    Summary Of The Book

    The Firm, originally published in 1991, is a legal thriller. It is about Mitch McDeere, a brilliant Harvard Law graduate who joins a small tax law firm in Memphis. Just few days into his job, he hears that two of his colleagues have died in a scuba-diving accident. The protagonist soon discovers that three other lawyers have also died in the last fifteen years. This makes him suspicious, and he decides to hire a private investigator, Eddie Lomax, who later tells him that all five attorneys have died under questionable circumstances. Later, Lomax gets murdered.

    McDeere is then approached by Wayne Tarrance, an FBI agent. The protagonist then gets to know the firm that he is working for is run by the Morolto crime family. The senior management is involved in tax frauds and money laundering, amounting to millions of dollars. To ensure that this secret is not leaked out, no lawyer gets to leave the firm alive. McDeere is shocked, and he realizes that his office, car, and house have all been bugged. He is keen to get out of this situation, and therefore makes a deal with the FBI. However, the firm becomes suspicious of McDeere, and they figure out that his loyalty does not lie with them. With his life in danger, what will McDeere do in The Firm?

    Not impressive !!

    The plot is good , the speed is slow. I am not at all impressed with this book and i do not recommend it as a must read. Grisham tries to do a lot but fails actually. I bought this book and wasted 326 Rupees actually. This was my first book of John Grisham and i am very frustrated now.

    NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY

    Dear friends, lemme tell yew......... a frank opinion......... Yew will certainly not like it........... Its very slow from the beginning upto the last few pages........ Expectations about the book involving some clever arguments in court are very much prominent by their absence......... it is all about a fellow by name McDeere`s life in the firm......... My sincere suggestion is to look for the movie or the TV SERIES with the same name....... It is one of those type of books where the movie...

    An Overall Thrilling Experience

    Good plot. Strong development of events and characters.Interesting and unexpected turn of events. Insights on human behaviour. But a little dissappointing climax, more of an anti-climax.

    A CLASSIC PLAY

    At the first it looked like normal novel where a poor kid comes in the story who is hungry for success. but when i went further plot got thickens and in a very suspense way. it is a very interesting and a good novel.

    Grisham's Finest Firm!!!

    Just finished the book..... First one from the Grisham's fraternity....
    The book revolves around the Firm as the title suggests....

    I actually dig into the book to know the style of Grisham and instantly became fan with "The Firm"....

    As far as the story/plot is concerned Grisham is nothing behind the likes of Larrson, Archer or Child... but the story slows down a bit in the middle....

    Will cover some other Grisham's Novel as the style is perfectly paced.....

    Good book to read all in al...
