James Oswald Neville has a winning lottery ticket for the jackpot of £9.7m) and sets off for home to tell his wife and family the unbelievable news. On the way he is mugged, seriously injured and his wallet is stolen. They discard his “emptied” wallet by throwing it from London’s Tower Bridge where it lands on a trawler passing under the bridge bound for Holland. Neville comes out of his coma three months later, but not before his two sons have realised the unclaimed lottery ticket contains their father’s favourite numbers; numbers. Thomas Neville, in his capacity as a Wimbledon tennis reporter, hunts down the lost ticket.
Will he find it in time before the 180 days in which the Lotto ticket can be claimed? The race is on.
