Publisher's Summary

At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. 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.

    "Great Narration, and unique plot."

    Good narrator but I recognized remants taken from other books. Plot was unique. A real rollercoaster ride.

    Any additional comments?

    I bought this on a whim as I had just been listening to Steven Kings book “On Writing” where he describes The Firm as worth a reading.

    OK think I, it’s on special offer at £5.99 and I could do with listening to a good thriller and that is exactly what I got. 48 hours and a couple of marathon listens and I complete the audio book.

    I had to find out what happened next every step of the way. I know there are lots of clichés blah, blah, blah, but as pure entertainment it is great. Trash but good trash. There is a reason why this is one of the all-time bestselling paperbacks and I will give another of his books a try.

    "A good listen but a weak ending"

    I enjoy John Grishams works. I'm going over each of them in audible. I enjoyed the characters in this book and the buildup but perhaps found the ending a tad disappointing. I'd like to have seen more of Mitch on the run and surviving before the big reveal. Still 4/5 though as it kept me thinking for a while and had moments where I didn't want to stop listening. Recommended.

    "Great book -"

    Keeps you thinking the whole way through. The ending could be a bit more detailed, it was built up a bit too much. Overall great!

    "So much better than the film"

    Loved it. A real page-turner. Story and characters are great, so much better than the film.

    "Great story"

    Loved the story. Read the book years ago and decided to listen. Shame thé narrator felt the need to give every sentence an exclamation mark. He should get lessons in narration.

    "Rather drawn out"

    I really found this rather tedious - I made it to about chapter 29, then skipped to the end, this is something I very rarely do - I am more likely to dump a book if I am struggling. However, this did have something that retained my interest - the characters were 'OK' and the tension created by the various situations was good - but too drawn out and tedious in describing certain activities.

    In the event - I wasn't very impressed by the ending either!
