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.

Bought from the store in Tharwa, ACT.

This reminded me of the author's book 'The Racketeer ', which was another story of legal manipulation. 'The Partner' I felt moved slower though. For that other story I wrote, "A rollicking tale of corruption, imprisonment, regaining freedom." Perhaps less of a "rollicking tale" here, but still an enjoyable read. I am rating this one one star less though.

A comment: It grated with me that Eva was referred to as "the girl" by several characters. It sounds so dismissive. Patrick was never referred to as "the boy". That would have sounded wrong; as referring to Eva "a girl" does. She's a grown woman; a lawyer; she shouldn't be made to sound juvenile.

Released at the Bookcrossing meet-up in King O'Malley's Pub in Civic, ACT, 24 February 2017. Enjoy.
