The Partner Book Description :

_______________________________________ A man will do almost anything for ninety million dollars. So will its rightful owners. They found him in a small town in Brazil, near the border with Paraguay. He had a new name, Danilo Silva, and his appearance had been changed by plastic surgery. The search had taken four years. They'd chased him around the world, always just missing him. It had cost their clients $3.5 million. But so far none of them had complained. The man they were about to kidnap had not always been called Danilo Silva. Before he had had another life, a life which ended in a car crash in February 1992. His gravestone lay in a cemetery in Biloxi, Mississippi. His name before his death was Patrick S. Lanigan. He had been a partner at an up-and-coming law firm. He had a pretty wife, a young daughter, and a bright future. Six weeks after his death, $90 million disappeared from the law firm. It was then that his partners knew he was still alive. And the chase was on... _______________________________________ ‘A master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos' – Irish Independent 'John Grisham is the master of legal fiction' – Jodi Picoult 'The best thriller writer alive' – Ken Follett ‘John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers’ – Telegraph ‘Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller’ – The Times ‘Grisham's storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own.’ – Daily Record ‘Masterful – when Grisham gets in the courtroom he lets rip, drawing scenes so real they're not just alive, they're pulsating’ – Mirror ‘A giant of the thriller genre’ – TimeOut

The Partner Book Description :

They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered. He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well.But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death. When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes.From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-law firm's offshore account. And Patrick fled some more. But they found him. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's The Litigators.

The Partner Book Description :

One bullet changed her life In a heart-stopping moment she'd never stop reliving, Risa Taylor lost everything—her partner, her friends, her career and her self-confidence. The family she was never close to has taken a step back and there's nowhere else to turn. Things can't get much worse. Except, of course, they can. Every officer-involved shooting is investigated by Internal Affairs, and the man in charge is Grady Wilson, who's known for his unorthodox methods and his unquestionable results. At first glance, the case seems like a slam dunk, especially when the ballistics report shows that the bullet that killed her partner came from Risa's gun. But a phone call from an anonymous informant, and the feelings he starts to have for Risa, have Grady looking a little deeper, determined to find out what really happened on that steamy night in Houston.

Readers will find revealing statistics and real life stories shared by partners who kindly took part in the first UK survey of sex addiction partners.

The Partner Track Book Description :

Ingrid Yung's life is full of firsts. A first-generation Chinese American, the first lawyer in her family, she's about to collect the holy grail of "firsts" and become the first minority woman to make partner at the venerable old Wall Street law firm Parsons Valentine & Hunt. Ingrid has perfected the art of "passing" and seamlessly blends into the old-boy corporate culture. She gamely banters in the corporate cafeteria, plays in the firm softball league, and earnestly racks up her billable hours. But when an offensive incident at the summer outing threatens the firm's reputation, Ingrid's outsider status is suddenly thrown into sharp relief. Scrambling to do damage control, Parsons Valentine announces a new Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, commanding Ingrid to spearhead the effort. Only she's about to close an enormous transaction that was to be her final step in securing partnership. For the first time, Ingrid must question her place in the firm. Pitted against her colleagues, including her golden-boy boyfriend, Ingrid begins to wonder whether the prestige of partnership is worth breaching her ethics. But in The Partner Track by Helen Wan, can Ingrid risk throwing away the American dream that is finally within her reach?

IT Outsourcing Part 1 Contracting the Partner Book Description :

As companies focus on the core specialisms, most will look to the benefits of outsourcing some, if not all, of the IT services required. The benefits include: cost-efficient operations; delivery of IT services at lower cost through economies of scale; improvements in time-to-market of IT solutions; improvements in capability and quality of IT service delivery. This essential guide looks at the procedures needed to achieve all these benefits when contracting an outsourcing partner. It explains the benefits of a well thought-out and practical approach to selecting a partner; a partner, indeed, whose performance may make or break an organization’s delivery to market. This book is a key reference guide to anyone procuring IT services and also to those who are responsible for maintaining the contract once signed. By covering all aspects of the Outsourcing contracting process, its guidance will help reduce risks and miscommunication. In addition its approach to the Request for Proposal (also known as Invitation to Tender) shows how clarity at this stage can deliver significant benefits as the services go live in the operational phase.
