This is a good read...not a great one. It did keep my interest but the ending was a disappointment. ( )

Another good John Grisham read, but not one of my favourites. Holds your attention and moves along at a pace without being exceptional. ( )

De bevakade Danilo Silva i flera dagar innan de slutligen grep honom. Han bodde ensam, levde ett stilla liv på en skuggig gata i en småstad i Brasilien; ett enkelt liv i ett enkelt hem, definitivt ingen lyx. Där syntes inga spår av den förmögenhet som de trodde att han hade stulit. Hans utseende var förändrat och han talade ett annat språk. Men Danilo hade ett mångsidigt förflutet. Fyra år tidigare hade han varit Patrick Lanigan, en ung delägare i en ansedd advokatbyrå. Han hade en vacker fru, en nyfödd dotter och en strålande framtid. Sedan, en kall vinternatt, dog Patrick en ohygglig död i en brinnande bil. När han begravdes innehöll kistan bara aska. Patrick följde sin egen begravning på avstånd. Därefter flydde han. Sex veckor senare försvann 90 miljoner från advokatbyråns utlandskonto.

One of his least believeable and most predictable. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385339100, Paperback)

Literary slugger John Grisham returns with a story about-- surprise!--a lawyer in trouble. Patrick Lanigan had been a young partner in a prominent Southern law firm. He had a beautiful wife, a new baby girl, and a bright future. Then one winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car; the casket they buried held nothing but ashes.

A short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial then fled. A fortune was stolen from his ex-firm's offshore account. And Patrick ran, covering his tracks the whole way.

But, now, they've found him.
