Mark Gardiner won a record prize of £ 11 million and was sure that all his problems were a thing of the past. However, though his current problems vanished, he got into new ones that he was not capable of or trained to handling. With his business partner, friend Paul Maddison, Mark won the jackpot. Together they won a record £ 22 million; Mark’s share was £ 11 million. Paul shunned the limelight and retreated in the background while Mark decided to have some fun.
Before he could comprehend it, Mark went through half of his winnings. He gave to friends and relatives, bought expensive cars and houses, married and then divorced, but his problems never seemed to end. His family disowned him as though he had committed a crime. Finally, Mark regained his bearings, grew wiser, and remarried his first wife, the childhood sweetheart he had divorced when he was penniless.

Ianthe intends to share her new found wealth with her near ones and to continue to pursue her law school studies. The main new thing she planned to buy was a new automobile.
