Imagine yourself the winner of a $28-million lottery, and only one other person has a winning ticket. JoLayne has finally won, but so have Bode and Chub, who decide to "git the other ticket." Ed Asner tells of Tom Krome, an investigative reporter who has been demoted to human interest stories, who interviews JoLayne, then teams up with her to get her ticket back. Asner portrays Bode and Chub as dumb hicks who, despite their winning, will do anything to get it all, including assault and kidnapping. Hiaasen sprinkles this tangled tale of deception with humor while Asner brings out the ironic and satiric qualities of each character's personality and actions.
