Item description for Winner Take All by T. Davis Bunn...
Marcus Glenwood's stunning legal victory over the New Horizons corporation (in the best-selling thriller, The Great Divide) came with a severe personal price. Now, barely a year later, Glenwood is slowly getting back on his feet, back into his legal practice, and back into a deeper relationship with Kirsten Stansted.
But when the new CEO of New Horizons--the company that once attempted to have Marcus killed--comes to him seeking representation in a personal matter, Marcus is stunned. Dale Steadman's story is heart wrenching, but Marcus's instincts for self-preservation urge him to turn down the case. Steadman's one-year-old daughter has been kidnapped--by his ex-wife, the baby's mother, world-renowned opera diva Erin Brandt. Kirsten finally convinces Marcus to help Steadman, and soon the case becomes a media sensation. And before long, someone is after Marcus--and Kirsten--using deadly scare tactics.
T. Davis Bunn carefully crafts his novels to include a strong spiritual dimension, plumbing the depths of his characters' faith under crisis. Intercut with edge-of-your-seat courtroom scenes, his riveting new thriller takes readers from the American South to London and Germany...and from the depths of the soul to the heights of the spirit.

Reviews - What do customers think about Winner Take All?
I do not recommend the Audiobook version Jul 4, 2006
This review pertains to the abridged Audiobook version of this novel. I listened to it recently and found it rushed, the plot hard to follow, and missing depth. I didn't really understand the characters and their relationships, and found myself lacking emotional involvement in the climactic scene involving Marcus and Kirsten. Reading the rest of these reviews, I realized that most of what readers have commented about (the courtroom drama, the relationship between Kirsten and Marcus, the parallel between the pasts of Kirsten and Erin) was taken out in the abridged audio version. And the audiobook really gives no indication of why this would be called Christian Fiction at all. These seem to be essential parts that would have made the book much more enjoyable- so, I recommend that you read the book (which sounds good, now that I read more about it) rather than listening to the abridged audiobook!
I hope there is a sequel... Aug 22, 2004
I was so happy to have a continuation of "The Great Divide" that I dove right into this book. While I did enjoy it, I was left with a sense of incompleteness. It did answer so many questions about Kirsten and her relationship with Marcus; but, it did not give the reader a sense of closure. It ended too abruptly and I was shocked to find that there was not another chapter or an epilogue to give a glimpse into the future. Yes, the reader supposes that Kirsten and Marcus have their long awaited talk about her past and the wedding then takes place. However, it would have been nice to at least have a page that simply skipped ahead to perhaps the day of their wedding and made mention of the attendants and a sentence as to how their lives had changed in the meantime. At least a page saying that the wedding was in fact taking place, such as the mention of the funeral in the epilogue of "The Great Divide". Perhaps the author was just setting us up for a third in what would be a series about Marcus Glenwood. I certainly hope so. It would also be nice to have a third book where Glenwood has a better outlook and doesn't seem so defeated all the time. Now that he and Kirsten are together maybe he can stop being such a victim and stop obsessing about her so much.
Quality Continues Apr 14, 2004
I have enjoyed every one of T. Davis Bunn's books. I've bought his books from the beginning. I continue to enjoy his books, and this one is great as usual. Without getting into details, Winner Take All continues to give me a very interesting, fast paced story with great characters.
Mr. D I get a bonus Jan 15, 2004
Winner Take all is an awesome example of courage and boldness. The beginning for me was a little slow to get me interested but about half to three quarters of the way through it got more intense and exciting. Since Bunn is a christain author I do think that he could of added a bit more of Jesus, But to an extent he did show how much evil is in the world and how good always prevails. Even in the hard times. I would read another of Bunns novels.Definately
Glenwood is back! Dec 3, 2003
Marcus Glenwood is back! But as much as I hate to admit it, this does not hold a candle to The Great Divide. I learned about opera a little bit... YUCK! I was about ready at one point and time to give up until I was about 2/3 of the way done with it and I stuck it out. I enjoyed the ending, but this book could have been so much more promising. Believe it or not, I thought this book was maybe 3 3/4 stars, but not four. In my opinion, Bunn fell short because I really didn't see much of a witness all in all for Jesus. When Bunn puts Jesus in light of everything, then he scores a 5, but this time, AH, not quite. I still enjoy Bunn's work. I'm looking forward to the chance to read The Warning or The Ultimatum.
