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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Excellent Read"

    I read The Firm in one sitting when it was released in paperback. The story is fine and well told, but I read and listen to this book because the dialogue throughout is so well done.

    "A Thriller "

    I did not see the TV series, but this book is probably better. While it took the author awhile, the book was really exciting toward the end. I still gave it 5 stars.

    Story
    "So disappointing"
    What would have made The Firm better?

    A better narrator would have helped. He couldn't keep my interest.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Avery was my favorite character because he didn't pretend to be anyone else but himself.


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    I knew there was a reason I didn't want to listen to this book. I have heard Scott Brick read other books and he was fine, not my favorite. He didn't do justice to the book. He didn't add any emotion. He just read it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was disappointment with the reading of the store. I have seen the movie version which was very well done.

    "One of my favorites"

    The book itself keeps me hanging on every word. My commute to work goes much more quickly. His performance makes it even more exciting. I keep this one on my phone even when I rotate other books around

    "Great book."

    I couldn't put it down. The author's narrative allows you to experience what's happening at all time. Very detailed, but not boring. I highly recommend it

    Story
    "Kept me interested most of the time."

    The storyline was very interesting. At times I thought the story move kind of slow. There was some repetition which bored me. I wish the characters were developed a little more. But the intelligence of the main character and his way of negotiating was extremely interesting. I would definitely recommend this book.
