Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER - At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best firms 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.

Review quote

"Taut, fast and relentless... A ride worth taking." -- San Francisco Chronicle.

"Keeps the reader hooked... From the creepy first chapters... to the vise-tightening midsection and on to the take-the money-and-run finale." -- The Wall Street Journal.

"Irresistable... seizes the reader on the opening page and propels him through 400 more." -- Peter Prescott, Newsweek.
