Publisher's 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.


What the Critics Say

"All the ingredients of suspense, drama and meticulous attention to detail that have made Grisham's novels bestsellers... A terrific read" (Sunday Mirror)
"A narrative triumph and a stylish joy, this novel has me gasping for more" (Daily Telegraph)
"One terrific book–smart, fast, stingingly satiric, and almost criminally entertaining" (Entertainment Weekly)

Crap ending

Ever listened to The Hunchback of Notre Dame? Great characterisation and plot , long story with super bad ending. Ok Grisham is not Hugo, but this book shares the same problem. I would have preferred a Disney ending. I feel I wasted my time. Won't bother reading another Grisham now. I'm sure he won't mind.
