LoveReading View on Get Rich or Get Lucky

Get Rich or Get Lucky by Max Nowaz is a darkly comical fantasy thriller that will appeal to fans of Terry Pratchett. Adam has had plenty of plans to get rich but none are working and if anything are making him poorer and more stressed by the day. His latest was to get a bank loan, for a car, and use it as a deposit on a house to do up and sell but fate is conspiring against him until he discovers an old letter bound book of spells, written in German… and then things get really crazy.

Max Nowaz is also the author of The Arbitrator and Timbi's Dream.

Get Rich or Get Lucky Synopsis

Get Rich or Get Lucky is a gripping fantasy thriller that follows Adam who finds himself in control of a magic he never knew existed. After a string of disappointments with his literary career, Adam decides to embark on a get-rich-quick scheme by renovating run-down houses. By chance he discovers a book of magic in the basement of a derelict property and he can't believe his luck. Excited by his find, he invite his friends Dick and Charlie, to tell them about it. But things quickly take a turn for the worse when Adam inadvertently casts a spell which turns Dick into a crayfish. Adam is unable to reverse the spell immediately and while searching for the solution, leaves Dick in the garden pond, which gets flooded and Dick disappears. Dick's wife Rachael reports him missing and the police then accuse Adam of wrongdoing. Things continue to spiral out of control when Adam is burgled and the book gets stolen. He then discovers that a powerful, evil warlock is looking for the book. Adam finds himself in a race against time, to recover the book and thwart the warlock to stand any chance of bringing Dick back, if he can. From the author of the sci-fi adventure The Arbitrator, Get Rich or Get Lucky is a black humoured fantasy thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seats. It will appeal to readers who enjoy fantasy fiction, in addition to those who also enjoy fast-paced thrillers.
