Book 1 in the Firm series
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From the master of legal thrillers, a page-turning classic of “suit-and-dagger suspense” (The New York Times): At the top of his class at Harvard Law, Mitch McDeere had his choice of the best firms in America. He made a deadly mistake.
Don’t miss John Grisham’s new book, THE EXCHANGE: AFTER THE FIRM, coming soon!
For a young lawyer on the make, it was an offer Mitch McDeere couldn’t refuse: a position at a law firm where the bucks, billable hours, and benefits are over the top. He thought it was his dream job. Until it turned into his worst nightmare…
When Mitch McDeere qualified third in his class at Harvard, offers poured in from every law firm in America. Bendini, Lambert and Locke were a small, well-respected firm, but their offer exceeded Mitch’s wildest expectations: a fantastic salary, a new home, and the keys to a brand new BMW.
Except for the mysterious deaths of previous lawyers with the firm. And the FBI investigations. And the secret files.
Mitch soon realises that he is working for the Mafia’s law firm, and there is no way out – because you do not want this company’s severance package…
To survive, he will have to play both sides against each other, and navigate a vast criminal conspiracy that goes higher than he ever imagined.
