A Note from John Grisham

January 27, 2009

Dear Readers:

I’m excited about the publication of THE ASSOCIATE. Over the years, many of you have asked when I might write another book like The Firm. I have a feeling this new book might be just what you’ve been looking for. Kyle McAvoy reminded me a lot of Mitch McDeere as I was writing it, and I had a great time setting the action in New York, a city I’ve always loved but had never featured in one of my novels before. I hope you have as much fun reading this one as I had writing it…
