First edition fine
Of all Grisham's novels, The Firm is one of his best. Engaging, evocative and filled with surprises, it takes the reader on a journey into the 'dark' world of a law firm immersed in illegitimate enterprise, aka paradox. I read this book when it first came out, so memory of details isn't spot on. That said, the film adaptation has been one of my favorites, Tom Cruise aside :) Regardless, I'm a fan of Grisham's storytelling, his remarkable knowledge of law, trials, and all things associated.
Very dumb and not worth the amount of time I spent on it, close to pulp fiction…nonetheless I was entertained for most of the book. It gets points for that alone. Otherwise it was not good stuff: it led me to basically no introspection, I walk away no richer in thought or experience than I was at the start. But it was fine for a time-killer. 2.5 stars I guess.
I read this book a long time ago, and don't remember much about it, except that I liked it a lot, which isn't unusual as I liked all of his books.

At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. He made a deadly mistake. When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert and Locke of Memphis, he thought 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 him decorator. Mitch McDeere 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.
