The Winner

The Winner by David Baldacci Book Summary

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...

- Brilliant story5 star

I enjoyed this book at least as much as I enjoyed the camel club series. Fun to read.

- The Winner5 star

A great read. Impossible to put this book down. Fascinating story.

- Suspenseful till the end!5 star

The Winner is a great book by Baldacci that kept the suspense up until the very end. I couldn't read the pages fast enough.

- The Winner3 star

A well-told, creative, if implausible story by a writer I always enjoy. However, the tale was way too long for my liking. I think at least a third of the book could have been edited out without losing a beat. In your next book, Mr. B., please tighten it up. Surely you' re not paid by the word!

- Slow read3 star

The beginning and middle of the story were very slow, almost boring. The last third of the book was fast-paced, a good read. The ending was predictable, but still satisfying.

- The Winner5 star

Great read. Baldacci doesn't disappoint. If only he wasn't a democrat.

- Fast paced thriller4 star

If you're looking for a page turner that grabs your attention from start to finish, this is a good read. Not too deep; good for reading at the gym or the beach where there are other distractions. If you like Baldacci, I found this to be one of his better books.

- The Winner5 star

I loved this book, the characters, the plot, the intrigue. I hated to see this story end. I really hope it becomes a movie, it would be great.

- Reads like a movie script2 star

It tells the characters which direction to turn, what look to have on their face, and you can hear the movie score in the background. She's poor - but stunningly beautiful and strong and clever! She can ride horses and shoot a gun and do hand to hand combat and even chop wood! She gets the handsome FBI agent in the end and keeps her money! Keep yours.

- The Winner5 star

Has all the elements of his best books! A fun read.

- Reads like a screenplay3 star

Good plot and characters, but the villain was unbelievable. Add to that the never ending details regarding makeup and disguises ( I never want to read the words "spirit gum" again), and you loose a star. Too much unnecessary filler, not enough meat. Stop describing the set decoration and write the book! The author's later work is much improved. That's the good news :)

- Wow!!!!5 star

This story was powerful from beginning to end.

- Great book5 star

One of my favorite writers. Fast paced, interesting characters, good story. Awesome ending.

- Another great one5 star

Great story, plot, character development, ending. I've enjoyed them all and look forward to the next one.

- Great book!5 star

I tend to give up on a book early on if I get bored by the story but this one held my interest all the way through. Highly recommended!

- The winner by David baldacci5 star

Great book!!!! Great page turner and hard to put down :)

- Wonderful story5 star

Loved the pace and characters a great read and satisfactory ending hard to put it down!

- The winner2 star

Not in any way up to Balducci's usual. It is extremely repetitive and dull and also unbelievable-it's just plain boring. The writing does not even sound like him. Ghost writer in the sky?

- The Winner5 star

The best of the sixteen books by Balducci that I have read, so far. Philip Sterk

- Jackson5 star

Top 5 scariest villain ever. I ve read all the Shaw, Camel Club, & King & Maxwell series books, but this was by far his best villain! Jackson MADE this book. The scene were he killed the reporter gave me chills. FANTASTIC!!

- Great read5 star

I read this book years ago and still think of it. It was fun and suspenseful. Loved it! A must read.

- Another winner!5 star

Baldacchi doesn't disappoint. He adds a new twist and perspective on the murder mystery scene. Was sorry the book had to end!

- gaylon5 star

Starts off a little slowly, picks up steam and rushes into a tale that grabs you and doesn't let go until the very end. A great read!

- The Winner5 star

One of the best books I have ever read!!!! I read a lot and really enjoyed the twists of the story, the characters and the inbuilt tension!!!! Keep writing!! Trish Johnson

- A Winner!5 star

Much different than other Baldacci novels I've read, however it grabbed me from about the third chapter and I literally could not stop reading it! I'll probably read it again!

- The Winnet5 star

Awesome book couldn't set it down and read it twice. Both times just as thrilling.

- The Winner5 star

Excellent! Love the way this guy writes.

- Good compelling story, but gun mistakes4 star

As with many authors, there are glaring gun mistakes. Revolvers do not have safeties and guns that do have safeties are disengaged with the shooter's thumb, not finger, etc.... Aside from these glaring errors and more, it is a good read and great story.

- Winner!5 star

Great book!! Looking forward to reading more of his stuff

- Creepy but awesome!!5 star

1 of his best books ever omg!!! I could not put it down love Luann n Riggs especially Riggs very good book but trust me Tht guy was so creep talk abt man of many disguise, I must say I felt like I was in the book!! Love this book good job mr.baldacci!!

- The Winner3 star

Great book! Keeps you guessing until the end! Four stars!

- Spellbinder5 star

Twists and turns in this very readable action thriller. Intelligently drawn characters. A fun ride from start to finish.

- Winner5 star

The best book ever!!!!

- The Winner5 star

This is my favorite Baldacci book. Fast paced with well fleshed out characters and suspense throughout. You'll have to read it twice to not miss any of the action.

- Must read5 star

Excellent book. Great storyline and keeps you wanting more! Must read.

- The Winner5 star

Couldn't put it down... Very different from the usual spy thriller, of which he does a superb job, but none the less, a capturing book... I think this really did happen some years ago, or quite similarly.. Very GOOD read!!!!

- The Winner..outstanding5 star it 2days and I work 18hours a day One of the best yet

- Baldacci wins again!5 star

A gripping story from the start. LuAnn is a perfect patsy, and yet strong enough in the end, and smart enough to overcome the odds. Never disappointed with a Baldacci read.

- Winner5 star

Freaking awesome book!

- The Winner5 star

I started reading most of Baldacci books about the Camel Club (which are also great). My friend suggested I read some of his first works. This book did not let me down. It was intense, intriguing and I could not put it down. The book was so real, I wanted to harm the villain as much as he harmed others and was joyous with the ending.

- The Winner5 star

Loved this book!! Suspense and drama with just a little bit of romance- perfect!! Can't wait to read the author's other works.

- Amazing book5 star

Probably my first David Baldacci book ever and since then I keep going back for more. Great plots and quite suspenseful.

- Okay3 star

The plot was a bit too linear. the story presents some thrilling moments, but once you figure out the plot, there is nothing else to discover.

- Undisciplined Writing3 star

Good plot. Good character development. However, the book was way, way too long. The author must have thought that he was getting paid by the word. I think Mr. Baldacci fell in love with his computer keyboard. For shame... The author is a better writer than this book exemplifies.

- Good book & writer5 star

This is the first book I've read by this author. Very thrilling and suspenseful. I think I'll read some more written by him.

- Worth it!4 star

This was definitely worth the paperback book price. Buy it!

- The Winner5 star


- Loved the premise4 star

Some of the plot seemed a little contrived, but since I'm always on the lookout for a book that's just a little different , this one fit the bill. I'd enjoy seeing this made into a movie, in fact I've got the cast all figured out!

- I love this book!5 star

Please, someone who knows how, with the publishing co. Make this an audiobook as well. In my travels I can't always read. But, I would love to be able to listen to it too. This is one of my favorite books of all time. If you haven't read it, give it a try. It took me a few pages at first but once you get the feeling of the coming story you will appreciate it as a whole.

- Loved it5 star

Read it last summer couldnt put it down
