They hired him.  They trusted him.  Now they don't want justice--they want revenge....For four years, Patrick had often wondered how it would feel if they caught him.Now he was terror-stricken.  Practically naked and strapped down like an animal, he knew the next few hours would be insufferable....Once he was a well-liked, well-paid young partner in a thriving Mississippi law firm.  Then Patrick Lanigan stole ninety million dollars from his own firm--and ran for his life.  For four years, he evaded men who were rich, powerful, and would stop at nothing to find him.  Then, inevitably, on the edge of the Brazilian jungle, they finally tracked him down.Now Patrick is coming home.  And in the Mississippi city where it all began, an extraordinary trial is about to begin.  As prosecutors circle like sharks, as Patrick's lawyer prepares his defense, as Patrick's lover prays for his deliverance and his former partners wait for their revenge, another story is about to emerge.  Because Patrick Lanigan, the most reviled white-collar criminal of his time, knows something that no one else in the world knows.He knows the truth....

I picked this book up at the town rummage sale. 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 ...

The Partner is a fast-paced legal thriller novel which progressed at such an interesting pace that I never wanted to put it down. It had all the ingredients needed for it to make such a good read.Though, I ...

5.0 The Partner
I love everything I have ever read by J. G. He gives such a inside view to the judicial world, that one really starts to feel a part of that realm.

All the John Grisham books are similar. It's fun to read as a teenager or if you are a massive fan, but I wouldn't read it again.
