Synopses & Reviews
Two brothers, Damian and Anthony, accidentally find themselves caught up in a train robbery during Britain's countdown to join the Euro. Out of nowhere a bag full of money falls right in from of Damian's feet and the brothers become extremely wealthy. They can buy everything they ever wanted. However, there is only one problem; they only have seventeen days to spend all the money before it becomes worthless. Meanwhile, the crooks who stole the money in the first place are closing in.
A funny, brilliantly clever and utterly thrilling story about the perils and pleasures of pounds and pennies.
