Chicago journalist Cat Marsala has just begun her assignment on the state lottery when murder falls into the picture--literally--as lottery official takes a leap during the multistate lottery conference.
Suicide...or murder? It's curious to Cat--and to the police--that the guy took his mighty plunge right before his meeting with her. Especially curious since he'd hinted at some great expose material--such as "misappropriation" of lottery funds.
Cat's investigation into the numbers game is fascinating, educational...and dangerous. Because the money is big, the stakes are sky-high--and a killer is not about to let a nosy free-lance journalist spoil the odds.
