The Firm had never hired an unmarried lawyer, and it frowned heavily on divorce, as well as womanizing and drinking. At Bendini, Lambert & Locke, it was zero. Drug testing was in the contract. He was white, and The Firm had never hired a black. They managed this by being secretive and clubbish and never soliciting job applications. Other firms solicited, and hired blacks.

The five-story building had been built a hundred years earlier by a cotton merchant and his sons after the Reconstruction, during the revival of cotton trading in Memphis. It sat in the middle of Cotton Row on Front Street near the river. Through its halls and doors and across its desks, millions of bales of cotton had been purchased from the Mississippi and Arkansas deltas and sold around the world.

He waited for a moment in the hall, waited to be seen, but no one was there. He walked quietly ahead until, at the third classroom, he heard the wonderful voice of his wife. She was plowing through multiplication tables when he stuck his head in the door and smiled. She froze, then giggled.

He waited for a moment in the hall, waited to be seen, but no one was there. She excused herself, told them to stay in their seats and read the next page. What're you doing here?" she asked as he grabbed her and pinned her to the wall. She glanced nervously up and down the hall. I missed you," he said with conviction.

Mitch McDeere, a Harvard Law graduate, becomes suspicious of his Memphis tax firm when mysterious deaths, obsessive office security, and the Chicago Mob figure into its operations. (Adventure & Suspense).

This is one of the best books I've read this year. This story began simply enough: Mitch, a young man who grew up poor in the south without much family was very smart. He finished graduate school for his law degree in the top ten of his class and married his high school sweet heart. Although he'd intended to make the rounds of all the top places for attorneys, he quickly accepted The Firm's offer - partly because he and they seemed to click and partly because they said family was important to them. When he accepted their generous offer, they also told him they'd pay off his school debts so that it wasn't hanging over him. They leased him a BMW that he'd need to pay them back after he made partner in a few years.
Mitch did indeed work very hard for the firm, putting in longer hours than anyone. However, little by little, Mitch began trying to make sense of certain events - how and why were two of the firm's lawyers found dead in the Caribbean in the last year or so? Relatively soon, Mitch was approached by an FBI person who hoped to entice Mitch to turn over documents that they could use against the firm. Mitch was leery about that. The story continued unfolding with lots of ups and downs. We readers could guess but not really know how it would turn out until near the end of the final chapters.
*SPOILERS*As a legal minded reader who has his sights set on a career in law, John Grisham writes material that suits my eye. The way he incorporates aspects of a thriller into what should be a boring book about an otherwise inconspicuous law firm in sleepy Memphis, Tenn is nothing short of incredible. However, the best part of Grisham’s book wasn’t even necessarily the intensity of the situation that Mitch gets himself into as much as it was the stress he puts on the reader who’s living through it with him. He crafts the story so precisely that it becomes impossible to set the book down during the heat of the action.
Nowhere in the book is this demonstrated more obviously than the gripping “take the money and run conclusion” (Wall Street Journal). As we follow Mitch & Co running from the feds (for not turning over enough info on the mafia) and the mafia (for turning in too much info to the feds), I found it impossible not to keep turning the pages, and that’s what makes a good book great. A good book keeps me coming back, a great book doesn’t allow me to leave.
Overall, I found Grisham’s work nothing short of exceptional. If you’re into thrillers, I highly recommend it. 5 stars from a fellow thriller enthusiast.
The Firm (by John Grisham) tells the story of an innocent young Law graduate from Harvard who turns his back on his life long dream to work on Wall Street in order to join a small but well established and apparently incredibly wealthy firm in Memphis.

Starting salary: $100,000? Check. Brand New BMW? Check. Low Interest Mortgage for House Purchase? Check. And the biggie: College Fees paid off in full? Checkeroonie. If this sounds too good to be true, then guess what - it is! But our Mitch can't see the wood for the trees, as after years spent living on struggle street with his stunning girlfriend Abby, they think that all of their dreams have come true. They have, but the dreams in question will soon turn into nightmares involing the FBI, the mafia, black mail extortion, death threats.

For his first book, Grisham's writing style is a fascinating example of the modern day thriller. Negatively, I did not see any growth in the characters - physically or emotionally. There was, however, plenty of emotional resonance for the reader scattered throughout its pages. The ending was unsettling. It told me that by living in a modern, free society we are beset with risks; if you make the wrong choise at the wrong time then you may be forced to pay for this mistake for the rest of your life.

Even if you beat the bad guys.

So who says that good always overcomes evil?
Liked this book a lot. Lots of twists and turns. The main character started out sounding conceited and self centered. He soon took a turn that I did not see coming. Great character development and lots of thoughtful insight into nature of people and the greed that is prevalent in our society. '

I was a bit disappointed in the final couple of pages.... would have liked to see the main character's rehashing of the events and such. It left me rather flat on the last couple of pages.

I have recently begun rereading John Grisham’s novels. I had read John Grisham’s first novel “A Time to Kill” right after it came out just over 20 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. I went on to read many of his novels. When I learned that he had just released a sequel to “A Time to Kill,” I decided to reread that novel before reading “Sycamore Row.” After “Sycamore Row,” I was once more thoroughly hooked on his novels and decided to read “The Firm.”
I found “The Firm” to be totally engaging and a real page-turner. I have only a few minor criticisms. I was more than a little surprised when Tammy made that phone call from the condo. Surely, they should have known that calls might be monitored. Also, it was not clear to me when Mitch had been able to cobble together the transfer of money and the series of motels during their escape. Even so, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone interested in legal thrillers.
Being retired has allowed me now the luxury of going through a list of must read books. After seeing the movie years ago it brought this book to life especially with Tom Cruise as Mitch. There was not a good stopping point to take a break so I kept reading and reading. I experienced the same reading experience with Grisham’s A Time to Kill.
Good quick, light read. Like many novels of this type, starts out really good, then flares off. It goes from believable to very unrealistic. I did like the reading, it kept me drawn in and I finished the 500 pages in about 3 days, but I wouldn't say it's thought provoking. Also don't bother watching the movie after you read this, doesn't come close.
