It was a one-in-a-million chance. A bag crammed with cash comes tumbling out of the air and lands right at Damian´s feet. Suddenly the Cunningham brothers are rich. Very rich. They can buy anything they want. There´s just one problem -- they have only seventeen days to spend all the money before it becomes worthless. And the crooks who stole the cash in the first place are closing in -- fast.
A funny, brilliantly clever and utterly thrilling debut novel that is, quite simply, unforgettable.
