#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • John Grisham delivers high-flying international suspense in a stunning new legal thriller that marks the return of Mitch McDeere, the brilliant hero of The Firm.

What became of Mitch and Abby McDeere after they exposed the crimes of Memphis law firm Bendini, Lambert & Locke and fled the country? The answer is in The Exchange, the riveting sequel to The Firm, the blockbuster thriller that launched the career of America’s favorite storyteller. It is now fifteen years later, and Mitch and Abby are living in Manhattan, where Mitch is a partner at the largest law firm in the world. When a mentor in Rome asks him for a favor that will take him far from home, Mitch finds himself at the center of a sinister plot that has worldwide implications—and once again endangers his colleagues, friends, and family. Mitch has become a master at staying one step ahead of his adversaries, but this time there’s nowhere to hide.

Very disappointing for a follow up to The Firm. To be honest, I wanted my credit back it was that bad.

I have been especially looking forward to this new Grisham book for a few months, and now still looking forward to a good one. When I first started listening I was missing Michael Beck, but it became plain to see why he might have chosen not to narrate. The story was lame and confusing, but not confusion on the reader's part -- the author's. I think the author got the Tom Cruise from his MI career instead of the TC Mitch McDeer character, and gave Abby an improbable and gratuitous role. Those problems along with the narrator's propensity to whisper the last word or syllable for sentences, plus the painfully slow delivery made for a boring read. In fact, I had to speed it to 1.4 or 1.5x to get a listenable cadence. Don't waste your time or money on this book.

This is the best that John Grisham could come up with as a sequel to The Firm? This should have just been one of his throw away books with a random lawyer rather than Mitch Mcdeer. I do not get it. Very boring and disappointing. Narrator was ok.

Surprised this story got past the editors. Mitch’s trip to Memphis in the beginning had nothing to do with the rest of the story. It was as if Grisham had one story in mind but then decided to go in a completely different direction. It was painfully slow and filled with mundane details that had nothing to do with the plot. Why do we need to know that Abby packed wrinkle free dresses for Morocco? Or how much she liked British Airways? Or that Mitch’s junior associate had to fly coach? Silly stuff that took away from the seriousness of the crisis. I wish I could have my credit back!!

Too violent. With the climate in the Middle East now, probably a good idea to avoid such new writings on the topic. I was curious why one reviewer said he wished Grisham had not written this book. I understand why now.

I enjoyed this book but had a hard time with all the lawyers in different countries. Wish Abby didn’t have as much of a role, but really thought there would be surprise ending tying this event to the mob from The Firm and that was who was really after Mitch even thou 15 years later. But maybe another book will tie these 2 books together.
