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.

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.

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.

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.

Book V, The Partner, is the fifth book in a cycle of seven novels entitled Shattered Covenants. Shattered Covenants narrates the formation, rise, decline, and fall of McKenzie Barber, a global management consulting firm. Previously published books in the cycle include; Present & Past Imperfect The Road to McKenzie Barber The Consultant The Chairman The Partner guides the reader through a six year period (1978 to 1984) in the history of McKenzie Barber and concludes with the end of Ernie Grey's 24 year reign as Chairman and Senior Partner of McKenzie Barber. What was planned as a smooth transition in leadership results in McKenzie Barber's first contested Chairman election. A dissident group of Partners orchestrated by the villainous Clyde Nickerson propose Buzzsaw Pritchard as a candidate to Hamilton Burke III, Ernie's choice as his successor. Burke's leadership image is tarnished by the under performance of several boutique consulting firms which were acquired as part of McKenzie Barber's growth plan for the 1980's. Buzzsaw Pritchard's Federal Service Operations (FSO) has become a key profit contributor in contrast to the cover-up efforts of Burke's Enterprise Group of newly acquired boutique consulting firms. Ernie Grey has become involved in acrimonious divorce proceedings and Toni Alter has become his mistress. Book V, The Partner concludes with a contested Chairman Election that the press references as the Battle of Boca Mirage. Joe Baxter has been elected a Partner and is tapped by Hamilton Burke as his "special project" consultant. In addition Baxter is struggling to gain the leadership position for the Executive Compensation practice following Frank Alvardi's resignation to return to McKenzie Barber's arch consulting firm rival, Robson Allen & Harbridge. If Burke is elected Chairman, Baxter's career positioning with McKenzie Barber is secure. Burke becomes a loser in the election vote, resigns, and Baxter is left alone with a new regime intent on settling old scores. Ernie Grey retires and is elected the non-executive Chairman, of IPCO, a major energy company and Joe Baxter struggles forward for survival under a hostile new regime. Book V rollicks forward with a colorful collection of villains and knaves which include Baxter's affair with Stephany Hart, a megalomaniac securities analyst, his reunion with Bridgette Morgan in the rain at a New York hot dog stand, their courtship and marriage, and a supporting cast of spirited consultants seeking survival on their own terms.

Written at various times, under various influences, the four stories contained in Within the Tides are linked by Conrad's treatment of loyalty and betrayal. They range in setting from the Far East via eighteenth-century Spain to England. The tone shifts from the tragic inevitability of The Planter of Malata and the pathos of Because of the Dollars to the gothic The Inn of the Two Witches and the grim humour of The Partner. The form of the stories was experimental but does not obscure Conrad's humanity or his search for moral truth.
