Again, Grisham uses a troubled/scheming lawyer in dramatic fashion. I truely enjoyed the story from cover to cover. I was somewhat disappointed in the ending, but every book cannot be exactly how we want it. If you are thinking of reading this book, it is an easy, enjoyable read.

Patrick Lanigan, a lawyer with a crumbling marriage and shifty partners who are planning to fire him, wants out. So he fakes is own death, steals $90 million from his former law firm, and disappears. Five years later, he gets caught...

One of Grisham's best novels for the sheer excitement of the fast-moving plot. Great pleasure reading.

Easy read and very enjoyable. Hard to put down because you had to know what would happen next. And the ending is something I never would have expected.

This book really held my interest I love they way he gave you just a little information at a time so you could piece the story together bit by bit. Another good book from Grisham. I really enjoyed it.

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.

Taken from the back cover: 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 4 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..."
