Review:

"GRISHAM HAS A FIELD DAY...The Associate grabs the reader quickly and becomes impossible to put down." --Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Grisham's confident style hasn't changed, and THERE'S SUSPENSE APLENTY." --People

"Grisham makes it easy for us to keep flipping the pages...A DEVASTATING PORTRAIT OF THE BIG-TIME, BIG-BUCKS LEGAL WORLD." --Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post

"Throughout, Grisham unwinds the spool of his narrative at a MASTERFUL, page-turning pace that pulls readers in and keeps them wanting more...The Associate is an absorbing thriller that's A FITTING FOLLOW-UP TO THE FIRM." --The Boston Globe

"COMPULSIVELY READABLE...You're peering into a secret world of power and money. What more could you or any red-blooded American ask for?" --Time magazine

"A PAGE-TURNER...Kyle McAvoy recalls Mitch McDeere from Grisham's breakout novel The Firm. He's young, idealistic, handsome, a little too cocky for his own good, but a brilliant lawyer who gets pulled in over his head and given an education in how the world really works." --The Los Angeles Times
