Partner, The

John Grisham
They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered. He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well.But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death. When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes.From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-law firm's offshore account. And Patrick fled some more.But they found him.

**spoiler alert** After faking his death, stealing $90 million from one of his law firms clients, and getting caught...nothing looks good for Patrick Lanigan. I love this fun and fast-paced story with all its twists and turns, all its planning and plotting. Only one thing doesn't go as planned and my only question for Mr. Grisham is, "did it really have to end that way?" I wonder how many draft endings this story had...?

Im quite disappointed with my very first Grisham book, the story is slow and boring. You will start enjoying it towards the end. The main character is brilliant, but not brilliant enough to escape the stupidity brought by love.
