Alvirah Meehan, one of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, returns in these dazzling, intertwined tales of sleuthing and suspense. Alvirah, the former cleaning lady who struck it rich in the lottery, made her first appearance in Weep No More, My Lady. Now, with her devoted mate, Willy, the ever-resourceful Alvirah delves into crime-solving on a grand scale -- and with her own inimitable style. Among their many adventures, Alvirah and Willy find a dead actress in their Central Park South condominium upon their return from London in "The Body in the Closet." Needing a break from the big city, they escape to Cape Cod -- only to meet a would-be heiress framed for murder in "Death on the Cape." When Alvirah and Willy seek the tranquillity of the Cypress Point Spa, it's the perfect getaway -- until a jewel thief turns up in "The Lottery Winner." Back in Manhattan, the search for a neighbor's missing newborn makes for a suspense-filled Christmas in "Bye, Baby Bunting."
Since 1994, the UK's National Lottery has created 2,300 millionaires. Expensive cars, big houses and dream holidays are all top of the wish list for those ordinary people whose lives are changed with a winning lottery ticket.

For the first time five winners share the details of their shopping sprees and the highs and lows of their lives once they became millionaires. "We Won The Lottery" also goes behind the scenes at the National Lottery to reveal funny facts, the luckiest numbers, the unusual purchases and exactly what happens when you win. "Quick Reads" are exciting, short, fast-paced books by leading, bestselling authors, specifically written for emergent readers and adult learners.
HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY WITH THE LAW OF ATTRACTION was written by Law of Attraction lottery winner, teacher and author Eddie Coronado. Based on interviews with actual winners who have used the Law of Attraction to win lottery prizes, this book provides the metaphysical tools and insights that are necessary to win lottery and contest prizes through the creative power of thoughts and feelings. Although this book contains the manifestation techniques of people who have won money, these metaphysical exercises can be used to attract the perfect mate, a new career, financial success, or anything that you can make a part of your beliefs and feelings. There is no limit to how much money and success you can manifest through the Law of Attraction because this immense spiritual power does not have an opinion about what you should or should not have. You can use the Law of Attraction to manifest ten cents or ten million dollars. The determining factor is belief and expectancy, which can be harnessed by using the spiritual tools discussed in this book.THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUR PARTS:PART 1: This section explores the tools that are used for the manifestation techniques in this book. The tools covered are as follows: Affirmations, Creative Visualization, Expectation, Gratitude, and the Practice of Receiving. You should take the time to carefully read this section even if you are familiar with the Law of Attraction and the power of intention. This section contains a number of insights and explanations that may have been missed by other authors and teachers. For example, the Practice of Receiving is a powerful tool that can help you attract a lot of money, yet many Law of Attraction books do not mention this important exercise. In addition, I have included some helpful information about gratitude and affirmations as it relates to manifesting money. Affirmations of words, thoughts, feelings, and actions are also covered. Finally, the most important element of any manifestation technique is creative visualization, which every Law of Attraction lottery and contest winner has used to win prizes.PART 2: This section includes the manifestation techniques used by the winners who were interviewed for this book. Each winner, including the author, is introduced and his/her manifestation exercise is documented to reflect the exact steps taken to win lottery prizes. No changes have been made in order to preserve the integrity of each winner's method.PART 3: This is a Question and Answer Section that covers the most important questions about the manifestation techniques in this book. The answers have been provided by the lottery winners who were interviewed. This Question and Answer section will provide clarity and direction for those readers who are committed to using the Law of Attraction to manifest lottery prizes. The questions included in this section cover topics such as: Should I buy lots of tickets? How will I know that my intention will work? How long will it take for me to get results? What part does luck play in manifesting lottery prizes? In addition, a host of other important questions are discussed. PART 4: This section contains helpful tips and suggestions that will explain how to implement the following manifestation techniques and how to make the most of them. It also contains information regarding the common denominators of the winners' daily action plan in order to provide a clear understanding of the mental and emotional habits that are necessary for manifesting lottery prizes with the Law of Attraction.
If you have read my other books you know that the Law of Attraction always responds to persistent, committed action. It does so because it is an eternal, spiritual law that is impartial and universal. This means that it will respond to anyone who uses it correctly. And because this power is infinite you can use it to manifest anything you desire, including millions of dollars. In fact, throughout the years many people have used the Law of Attraction to win contests, sweepstakes, and even lottery jackpots. The common denominator among every lottery winner who has manifested a winning ticket is that they were committed to using positive affirmations every day until their desire became their reality. They understood the immense power of their spoken word, and they used it to transform their lives and circumstances. This book will inspire you to do the same. WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOKThis book contains 300 of the most powerful affirmations for manifesting lottery prizes. These affirmations have been used by several lottery winners to win prizes ranging from $50,000.00 to several million dollars. The affirmations in this book are designed to give you a winning edge because they were written to inspire you, awaken your hope, and empower you to manifest the prosperity and abundance you deserve. There are no limits to the amount of money you can manifest with the Law of Attraction. The only limits you have are those within your consciousness, and those limiting beliefs can be changed through the persistent use of positive affirmations. This book provides all the tools you will need to manifest your desires with the power of your spoken word. Once you transform your beliefs and expectations, all the wonderful things you desire will become a part of your life. WHAT THIS BOOK CONTAINSThis book begins with a Question and Answer Section that covers several of the most important questions about the effective use of affirmations. In addition to learning how to develop the habit of using affirmations daily, you will learn the best time to repeat affirmations, how often you should repeat them, how long it will take to change your beliefs, and a lot of other practical information. You will also learn how to harness the power of your spoken word through the use of two rarely used manifestation tools that can be used to increase your prosperity. In addition, you will learn how to double the effectiveness of your affirmations by incorporating a very important element that is often forgotten by most people who use them. After you read the Question and Answer Section, you will find 300 lottery affirmations that will provide you with a powerful, winning edge. By the time you finish reading this book you will be equipped with the tools necessary to transform your life with the dynamic power of your spoken word.

Why did author King Khan write his thrilling Addict Files series? “I was inspired by my own experience with drug abuse, and the devastation it caused in my life,” he says. “I decided to use my experience to write about addiction in a graphic fashion to take the glamour out of drug use, for all those who think of it as an acceptable form of recreation.” In his second book, The Lottery Winner, Tyrone Moxley is a sheltered graduate student attending Catholic University. He is serious, honest, and principled, with values instilled in him by a loving and close-knit family. Paul Vincent is the opposite of Tyrone. He is a self-serving, narcissistic drug abuser who uses anyone he comes across to satisfy his own selfish and petty desires. He also just won the lottery. This novel about a sheltered young man who crosses the path of a despicable lottery winner exposes the naïve Tyrone to the dark elements of drugs, sex, and murder. It is also about loss of innocence, but is tempered with the redeeming power of love and forgiveness. Set in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, this striking tale also tells the love story of a beautiful young woman looking for her knight in shining armor. Will she find him?

Long Odds, Fast Money, and the Battle Over an American Institution
Author: Matthew Sweeney
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA
Category: Social Science
Despite the infinitesimal odds, more than half of Americans admit to occasionally playing the lottery. We wait on long lines and give up our coffee breaks. We scratch tickets, win, and spend the winnings on more scratch tickets. We play our "lucky" numbers, week in and week out. In a country where gambling is ostensibly illegal, this is a strange state of affairs. In colonial Jamestown, the first lottery was created despite conservative opposition to the vice of gambling. Now, 42 states sponsor lotteries despite complaints of liberals who see them as a regressive tax on the poor. Why do we all play this game that brings no rewards, and leaves us rifling through the garbage for the ticket we swear would be a winner if we could only find it? How has this game persisted, even flourished, in defiance of so much opposition? In this observant, intelligent book, Matthew Sweeney gives a history of the American lottery, stopping along the way to give us the bizarre--sometimes tragic--stories that it makes possible: the five-million-dollar miracle man who became a penniless preacher investing in a crackpot energy scheme; the senator whose untimely injury allowed the lottery to pass into law in his home state; and many others. Written with insight and wit, Dreaming in Numbers gives us the people and the stories that built a nationwide institution, for better or worse.
