Two young people looking for adventure. Six killers looking for easy money.
Claudia Cooper has led a quiet life as the reverend's daughter and the magistrate's niece. She's always been the good girl and never really had an adventure. When the Christmas Lottery comes to her town, it's her last chance for adventure before she marries and settles down.
Bogdan Popescu comes from a family of doctors so he goes to medical school exactly as expected, but he's always yearned for adventure. When the Brennanmen decide to hold the Christmas Lottery in his uncle's town it's like fate is calling to him. Without even realizing it he's riding into adventure and love, but also danger.
Two young people looking for adventure are about to get a lot more than they bargained for--love and murder.
