Publisher's Summary

They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in a small town 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.

Another interesting ride...

What did you love best about The Partner?

As usual, a good plot, lovable and despicable characters, and a good pace.

What did you like best about this story?

I like John Grisham's attention to detail, which makes his stories more plausible than maybe they SHOULD be! I get annoyed when, as I'm reading or listening to a book I find myself saying "but that doesn't make sense! He/she could've just....", or "that's so far-fetched - no one would ever do that!", or "come on - that's just WAY too much of a coincidence..." Grisham never makes me question plot points.

Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favorite?

The main character, Patrick/Danilo was my favorite. Grisham always does a great job of developing his main character and makes you root for him - even if you suspect he might be a "bad guy".

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There was a moment that moved me to profanity, but I can't reveal that moment hear, as it would spoil the book for future listeners.

Any additional comments?

I almost hate to admit my love for John Grisham's books, because they are USUALLY - ultimately - predictable. But by the time the prediction comes true, I am so fully invested in the story, I'm relieved that the story resolves as I'd hoped. Note the emphasis on usually...

Spellbinding

In this book the author takes us through a devious plot so well crafted that you find surprises on allmost every second page.
The narrator is crystal clear and the slight variation of accent and tone makes it very easy to follow even for someone who has not got English as their first language.
