The Exchange: After The Firm (The Firm Series)
Mitch McDeere has resurfaced at Scully & Pershing, the largest law firm in the world. He is a partner now, and he and Abby have twin boys. Abby is a cookbook editor at a small publishing company, and they have a good life. Mitch is assigned to take over a big client from Turkey who has been working in Libya and has been stiffed by Gaddafi. Mitch takes an associate to Libya to tour the site. She is the daughter of a senior lawyer, Mitch’s mentor, who runs the Rome office. Mitch becomes violently ill, and the associate is kidnapped by terrorists who demand a huge ransom for her return. Thus begins a saga of epic proportions with Mitch and Abby at the center.
John Grisham is the king of legal thrillers, and this one will not disappoint. For those who read The Firm, this will be a welcome many-years-later what-ever-happened-to story of the main characters of that book. The writing is superb. The story is very compelling and believable in today’s world, and it will keep readers turning the pages in great anticipation. Not for the faint-hearted, though. Terrorists don’t play nice, and some of it is hard to read.
