ERROR ON PAGE 177, Line 6, the conversation is with BAXTER and not KYLE, alot of readers have seen this already anyway.
I luv the book though.

YOU HAD ME. yOU HAD ME. HE TURNS THE CORNER AND HE'S GONE. WHAT?!? IS THIS AN ENDING OR A LEAD IN TO VOLUME 2 OF THE ASSOCIATE? IF IT'S A LEAD IN, IT IS A POOR ONE...UNLESS VOLUME 2 IS ALREADY PUBLISHED AND WAITING FOR ME TO READ. AM SOOOOO DISAPPOINTED.

Which Grisham novel had the quote "find the problem" or 'fix the problem" in relation to a shadowy figure talking to an underling on the phone?

The "Associate" was indeed a page turner until it ran out of pages. It was like who ever wrote this book had writers block at the conclusion and just let Kyle walk out the door because he didn't know what else to do. It was a good read until it ran out of steam. It doesn't even compare to "The Firm".

****SPOILER ALERT**** THE ASSOCIATE
I believe this new book, The Associate, was indeed perhaps ghost written.
Reasons for thinking so:
*Not set in Grisham's usual places of fiction, i.e. Louisiana, Georgia, Tenn., etc. It was in fact set in downtown NYC, and Pittsburgh.
*There was no major twist, neither at the climax, nor the ending. Grisham is in fact FAMOUS for his twists.
*There were far too many loopholes in this story line, compared to real Grisham novels having few or none. These include, Kyle would have sought advice from his father, LONG before he actually did; If Bennie had so much dirt on all the people he kept bumping out of Kyle's way, why didn't he just lean on one of them for his information, as they were already in place (on the Trylon / Bartin case).
The list goes on and on folks, and this is why I do not believe this book to have been actually written by Grisham. Not saying it wasn't a page turner, it sure was, just please John, don't put your name on something, that surely wasn't yours. This book really let me down in the end.

Just finished "The Broker" fabulous book. Is there a sequel as I want to know what happens to Joel Blackman when he returns to Italy. Can't leave me hanging like this. I want to know what happens now. Please advise.
Thank you and keep it coming.

Loved the "Associate". FYI though, I found on page 138 Kyle's name on paragraph 10 instead of Baxter's. Nothing major. You just had to read the sentence again.
