Powerball 310

Life gets complicated when a young journalist stumbles on a murder scene and becomes entangled with a gang of four experts who have pulled off a computer heist of a huge Powerball lottery jackpot.

In a high-tech plot to steal a huge Powerball lottery jackpot, lottery insider Rodger McCormack teams up with a computer programmer, an arrogant French mathematician, and a well-connected banker. Their scheme involves prime numbers and allows them to trick the lottery computer into issuing a winning ticket moments after the numbers have been drawn. Before their banker can secure the money, things start to go wrong. Keith Evans, a young journalist comes to town to interview Rodger, and along with Rodger’s daughter Melissa, becomes entangled with the gang in a web of murder and deception. As the gang struggles to hold onto their prize, the young couple closes in on the truth.

This book is great fun. It’s not too dark – no crazed serial killers or sociopaths here, but ordinary greedy people who think they’re cleverer than most. The reader gets to sit back and watch how Lady Luck plays havoc with them. It’s a bit of a thriller, a murder mystery spiced up with some police procedural, but much more than a simple whodunit. Two crimes collide as the unwitting heroes muddle their way to the truth. The reader roots for the good guys yet has sympathy for the bad guys too. It’s a caper, a moral tale, and a love story that moves along at a brisk pace to a satisfying finish.

"No, not a fake, all legit. But you are right, it's a lot of money and maybe there is more work involved. I'll double the fee, how about two hundred thousand?"
Sidney looked at him coolly and his expression left no doubt in Trevor's mind that the game was up. "I think just having had this conversation is going to cost you one hundred thousand. For my discretion. My rule of thumb is not to get involved in anything that someone doesn't need to graduate high school to figure out you broke the law." Sidney stood up. "I never want to leave a courtroom except through the front door."
