New in crime fiction for February: the conclusion to Peter May’s Isle of Lewis trilogy; a new Tess Monaghan thriller by Laura Lippman; and the tale of an English estate agent who is a very unreliable narrator.
One of the richest Powerball jackpots ever offered is up for grabs on Saturday, with the multi-state lottery's grand prize reaching an estimated $380 million after the previous drawing failed to produce a winner. Powerball jackpots start at $40 million and grow until at least one player comes up with the winning number at a drawing. The jackpot winners receive either payments over 29 years or a smaller cash lump sum. The cash option for the jackpot was about $257 million.
