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.

Movie material

This is a incredible story, I thought I had it figured out. The end was a big surprise but certainly poetic justice. Someone complained about the narrator, so I was looking to critique, but frankly I enjoyed him very much.
Great book.

A minor peeve...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Partner to be better than the print version?

Read the print version some years ago and really enjoyed it. I really enjoy audio, and normally, good narration enhances my appreciation of a really good book. In this case I think I prefer the printed page.

What did you like best about this story?

Grisham is a master, perhaps the master, of legal/suspense genre. I find all of his works enthralling and I appreciate that he avoids the turn-off (for me) of graphic sex and bad language.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Frank Muller is an excellent narrator except for one thing. He obviously has never spent much time below the Mason-Dixon Line. He manages to grossly mispronounce almost all of the prominent place names on and near the Mississippi Gulf coast. I cringed every time one his southern characters said Biloxi as if it rhymed with "foxy." (It's "Bu-Luxi"). Mobile is pronounced with the accent on the last syllable, not the first. I can understand missing on Pass Christian, (accent on last syllable) but hasn't there been enough coverage of hurricanes over the years that everyone should know how to pronounce Lake Pontchartrain?
This is not just a matter of a chip on my southern shoulder. Think Pierre, South Dakota or Cairo, Illinois. I just think a little research by Audible producers and narrators would enhance what is already an excellent experience.
Ok, I feel better now.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

No, my rant is over.
