WINNER TAKE ALL
Lawyer Marcus Greenwood's newest client seems to have a Dr. Jeykll and Mr. Hyde personality. Some claim Dale Steadman is the consummate businessman; others say he's a drunkard. His ex-wife had abducted their daughter and is hiding her in Germany. And what looks like a simple custody battle turns into a nightmare for Marcus in this riveting legal thriller.
Kristen, Marcus's assistant, built a wall around her heart that no one has been able to penetrate. When she travels to Europe to help with the case, she finds her life in jeopardy. Can Marcus's love bring her home?
WINNER TAKE ALL is a chef d'oeuvre, carefully plotted and detailed, with more twists than corkscrew pasta and just as delicious. (Jan., 400 pp., $22.95)
