This is the 33rd Novella in the series involving the Murder Squad team of Joseph Lind, Shelley Shields and Kaleesha Petrova.
Everyone has that desire to win first prize in a Jackpot Lottery, Lotto or Ozlotto. How easy would it make life more liveable?
A Battler, a poor old Pensioner has that experience.
Seventeen million dollars!
A week after his departure from this Earth.
With no other worldly goods of any value, he has never bothered to make out a Will, instead leaving verbal instructions that his long time Carer, his daughter, was to inherit his meagre belongings.
Not a problem is the consensus ... until she inherits 17 million problems that lead to murder and mayhem with a completely dysfunctional family emerging from the fog of alienation to claim a portion of the prize.
Through all this, the young Probational Detective Kaleesha Petrova is confronted with a scenario that emotionally, she is unable to handle and she submits her resignation from the Murder Squad and the Police Force.
It is a case that effects both Detective Lind and Shields more than they would have liked and the departure of their young protégé leaves them questioning their worth in the scheme of things.
