Description

Kyle McAvoy possesses an outstanding legal mind. Good-looking and affable, he has a glittering future. He also has a dark secret that could destroy his dreams, his career, even his life. One night that secret catches up with him. The men who accost Kyle have a compromising video they’ll use to ruin him–unless he does exactly what they say. What they offer Kyle is something any ambitious young lawyer would kill for: a job in Manhattan as an associate at the world’s largest law firm. If Kyle accepts, he’ll be on the fast track to partnership and a fortune. But there’s a catch. Kyle won’t be working for the firm but against it in a dispute between two powerful defense contractors worth billions. Now Kyle is caught between the criminal forces manipulating him, the FBI, and his own law firm–in a malignant conspiracy not even Kyle with all his intellect, cunning, and bravery may be able to escape alive.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

    I enjoyed the book, for as far as it went. When I ran out of pages I thought I hadn't downloaded all of the chapters. I discovered that the book ended, but the story didn't.

    I consider myself as Grisham's #1 fan. I love his work, and this isn't the exception, but there's no ending. Dissapointing.
  • Hated the ending

    This could have been one of Mr. Grisham's best works had he not rushed the conclusion to meet his annual deadline.

    As always, John Grisham has another amazing book. This one in particular starts a little quicker than some of his previous books. Great read!
