#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.


  • Didn’t feel like a sequel

    By KellyAnn9
    Not a sequel….without any spoilers, I thought this would be about Mitch and the Firm. The fast forward and lack of details on his life immediately after were disappointing. I reread The Firm right before The Exchange so I had many questions I was excited to get answers to. The sequels for Jake Brigance are so much better. Sequel aside I didn’t enjoy the plot either. I could not get invested in any of the characters and the ending felt “meh” as another review described it. Hoping the next novel is back to what I look forward to reading every year from the author.
  • Meh…disappointing ending.

  • Tense and not a book that you can put down

    Really an enjoyable read. Hated the ending. Wanted a tricky conspiracy and the bad guys to suffer. We need a sequel..
  • Where is the beef?

    By MTRye
    Total letdown. Boring plot. Little suspense. Very repetitive. Almost felt like author started a sequel and didn’t know where to go. Starts with a very intriguing plot and evolves into an international goose chase.
  • Another GREAT book

    Really fun and engaging read.
  • Great to Have Mitch McDeere Back

    By Eyerish21
    Another gem from Grisham. The good thing about reading this is I can now picture Mitch and Abby thanks to the movie version of The Firm!
  • The Exchange

    By Joanabake
    Not up to Grisham’s capabilities as a great storyteller. Kind of boring in the middle, almost as if he was drawing it out to write enough pages. I was disappointed.

    By Gladys CPA
    Very intricately developed plot. Loved that it was a sequel and tied things together well.
  • Eh!

    Not one of his better books, more or less left you hanging waiting for more.
