Once he was a well-liked, well-paid young partner in a thriving Mississippi law firm. Then Patrick Lanigan stole $90 million from his own firm—and ran for his life. For four years, he evaded men who were rich and powerful, and who would stop at nothing to find him. Then, inevitably, on the edge of the Brazilian jungle, they finally tracked him down.

Now Patrick is coming home. And in the Mississippi city where it all began, an extraordinary trial is about to begin. As prosecutors circle like sharks, as Patrick’s lawyer prepares his defense, as Patrick’s lover prays for his deliverance and his former partners wait for their revenge, another story is about to emerge. Because Patrick Lanigan, the most reviled white-collar criminal of his time, knows something that no one else in the world knows. He knows the truth.

From the master of courtroom drama comes the ultimate in suspense—The Partner is John Grisham’s new spellbinding novel.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melinda | 2/19/2014

    " 3 1/2 stars. Pretty typical Grisham. Scott hated the ending, but I thought it was its most redeeming feature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ken Bortner | 2/16/2014

    " I have liked all of Grisham books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jeff Yoak | 2/11/2014

    " There is really nothing wrong with this book. It is a fairly typical Grisham story. For some reason, I just couldn't get to caring. Usually I abandon books, when I do, somewhere between the 10% and 33% marks. I finished over two thirds of this one. I kept catching up on podcasts, which normally only happens between books. I was continually tempted to read something else short in the middle, or spend a drive listening to music. Grisham puts ones foot in front of the other as adeptly as always, and I may pick this up again someday, but at every point I just didn't care how the thing ends up. Finally I decided I'd rather just stop and read something else. That I can think of immediately, this is my least favorite of his books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Corinna Carlson | 2/10/2014

    " I would generally give a Grisham novel a 3 tops but this book was a page turner, I read it back in 1997 and I still remember almost all of it which is pretty odd for me. I have never understood why they have never made a movie out of this book. Of all the Grisham novels that I have read, this one is by far my favourite. "
