Publisher's Summary

Mitchell McDeere, raised in the coal-mining region of rural Kentucky, has worked hard to get where he is: third in his class at Harvard Law. He's young. He's bright. He's ambitious. Mitch could have his pick of the big firms in New York and Chicago, but he's chosen the Memphis tax firm Bendini, Lambert, & Locke. They're selective. They pay outrageous salaries. They have a turnover rate of zero. And Mitch is about to find out why. Several events fuel Mitch's suspicions: 2 of the partners die in a suspicious diving accident off Grand Cayman; the senior partners seem unduly proud of the fact that no one has ever resigned; and security measures at the office are, even for a company with billionaire clients, more than a little extreme. Then Mitch makes an explosive discovery: The firm is owned and operated by the most powerful organized crime family in Chicago. Even as Mitch discovers the truth, he finds himself caught between the FBI, who wants an informant inside the firm, and the firm itself, which will make him a very rich man - or a very dead one.

Simply Brilliant

John Grisham is a story weaver! I'm so impressed with his clever way of surprising us. A must have Fam!

A disappointing listen

I'm new to the world of audiobooks, and so purchased this without realizing it was the abridged version. That, combined with the cliched writing of Grisham in the first place, made this a chore to get through, so its being abridged turned out to be a good thing! The narrator wasn't up to the task of changing voices for all the different weird characters. All the women sounded ridiculous, and the West Indian who had a Russian accent was just too much for me.

Typical John Grisham superb story

Great story, i really enjoyed it, but if i could change anything, I'd get rid of the annoying 80s music. Don't need music in an audiobook!!!
