Mark says: "One of the best thrillers ever!"
    "Not a Grisham fan - this definitely an exception"

    Where does The Firm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Out of a couple of dozen I've listened to on Audible and as an avid reader all my 83 years it is a 8
    Remember that I was not a Grisham fan. I chose to listen because Scott Brick is an exceptional narrator and I have chosen other novels because he has been the narrator.I never saw the movie but remember that it was a great hit at the time of its release.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot did keep me wanting to listen and not put the book down but near the denoument it started to weaken and become more implausible. I found the ending trite after all the excitement and excellent building of suspense. But as we all know reading is very subjective and another reader/listener may feel entirely different about my last statement. Mr Brick made it sound almost plausible with his excellent reading but I felt that the writer was struggling to please his audience.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As I have said earlier I have chosen to read an authour who is new to me or who I have not been to excited about simply because Scott Brick was the narrator. Sufficeth to say he is superb as always and I rate him #1 amongst his field.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not particularly but as said before it held my attention while I was listening.


    Any additional comments?

    My favourite authours are David Baldacci, Stuart Woods, and Jeffrey Deavers Lincoln Rhimes series.
    I had not seen the film The Firm and will not spoil my enjoyment of the book by seeking it out now. The only book I ever read and the movie industry didn't foul it up in some way was The Hunt for Red October!
