The Partner

A gripping crime thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of mystery and suspense


A man will do almost anything for ninety million dollars.
So will its rightful owners.

Patrick S. Lanigan died in a car crash in February 1992.

He left behind a mourning wife, young daughter and bright future.

Six weeks after his death, ninety million dollars disappeared from the law firm he'd worked at.

It was then that his partners knew he was still alive.

And the chase was on . . .
