Publisher's Summary

Everybody wants to win the lottery. A million pounds, perhaps five million, even 10 million. How wonderful! Emma Carter buys a ticket for the lottery every week, and puts the ticket carefully in her bag. She is 73 years old and does not have much money. She would like to visit her son in Australia, but plane tickets are very expensive.

Jason Williams buys lottery tickets every week too. But he is not a very nice young man. He steals things. He hits old ladies in the street, snatches their bags and runs away....

Terrible,

What a waste of time listening to this audio file. The story was alright but very slow.
The narration was diabolical I'm afraid, the worst narration I have ever heard.
I won't be listening to anymore narration by Rachel Bavidge sorry. also the ending was cut short.
Not satisfactory hours listening.
