In the future, the ultra-rich control everything. They sponsor the police department and the government.
For entertainment, the ultra-rich enjoy gambling. They developed a lottery by sending invites to a group of people. Those invited have the option to decline or to play. The last player alive will win several million dollars.
As you can image, some of the lottery players start to murder other players and the police department refuses to investigate.
The story is interesting and wild at times. The hero’s actions in the end, will make you want to jump up and cheer. This is a wonderful book and I recommend it.
