Patrick Lanigan died in an accident in February 1992; he was buried in Mississippi. He had a beautiful wife, a young daughter and a promising future. Within six weeks of his death, $90 million disappeared from the accounts of the law firm of which he was a partner. After 4 years they found him with a new name and a new appearance in a small town in Brazil. They were sure they had finally found the man. What were they going to do now?

The book is a best seller: rightly so because it captures the reader from the beginning to the end and it is not easy to put it down because of the suspense, the rhythm, the drama, the magnificent elaboration of the characters -both main and secondary-. It is agile and very entertaining. The details are very well taken care of. The ending is unexpected and surprising. It has some sensual scenes. The author wrote this novel in the nineties, a decade in which he was the best selling thriller writer.
