A family, and the security to enjoy it: that's all Tom and Anna Reed ever wanted. But years of infertility treatments, including four failed attempts at in-vitro fertilization, have left them with neither. So when their downstairs tenant--a recluse whose promptly delivered cashier's checks were barely keeping them afloat--dies in his sleep, the $400,000 they find stashed in his kitchen seems like fate. But Tom and Anna soon realize that their tenant wasn't a hermit who squirreled away his pennies. He was a criminal who double-crossed some of the most dangerous men in Chicago.

"When their downstairs tenant dies, debt-ridden Tom and Anna Reed feel like they've won the lottery -- there's $400,000 stashed in the tenant's kitchen and no reason not to keep the money for themselves. Too bad the cash didn't exactly belong to the dead man, but rather came from a drug deal gone bad -- and there are now several not-so-nice people looking for both the money and the missing drugs. So, do regular people Tom and Anna keep the money, or cut their losses and give it back? Read this "stellar performance" (Publishers Weekly) to find out, or watch the upcoming 2014 movie, starring James Franco and Kate Hudson. Either way, be wary of sudden windfalls."
