The Boatwrights are struggling to get by when they win $318 million in the Georgia State lottery. But the family's joy is short-lived when drifter Shaw McBride shows up at their door with a gun, takes the family hostage and demands half of the winnings. If they refuse or try to contact help, Shaw's partner in crime, Romeo Zderko, will kill everyone close to the Boatwrights. Robert Petkoff renders Shaw and Romeo with a perfect blend of menace and panic, while Maggi-Meg Reed's theatrical Southern drawl captures the community perfectly. This is a top-notch presentation with performances that will keep listeners enthralled and entertained from beginning to end. A Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, May 11). (July)
