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.

Grisham's all-time best!

My personal all-time favorite of the whole Grisham collection!! Having read it a couple of times and now someone who did it for me, only this time did it include the scene by scene background music which added to and complimented the drama of each setting!!!

Top entertainment

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

I have not read the book. The Audio Edition of The Partner is so extremely well read, I'd rather - in this one rare case - have the narrators voice in my ear than my own diction.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot keeps twisting and turning; one follows breathlessly!

Which character – as performed by Michael Beck – was your favorite?


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

Well yes, but I do have a life to live besides listing to Audio books.
