They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him.  He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in a small town 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.
