When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought that he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired the McDeeres a decorator. Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray–doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail–already knew: You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice–if he wants to live.

Publishers Weekly Review

Feb 04, 1991 – Grisham's gripping fiction debut describes the inner workings of a law firm set up by the Mafia to launder money and concoct tax evasions. Mitchell McDeere, third in his class at Harvard Law, is wooed relentlessly by the prestigious Memphis tax firm of Bendini, Lambert and Locke. Succumbing to the firm's high-powered salesmanship, he rejects some of the country's best-known firms to join the group, where he is awed by the opulent lifestyle pressed upon him. But the company has ruthless, underhanded methods of gathering information (they wire the homes of all associates) and ensuring loyalty (social situations are severely monitored). The firm's mania for security and secrecy, combined with the fact that the only lawyers who have ever left did so in coffins--five in 15 years--arouse Mitch and wife Abby's curiosity, and they rapidly find themselves in a labyrinth of intrigue and danger. Grisham, a criminal defense attorney, lucidly describes law office procedures at the highest levels, smoothly meshing them with the criminal events of the narrative. Mitch and Abby are appealing characters, though a suspension of disbelief may be required to accept their super-cool behavior while they are on the run from both the FBI and the Mafia. Nonetheless, readers will be totally hooked by this unusual and absorbing story. 50,000 first printing; Literary Guild main selection; movie rights to Paramount.

Customer Reviews


This was my first Grisham book and no lie I've read it more than 5 times and don't get bored of it. A true masterful piece of fiction. One of the very best, period. If you want suspense, humor and egde of your seat excitement, grab this book. It's 100 times better than the movie.

Great, suspenseful novel!

This was my first John Grisham book. I absolutely loved it! Grisham is a master storyteller and keeps you on the edge of your seat up to the very end. Loved this book. I'll definitely be reading more of his books.

All time favorite

Easily my favorite book of all time. I started my Grisham obsession with The Broker and can't seem to be able to putdown any of his books, I am currently on my 10th Grisham book.

Highly recommend any Grisham novel but particularly The Firm. The page by page suspense will keep any reader up into the wee hours of the night.
