The Firm is a 1991 legal thriller and the second novel by John Grisham. This is the novel which bought John Grisham the fame and attention of general public. The Firm is published in 1991 and almost overnight John Grisham became popular and master of legal thrillers.

I am not a big fan of legal fiction/thriller but the novels from John Grisham are totally different even though the genre is legal thriller but this man knows how to make a story so gripping and so alive that one can’t put it down until he finishes it. The Firm is the best novel of Grisham so far which has twists in plot and a great suspense. The Firm has some brilliant characters and character development is so amazing that you will be so hooked to this book that you will never know when you turned the last page.

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 & 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 a 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.

The Story of The Firm is well constructed, character development is amazing and overall a very interesting and good read. I will recommend this book to every one, even though you are not a Grisham or Legal fiction fan, Go read this. I have read so far Six to Seven John Grisham books, but of all seven books, this one is the best.

The Story revolves around Mitch McDeere, a fresh college pass out with flying colors. He has many offers in hand from best law firms in America but he chooses Bendini, Lambar and Locke a small firm located in Memphis who offer Mitch great money along with BMW and low interest home loan and pays all his student loans. Soon he finds out that FBI is behind him and every word which come out of his mouth in office or home or in-car is being recorded by the Firm and Firm has extensive surveillance for all the associated who joins it, but Why?. No one has ever left The Firm and he soon finds out Why. A brilliantly told and narrated tale of young lawyer, a must read.
