John Grisham pens sequel to The Firm

Author John Grisham has announced he has written a sequel to his bestselling thriller The Firm, which will be published this autumn.

The Exchange: After The Firm is set to be published in October and will follow protagonist Mitch McDeere once again.

“When last seen in The Firm, Mitch McDeere and his wife Abby were fleeing Memphis with the bad guys in hot pursuit,” said Grisham. “Now they’re back, fifteen years later, and living in New York where Mitch is an international lawyer and a partner in a mega-firm.

“His work takes him across the globe, and not always to safe places. During a trip to Libya, his trusted associate is kidnapped, and an execution is threatened unless an enormous ransom is paid. Only Mitch can facilitate the exchange and I hope readers have as much fun with the novel as I am writing it.”

Grisham’s The Firm was turned into a film in the early 1990s starring Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman. No word yet on whether there are plans to make a film of the sequel.
