Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray–doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail–already knew: You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice–if he wants to live.

Ingrid Yung's life is full of firsts. A first-generation Chinese American, the first lawyer in her family, she's about to collect the holy grail of "firsts" and become the first minority woman to make partner at the venerable old Wall Street law firm Parsons Valentine & Hunt. Ingrid has perfected the art of "passing" and seamlessly blends into the old-boy corporate culture. She gamely banters in the corporate cafeteria, plays in the firm softball league, and earnestly racks up her billable hours. But when an offensive incident at the summer outing threatens the firm's reputation, Ingrid's outsider status is suddenly thrown into sharp relief. Scrambling to do damage control, Parsons Valentine announces a new Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, commanding Ingrid to spearhead the effort. Only she's about to close an enormous transaction that was to be her final step in securing partnership. For the first time, Ingrid must question her place in the firm. Pitted against her colleagues, including her golden-boy boyfriend, Ingrid begins to wonder whether the prestige of partnership is worth breaching her ethics. But in The Partner Track by Helen Wan, can Ingrid risk throwing away the American dream that is finally within her reach?

THE FIRM is Bill Smith's quintessential novel on the most exotic aspects of homoerotic slavery. Forrest and David, long-time friends and business associates, are wealthy small time slave traders who are in the business as much for their own pleasure as for profit. But Mr. Broadley, CEO of THE FIRM, convinces both of them to take over the procurement division of a enormous global underground organization which specializes in the 'top end' of the slave market: the best looking, best trained, and always subservient properties reserved for the super-wealthy who can afford to own the very best. In their new position, the two entrepreneurs prove to be wildly successful and slowly learn all aspects of THE FIRM's operations: the sources of slaves, how slaves are successfully trained, effective marketing of the end product, exactly what customers expect of their expensive new property and how to keep those customers happy. Under Mr. Broadley's careful tutelage, Forrest and David meet every challenge thrown at them over the years, earning unbelievable commissions along the way, but, more importantly, the undying gratitude of THE FIRM's Board of Directors. Readers claim: "Bill Smith just keeps getting better and better when it comes to creating an almost believable and most enjoyable fantasy;" "The story line and character developments are absolute tops for this genre;" "This author has an imagination that soars but it's all so real you wouldn't be surprised if you read about THE FIRM in tomorrow's newspaper;" "The upper limits of exquisite homoeroticism."

In 1915 a silent film adaptation The Firm of Girdlestone was made.John Girdlestone owns the firm of Girdlestone. It is a very lucrative business and John Girdlestone and his son Ezra Girdlestone are respected by everyone. Both father and son are cynics and have no other thought but for their business; after giving a donation of £25 for charity, John Girdlestone remarks to himself that it is not a bad "investment", as it will make a favorable impression on the collector, who is a Member of Parliament, whose influence he hopes to use some day. Ezra, his son, is even more of a cynic, as the elder Girdlestone's cynicism is mitigated by his supposed religiosity. However, he manifests a great acumen for business, sometimes even surpassing his father's sharpness in business matters. A series of disastrous speculations by the elder Girdlestone financially ruins the firm.

Arguing that prior accounts of the novel's relation to the rise of finance have missed the emergence of a wider service sector, it traces the effects of service work's many forms and class positions in the Victorian novel.
