For the pure fun of reading, this is a crime caper and a moral tale with a good dose of humor. In a high-tech plot to steal a huge jackpot, lottery insider Rodger McCormack teams up with a well-connected banker, a computer programmer, and an arrogant French mathematician. The gang is able to trick the Pennsylvania Lottery computer into issuing a winning ticket moments after the numbers have been drawn for the $310 million Powerball jackpot. Before their banker can secure the money, things start to go wrong. Keith Evans, a young journalist doing a story on the lottery, comes to town to interview Rodger and soon has the bad luck to be at a crime scene in a bar in gritty South Philadelphia, with his prints on the murder weapon. Along with Rodger’s daughter Melissa, he becomes entangled with the gang in a web of murder and deception. As the police follow their own leads and the gang struggles to hold onto their prize, the young couple closes in on the truth.
