Over 30 years after “The Firm” put John Grisham on the map as one of America’s best fiction writers, the Mississippi native is releasing a sequel to his famous novel.
“The Exchange,” which is set to be released on Oct. 17, will reunite readers with attorney and whistleblower Mitch McDeere. During a recent appearance on CBS Mornings, Grisham gave a little insight into where McDeere and his wife, Abby, are now.
“Mitch is 41 years old. He’s a lawyer in Manhattan. He’s a partner in the biggest law firm in the world. He’s a very successful international lawyer, who goes all over the world putting out fires for his clients. He’s very successful” Grisham explained. “Abby is a book publisher in Manhattan. They have twin sons and life is very good. And then, Mitch takes a case that he probably wishes he hasn’t taken, and his life gets very complicated.”
