For if LuAnn Tyler comes home, she will be pitted against the deadliest contestant of all: the chameleonlike financial mastermind who changed her life. And who can take it away at will... Download and start listening now!

    " This book captivated me. It's highly suspenseful and a quick read. Made me think long and hard about the meaning of money and the consequences of having too much. How far would YOU go to win the lottery? Tough call. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jayce | 2/9/2014

    " I found the writing and the subject matter to be somewhat boring, so I couldn't finish this one. Maybe it's because I'd just read another novel set around the same time (1997) which caused it to feel dated. "
