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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mathieu | 2/16/2014

    " A rather typical John Grisham novel, with a quite predictable plot (I found). The second half of this book verges on boredom, only saved from it by the always enjoyable writing style of the author.[return]This makes the very last pages of the book all the more stunning : they trigger a disturbing emotion that I will have a hard time forgetting. "
