In the year 2067, Bobby Ackman is a proud man with a chip on his shoulder, toiling in the Tabitha City slums, enduring a life of poverty and despair when he spends his last dollar on a sordid lottery ticket.
It’s one of the government’s most insidious games, rewarding one yearly winner with a windfall of prize-money, and allowing them to select one of their fellow citizens for execution. Against incomprehensible odds, Bobby has matched all seven numbers from the absurd drawing of numbered ping-pong balls. His incessant lust for retribution against the man who derailed his once-promising career inside the dystopian government is at once galvanized.
Or so he thought.
Devlin Johnson is a man with powerful friends who can help him escape Bobby’s morbid snare of damnation. A violent storm of conspiracy, conflict, and political intrigue ensues. And yet it is the man Bobby sees in the mirror, and the inexorable voice he hears inside his head, that ultimately prove to be his own worst enemy.
