The law student was young and had his dreams. He’d qualified third in his class at Harvard, now offers poured in from every law firm in America.
The firm was small, but well respected. They were prepared to match, and then exceed, Mitch’s wildest dreams, eighty thousand a year, a BMW and a low-interest mortgage.
Soon the house, the car and the job were his. Then the nightmares begin: the secret files, the bugs in the new bedroom, the mysterious deaths of colleagues, and the millions of dollars of mob money pouring through the office into the Cayman Islands, dollars that the FBI would do anything to trace.
I have read almost all of John Grisham’s books, and The Firm is my favourite. Mitchell McDeere is a young law student fresh out of Harvard and joins a unknown law firm in Memphis. He soon discovers that there is more to the firm than is first obvious, they are a major money launderer for mob. Mitch is stuck between a rock and a hard place. On the one side The Firm who will kill anyone who they think could expose them. On the other the FBI who want Mitch to put his neck on the line and take the firm down from the inside.
