    [synopsis] => Counterfeit Luck When good souls whisper sage words to three inmates about luck, everything changes.  True, these inmates were born for the part-Hannah, an intuitive, visiting journalism student in for a short stay to earn story creditability; Jake, a young animal sculptor in for a dubious accident; and Doc, a street-wise prison veteran-but what these souls called Ray taught them about luck brought changes no one imagines. The deeper Hannah, Jake and Doc ruminate over what Ray's luck really is-that it cannot be given away, it does accumulate, and it will withdraw if misused-the more they realize their headway blocking skepticism. Even as their sketchy jailer morphs into a decent guy and prison crime drops to zero, they aren't convinced that luck can be so potent. But when Ray's soul science sinks in, and luck affably embraces the prison population and seeps into the nearby, closed-to-strangers rural town, and turns it on-a-dime to openheartedly befriending outsiders, they begin to believe. Meanwhile, William Abbott, the prison's humanistic warden, marvels at the swarming new behavior in his prison, but has no idea what's causing it. When Hannah, Jake and Doc are released from prison early, these gains fall faster than a movie meteor speeds to earth. Prison crimes rocket to Mars, the prison models danger and chaos, their former jailer body-doubles his uglier self, while the town retreats to native grumpiness. The warden, seething over injured and dying inmates, desperately seeks answers.  It turns out learning the basics of luck stuck in prison was easier than living luck in freedom. Hannah and Jake, now a couple, are visited one last time for a life correction. After hard bargaining with their former warden, Abbott accepts Hannah and Jake's plan to use a willing inmate to save a precious young girl's life from certain death-the first in a plan that saves the lives of thousands-in exchange for finally learning how his crime dropped and rose again-and what it takes to reduce it.  The surprising results seem wonderfully possible in what is the first book of its kind. Counterfeit Luck is an irresistible romp through untouched territory as it chases a teary, life charging journey of hope.
