||Mitch McDeere, a Harvard law student graduates at the top of his class and is recruited by prestigious firms across the nation. He and his young wife finally settle on a close-knit, idyllic firm in Memphis. But when Mitch stumbles on shady business dealings and considers resigning, they learn just how close knit the firm is--no associate has ever left it alive. As he tries to hold onto his integrity, his family and his life, Mitch must play an increasingly dangerous game of cat and mouse.
||The senior partner studied the resume for the hundreth time and again found nothing he disliked about Mitchell Y. McDeere, at least not on paper.
||At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best 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.
