Journal Entry 1 by winggoldenwattlewing from Canberra, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Wednesday, March 03, 2021
A man will do almost anything for ninety million dollars. So will its rightful owners. They found him in a small town in Brazil. He had a new name, Danilo Silva, and his appearance had been changed by plastic surgery. The search had taken four years. They'd chased him around the world, always just missing him. It had cost their clients $3.5 million. But so far none of them had complained.
The man they were about to kidnap had not always been called Danilo Silva. Before he had had another life, a life which ended in a car crash in February 1992. His gravestone lay in a cemetery in Biloxi, Mississippi. His name before his death was Patrick S. Lanigan. He had been a partner at an up-and-coming law firm. He had a pretty wife, a young daughter, and a bright future. Six weeks after his death, $90 million disappeared from the law firm.
It was then that his partners knew he was still alive. And the chase was on.

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.
