Publisher's Summary

Winner of the British Book Awards, Lifetime Achievement Award, 2007.
They kidnapped him in a small town in Brazil. He had changed his name and his appearance, but they were sure they had their man. Four years before, he had been called Patrick S. Lanigan. He had died in a car crash in February 1992. His gravestone lay in a cemetery in Biloxi, Mississippi. He had been a partner at an up and coming law firm, had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Six weeks after his death, $90 million had disappeared from the law firm. It was then that his partners knew he was still alive.

Good story, Great Narration

The plot was good, but the presentation is excellent. Overall I had a breezy experience like walking along a beach. Loved all the Southern accents.

The music made me crazy!!!!!

Where does The Partner rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Partner ranks probably at the top of the Grisham's I have listened before

What about Michael Beck’s performance did you like?

Love Michael Beck's interpretation of the book

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book left me heartbroken

Any additional comments?

The music during the narration did not enhance the book and sometimes got in the way as it was too loud.
