The book centres around Mitch McDeere, a brilliant Harvard Law student who finished in the top 1% of his class. He is now being courted by most major law firms around the country.

One of the smaller firms, in Memphis, offers him a deal he can’t refuse, including a starting salary of $80 000 a year and BMW. He gleefully accepts the offer and soon he is plugging away burning incredible hours at the firm, determined to exceed all the partners’ expectations.

But then he realizes he is being watched constantly. Not only at work, but at home with his wife as well: his house and phones are bugged and he realises no conversation is private.

Under the strain of intense work and invasion his marriage starts to suffer. Then comes the mysterious deaths of a few of his work colleagues, and so Mitch starts to do some digging.
