If you thought Mitch McDeere was in trouble in The Firm, wait
until you meet Kyle McAvoy, The Associate
Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father’s small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential.
But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn’t want—even though it’s a job most law students can only dream about.
Three months after leaving Yale, Kyle becomes an associate at the largest law firm in the world, where, in addition to practicing law, he is expected to lie, steal, and take part in a scheme that could send him to prison, if not get him killed.
With an unforgettable cast of characters and villains—from Baxter Tate, a drug-addled trust fund kid and possible rapist, to Dale, a pretty but seemingly quiet former math teacher who shares Kyle’s “cubicle” at the law firm, to two of the most powerful and fiercely competitive defense contractors in the country—and featuring all the twists and turns that have made John Grisham the most popular storyteller in the world, The Associate is vintage Grisham.

Looks like he got tired at the end
I liked the book until the end. I realized I had about 5 minutes left and there was no good ending coming.
It was worth the wait!!
Good book....I have no regrets with making the purchase. Once again Grisham takes you behind the scenes of a corupt law firm and introduces you to reality. Many people complained about the ending but I felt it fit the charactor and the story line. Overall great listening, I would have rated it 5 stars if narrated by Michael Beck..
I have listened to most of his work on books on tape and have loved most. I am having trouble continuing with this one after the first half hour. Boring. Definitely not his best work.
