A rags-to-riches deal for single mother LuAnn Tyler is deadlier than she ever could have imagined in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller from David Baldacci.

She is twenty, beautiful, dirt-poor, and hoping for a better life for her infant daughter when LuAnn Tyler is offered the gift of a lifetime, a $100 million lottery jackpot. All she has to do is change her identity and leave the U.S. forever.

It's an offer she dares to refuse...until violence forces her hand and thrusts her into a harrowing game of high-stakes, big-money subterfuge. It's a price she won't fully pay...until she does the unthinkable and breaks the promise that made her rich.

For if LuAnn Tyler comes home, she will be pitted against the deadliest contestant of all: the chameleon-like financial mastermind who changed her life. And who can take it away at will...

    When I picked up the novel The Winner, I wasn’t expecting it to be a David Baldacci best seller. I read the back cover and wasn’t immediately interested but it was the only book of his I could find at the time. But after reading it I absolutely love the story. I especially like his concept and the whole idea itself. It is a brilliantly written novel. I would recommend her to anyone

  • Good shut in read.

    Well written, suspenseful and a great read even if a bit predictable.
  • Good no, great title

    By nameless blonde
    I loved this story…the stress I felt made it even more of a page turner. The baddie was one of the most intriguing. Such a fearful character makes me worry about that crafty Balducci mind…geez who can think up this stuff!Plugging in my night light and setting the house alarm…but… probably won’t help settle my nerves. Thanks for the crafty, fun read.
  • Interesting book but has some errors.

    By Bob Ktown
    This book contains one glaring continuity error and several smaller errors that don’t agree with the time in which the book is set or with what is being described. For a Baldacci book, this is disappointing.
  • Read it straight through!
