Abstract:

The firm: brimming with heart-pounding suspense and legal intrigue, the novel that placed John Grisham on the literary map forever changed the way the public looks at the law. In "The Firm", a young attorney is drawn to a successful law firm in Memphis where the perks are good--but the secrets are deadly.

The appeal: Wall street millionaire Carl Trudeau purchases an unsuspecting Mississippi State Supreme Court judge candidate when a lower court rules against one of his chemical companies for dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply causing a cancer cluster.

The chamber: Sam Cayhall is a former Klansman and unrepentant racist now facing the death penalty for a fatal bombing in 1967. He has run out of chances -- except for one: the young, liberal Chicago lawyer who just happens to be his grandson. While the executioners prepare the gas chamber, while the protesters gather and the TV cameras wait, Adam has only days, hours, minutes to save his client. For between the two men is a chasm of shame, family lies, and secrets -- including the one secret that could save Sam Cayhall's life ... or cost Adam his.
