    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 Something.It 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 26.50.My 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

    If you re into stuff like this, you can read the full review.Bookcrossing The Partner by John Grisham Original review, 1997 05 30 This 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.

    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 IQ.

    Sometimes, John Grisham gives me forced endings Sometimes, I would imagine him going When s the deadline again Holy sh t, there s only a week left or I m already near my page limit, let me just squeeze everything in the last remaining pages or Let me just finish these in 2 chapters so I could go back to insert hobby party gathering person here Quite juvenile thoughts for a well published writter but just humor me here okay.That 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 client..It 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 board.God 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 quite 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 acquired 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 possessions.There 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 ending Check out my John Grisham Shelf

    This isn t Grisham s finest work.There 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.

    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 end.Only the ending leaves you a bit disappointed ruins what could have been a great reading experience.Except for that, a great read 3.5 stars

    Brilliant strategizing, excellent suspense, but FRUSTRATING AND SAD ENDING.REVIEWER S OPINION I love Grisham s writing style I was engaged all the way through There was good action and a lot of suspense By the end I was amazed, impressed, and intrigued with all the planning, strategizing, and how things worked out It may not be believable but it was fun Then the ending was frustrating and unhappy I WANT HAPPY ENDINGS Unfortunately that was my only problem with the book I loved the experience The only thing positive about the end was that it was thought provoking I had to tell myself yes I could see that But it s not a story I want to hear I normally would give this book a below average rating due to the ending, but because the rest was so good, I compromised at 3 stars For someone who would enjoy smart thinking, out thinking others, and a good suspenseful read, go ahead.STORY BRIEF Patrick worked for a law firm that was about to receive 90 million dollars from a lawsuit, 60 million of which would go to their client Arecio Patrick fakes his own death in a burning car Soon after that, he steals the 90 million, transferring it to an offshore account For four years he has been hiding with a fake name in Brazil Arecio and two insurance companies hire Stephano to find Patrick They have just found him They kidnap and torture him asking Where is the money Eva is a Brazilian lawyer who helps Patrick during this time.The narrator Frank Muller is great He adds fun suspense and drama to his reading of the book.DATA Unabridged audiobook length 11 hours 26 minutes Narrator Frank Muller Swearing language none that I recall Sexual content none Setting current day mostly various places in the U.S., plus S America and Europe Copyright 1997 Genre legal suspense.
