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.
About the Author
Frank Cottrell Boyce is a screenwriter whose films include "Welcome to Sarajevo, "Hilary and Jackie and "24 Hour Party People. "Millions is his first book. He is not a millionaire and has no plans to rob a bank. However, during a short-lived career as an assistant at a puppet show, he earned a fortune entirely in small change. He believes this is how he first became interested in the problems created by user-unfriendly cash. Mr. Boyce lives in Liverpool, England, with his wife and family of seven children.
