Wouldn't you just kill for a five-star, fantasy vacation filled with excitement, elbow rubbing with "The Beautiful People," and a chance at fame and fortune? Would you do it to make all your dreams come true? Talk show host Ga'Norea Jackson did and she became an overnight sensation.
Now, in the National Lottery Association's third winning season of combining two of the nation's favorite pastimes, playing the lottery and watching executions, Peter James finally gets his chance. All he has to do is pull the lever. How hard can that be?
Follow Peter behind the scenes for one week as he gets caught up in media frenzy, decides which former death row inmate (now a "Lottery Candidate") to execute on the show, and falls for his chauffeur, Allison Davies, whose secret past with one of the candidates jumps into the spotlight. Watch as Peter becomes an unwitting pawn to his idol Hank Maxwell, the host of the NLA's show, who will use anyone he can in his unsavory schemes for money, power, and ratings. And don't forget to breathe as Peter wrestles his conscience to pull the lever on the spectacular live broadcast.
