Discussing Books @ the Southfield Public Library
The Southfield Library's Creecy Book Club will discuss the book, "Winner" by David Baldacci at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, April 10, 2012. The meeting will be held at 2 p.m. in the Library Meeting Room and then again at 7 p.m. in the Southfield Room.
Winner, by David Baldacci, is about LuAnn Tyler, a twenty-year-old unwed mother, who can use her fists as well as her her wits, a woman striving to escape an abusive relationship and a life of endless poverty. Suddenly, a mysterious Mr. Jackson makes her an offer he thinks no one can refuse: a guarantee to be the next winner of the $100 million national lottery.
But LuAnn won't do it. At first. Then, less than 24 hours later, she is fighting for her life and running from a false murder charge. Jackson's offer — and its condition that she leave the country forever — seems to be her only hope. She accepts his proposition and the new life the unlimited wealth buys her and her infant daughter. Ten years later, LuAnn disobeys Jackson and secrety returns to the United States, where she is still wanted for murder.
LuAnn's life is shattered when a canny reporter smelling a scam in the national lottery picks up her trail, and Jackson, a seemingly omniscient master of impersonation, comes to punish her for disobeying him. At the same time, the FBI is set on her track when investigators suspect someone may have fixed the lottery.
