    A man jogging down a lonely road in Brazil is kidnapped and tortured accused of being Patrick Lanigan an American lawyer who was thought to have been killed in an automobile accident four years earlier about the same time that 90 million disappeared from his law firm's offshore account If he really is Lanigan everyone wants a piece of him his former partners the client that the money came from his wife the insurance companies the feds Everyone So is this guy really Patrick and if so what's his plan?I thought this was a highly entertaining legal thriller implausible maybe but who cares as long as it's fun? until the very end It lost a whole star with that ending If you're going to pull off a twist like that it needs some additional foundation Foreshadowing SomethingIt felt like a cheap shot manipulative and tacked on and left me annoyed than an insurance company out a few million dollars Or at least as annoyed as a reader out several hours and 2650My recommendation rip the last few pages out of the book and pretend they were never there plugs ears Lalalala

    LOVED this book so smart and witty and edge of your seat reading with lots of twists and turns I'm torn about giving this 4 or 5 stars because the ending of this book taunts me in an intriguing and enjoyably annoying way

    I do own Grisham books but only because family members keep buying them for me on birthday's and xmas's I smile politely and thank them wishing they would include the receipt I have read this and i don't recommend it unless you are 10 years old and want to start reading adult fiction Dull dull dull How this man is a best selling writer is reflection of today's society's I

    If you're into stuff like this you can read the full reviewBookcrossing The Partner by John GrishamOriginal review 1997 05 30This morning on the Tube I saw a Grisham lying around “The Partner” and I was tempted to take it but it was not marked as a bookcrossing book so I wondered if somebody had only forgotten it or lost it out of his backpack when leaving the tram in a haste So I left it in there Of course somebody might have finished it and let it lie there for somebody else to take it But since there was no affirmation that it was fine to take it I did not want to commit trover and left it

    Sometimes John Grisham gives me 'forced' endings Sometimes I would imagine him going When's the deadline again? Holy sht there's only a week leftorI'm already near my page limit let me just sueeze everything in the last remaining pagesorLet me just finish these in 2 chapters so I could go back to insert hobbypartygatheringperson hereuite juvenile thoughts for a well published writter but just humor me here okayThat being said this is the first John Grisham book that didn't feel like he was simply trying to end the story in a few pages or so and trying to tie whatever loose ends in whatever way possible I didn't expect the ending too and made me go Oh It is because of books like this Mr Grisham or would you prefer John? that makes me want to pull your book out of anyone's bookshelf if I just want to pass the time Now would you be kind enough sir and tell me what happened? Was she kidnapped? Or simply ran away? I have think Stephano got her Maybe this is her way of making Patrick pay Am I suppose to loose sleep now?

    This is not one of the best Grisham books but there is enough suspense and drama to make it worth reading I don't think it has been made into a movie yet although there may be a TV series pendingA man is hiding out in Brazil under an assumed identity Four years before he had been a partner in a successful law firm in America By all accounts he was happily married and adored his daughter But then he had died in a car accident Shortly afterwards ninety million dollars had disappeared from a clientIt's only a matter of time before the man is found and positively identified but who will get to him first?It's difficult to come up with the moral of this story without ruining the plot for those who have yet to read it One obvious lesson is that living on the run from the law or running away from your past is no fun and will eventually catch up with you This applies across the boardGod has created us with a conscience and knowledge of right and wrong If we persistently sin our conscience may become dulled but there will be a nagging feeling that something is not uite right We cannot escape it The Partner is a good illustration of this truth the man is always looking over his shoulder and waiting for the inevitable He cannot relax and enjoy the things he has acuired We know too that those who evade justice in this life will face the ultimate Judge in the next The One who judges perfectly according to His law all those who have not trusted Jesus for their salvation This book also reminds us that relationships are valuable than possessionsThere is some mild swearing There is no sexual content apart from some references to nudity There is some graphic violence including torture scenes which will upset some Grisham fans may enjoy this I doubt anyone could have predicted the endingCheck out my John Grisham Shelf

    This isn't Grisham's finest workThere is none of the action of The Firm or The Pelican Brief It doesn't have the interest of A Time To Kill or The Chamber The book starts at the end and then explains what happened Remember Show don't tell?It's a dull story about what happens when you steal a lot of money and how to keep it hidden Why not start at the beginning and show what led to the crime and then the escape from justice?A good editor agent or publisher should have reminded Grisham of the basics before letting this book go out Instead the emperor's new clothes syndrome kicked in again and no one told him the truth Although to be fair he should have realised it himself and probably did but decided to publish anyway

    Well John Grisham has done it again Talk about partners in crime on so many levels I was shaking my head in utter surprise and disbelief through each chapter Grisham did not disappointPatrick Lanigan aka Danilo Silva has embezzled from his partners at the law firm he worked at He cleverly faked his death got plastic surgery and got lost in in another country living frugally while spreading the stolen money in offshore accounts that could not be tracked Now based on a credible tip he's the one who has been tracked down and caught by some bounty hunters They tortured him until the FBI got involved and took over the investigationNow who you may think is innocent and a victim throughout this story turned out to be guilty The very person you thought was guilty was actually the person who is instrumental in putting a lot of people away on corruption charges including former partners at his law firm and a US Senator Oh what a tangled web this story weavesLanigan hired Eva Miranda aka Leah Piresa lawyer who he later fell in love with He investigated his firm who was about to give him the shaft There were so many money hungry backstabbing players in this game and Patrick had the evidence to back everything up His plan was executed almost flawlessly He had everything planned to the T Eva was on every detail of the plan and was the only person at the time to know where the money was distributed in which banks around the world After the charges were dropped by Patrick's design of course as Sandy Patrick's attorney was driving him to the freedom he planned Sandy said something was gnawing at him It was about something the bounty hunter Jack Stephano asked him Sandy said to Patrick that Stephano asked point blank if Eva was his Judas because something didn't add up Of course Patrick denied it Once Patrick reached the Villa Gallici in Aix where he was to meet Eva he found out that she indeed was his Judas

    This is a really fast paced gripping story like 'The Firm' 'The Runaway Jury' It's not a courtroom drama but about how the protagonist uses the system legal maneuvers to get himself out of trouble Grisham’s writing style keeps you engaged at all times there are not many dull moments in the book The detailed plans strategies he executes the subplots the suspense elements keeps you hooked till the endOnly the ending leaves you a bit disappointed ruins what could have been a great reading experienceExcept for that a great read 35 stars
