This book really held my attention with it's perfect mix of suspense, action and mystery. Definitely a page turner I couldn't put it down until I found out the ending then came the disappointment. I think the ending was pretty weak comparable to the writing of the previous pages.
The best is what got me started on Grisham
Young law school graduate, Mitch McDeere, is wooed by a small Memphis law firm. Even though he has several job offers, he happily signs on with Bendini, Lambert, and Loche, who give him a nice salary, a new BMW, a low-interest mortgage, and they pay off his school loans. They also tell Mitch that if he works hard, he will be made a partner in a few years. As Mitch works eighteen-hour days at the firm, he is approached by the FBI. They tell him that the firm launders money for the mob. They also tell him that the only lawyers to ever leave the firm left in body bags. Mitch tries to keep his distance from the FBI, but soon quickly discovers that the only way out of this mess it to start turning over information that can get him killed.
I read this book nearly 30 years ago, so I figured it was time for a re-read. This is a classic legal thriller with lots of twists and turns. This book was just as good as it was the first time around. I highly recommend. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
good book and the movie was good all soo
At the top of his class at Harvard Law, Mitch McDeere had his choice of the best in America, but he made a deadly mistake.
He signed on with a law firm in Memphis, and the company took care of everything from his mortgage, school loans, and expensive car. "You never get nothing for nothing," as his brother has told him. Now, the FBI needs his help to expose the firm, and Mitch faces the ultimate dilemma, the life-or-death decision....A movie was made of the novel, starring Tom Cruise.
Audio book on 2 cassettes.
A Grisham classic. Setting is 10 years before the tv show "The Firm" which is also a delight!
Real page turner. Couldn't put it down.
One of the best books I've read. I couldn't put it down!
