After four years on the run, hiding 90 million dollars, it was only a matter of time before Patrick Lanigan's past caught up with him. John Grisham's The Partner is the gripping tale of a young, ambitious lawyer who turns crooked. He fakes his own death, grabs a fortune from his ex-firm, and heads for Brazil. But despite plastic surgery, a new identity, and a resourceful way to hide the money, Lanigan's perfect crime unravels. And once the chips fall, this "promising partner" lands himself in the middle of legal mayhem.
Critically acclaimed narrator Frank Muller reads this unabridged audiocassette with passion and wit, bringing energy and quick-paced dialogue to the story. He accurately portrays a number of characters and accents ranging from thick Southern drawls to a harsh New York dialect. Muller's calm voice carries listeners into this grotesque world of greed and deceit, where subplots and sleazeballs abound.

I picked this book of the top of a stack that my friend was planning on giving to the library. It is the hardback version, and I simply have a weakness for free hardbacks. Read morePublished on July 7 2004 by William Plowden

This is basically a plot idea which is the reverse of the ending of the firm. If the firm ends with the identity vanishing of special witnesses, new life, new identity, past... Read morePublished on June 22 2004 by Vikram Ramanathan
