Have you ever seen a 7 million dollar winning lottery ticket? Shockingly it was stolen from Lucky O'Leary! I guess Lucky isn't so lucky after all. The best detectives Josh, Ruth Rose and Dink go to the lottery headquarters to try and crack the case. Will they find the missing ticket or is Lucky doomed to be unlucky forever?

My favorite part was when the detectives found the person who stole the lottery ticket. I liked this part because I think people getting arrested is cool. I like this book because it is a mystery and I like mysteries. Also it is an exciting book. There are many clues and suspects throughout the book which makes it harder to solve. I like the challenge of solving the mystery. This book is like other books by the same author because all the books use descriptive words and some of the same characters.

I recommend this book to students in grades 2 to 4. This book is an enjoyable mystery. You will like the writing style.
