For a young lawyer on the make, it was an offer he couldn't refuse: a position at a law firm where the bucks, billable hours, and benefits are over the top. It's a dream job for an up-and-comer--if he can overlook the uneasy feeling he gets at the office. Then an FBI investigation plunges the straight and narrow attorney into a nightmare of terror and intrigue, with no choice but to pit his wits, ethics, and legal skills against the firm's deadly secrets--if he hopes to stay alive . . .

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Frank Wilem | 2/14/2014

    " One of Grisham's best. Liked it a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Randilyn | 2/14/2014

    " I've picked quite a few page-turners to read over Christmas break, and this was no exception! I decided to give Grisham another chance even though I was less than impressed with the last one I read. This was better... and it's safe to say that I'd probably read another Grisham someday. Good for McDeere for outsmarting not only the FBI but also the mafia--and managing not to get his loved ones killed. But too bad I couldn't respect him as a character after he cheated on his wife--and then lied to her at the end. And WHY were all the portrayals of the female characters so degrading?! Maybe I'm oversensitive, but I felt Grisham overdid the woman-sex-symbol thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mick Bose | 2/6/2014

    " I became a John Grisham fan after reading this book - and this book launched his career. Key to this book is the sudden and dramatic shift around the latter third - when Mitch and his wife go from being victim to hatching a brilliant plan to take on the criminals. From then on its nail biting reading...reminded me of Day of the Jackal in some ways. "

    " This is my favorite Grisham novel to date. "
