#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.
