Summary:

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 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.

    I liked this book as I do most of Grisham's work, but I didn't like the ending. I had hoped for better things, but did enjoy his track to freedom.

    Sorry folks, but I found this one to be a dud. If you are looking for a really good "5 STAR" John Grisham story, I recommend "The Last Juror"?.

  • Pam

    Loved it! I was fascinated with every turn of events. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, there's a twist. Great story, great narration, great writing!

    It is very unusualy for me not to finish a book. But, this book just seemed too cliche...the guy steals the money, gets the girl, runs away, gets caught and now the lawyers will brilliantly manipulate the system. Of course, I understand the ending is great but I just didn't want to spend the much time. Another thing that bothered me was that there was absolutely no remorse. The guy did commit a crime and steal the money. Although the ones he took it from are unlikeable, that's not a good enough reason to become a thief. And then, he wants to waste the taxpayers' resources by suing the FBI or whoever else he can find....what a sleeze.

  • Jay Salinger

    Most of the Grisham books I've read involve money, a girl, and freedom. Which will the main character win, and which will he lose? Sometimes there are nice trade-offs. With this book, I didn't see the ending coming.

  • Paula Gutierrez

    While this story dragged in portions, it was good in the end. If you are a Grisham fan, I recommend renting/buying this one.

  • Teresa from San Antonio

    What I didn't like about this Audio presentation was the sudden burst of music during narration. I would be listening to the quite narration and in jumps music. Depending where I was (usually my car, it would momentarily distract me as I wondered where that noise was coming from. I only listened to the first CD so I cannot really comment on the story line.

    This story was definitely entertaining and held my interest for the many hours I spend in the car. It just wasn't a "Wow" book like "Honeymoon" was -- you know, you just can't wait to get back to it or you sit in the car after you've arrived to listen to more.
