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.

I loved this Grisham book, but the ending really depressed me.....but I'm not sure I would of thought as highly of the book if it didn't end the way it did.
The Partner is the definition of intriguing. This is one of Grisham's better works. Every detail is thoroughly conceived and attended to. No gaps and you are never left hanging. This book is very much about the journey, than it is the outcome. The narrator is unbelievably good.
