    DescriptionIt's a deadly game of blackmail. And they're making him play. Kyle McAvoy is one of the outstanding legal students of his generation: he's good looking, has a brilliant mind and a glittering future ahead of him. But he has a secret from his past, a secret that threatens to destroy his entire life. One night that secret catches up with him in the form of a deeply compromising video of the incident that haunts him. Kyle realises that he no longer owns his own future - that he must do as his blackmailers tell him, or the video will be made public, with all the unpleasant consequences. What price do they demand for Kyle's secret? It is for Kyle to take a job in New York as an associate at the largest law firm in the world. Kyle won't be working for this company, but against it - passing on the secrets of it's biggest trial to date, a dispute worth billions of dollars to the victor. Full of twists and turns and reminiscent of The Firm, The Associate is vintage John Grisham.

    Review quote
    "It's a damned good read. This is Grisham returning to what he knows best." Scotland on Sunday "Grisham paints a fascinating picture. Vintage Grisham, with a really believable ending" The Guardian "Tense and exciting" Evening Standard "Easily his most recognisably 'back to form' novel since The Firm. Grisham has returned with a vengeance to his trademark territory: the grim world of corporate law and the sinister machinations of the men on its fringes." The Times "In typical Grisham fashion it does hurtle along at a decent clip" London Lite

    He’s their lawyer. He’s their insider. He’s their spy. Kyle McAvoy is one of the outstanding legal students of his generation. But he has a secret in his past, a secret that threatens to destroy his fledgling career and, possibly, his entire life. That secret has fallen into the hands of the wrong people, and the only way Kyle can protect it is to play their game.They want him to become an associate at the largest law firm in the world. With a big salary and great prospects, the job would be a dream come true for most ambitious young lawyers. But for Kyle, it’s a nightmare as in addition to practicing law, he must also lie, steal, and take part in a scheme that could send him to prison – if it doesn’t get him killed first… ‘Grisham’s new book harks back to the one that made him famous, and effectively defined the legal thriller genre, The Firm’ MAIL ON SUNDAY ‘The Associate grabs the reader quickly and becomes impossible to put down’ NEW YORK TIMES ‘Vintage Grisham, with a really believable ending’ GUARDIAN
