One of my favorite thrillers in recent years was "The Firm," yet another Pollack classic. I had read the Michael Crichton book, and was surprised that, for once, the film was better than the novel. The film has a much more satisfying ending.

The Firm was John Grisham's second novel. It was not written by Michael Crichton.
