The story revolves around a store called Bet Your Life in Huntington Mall in Huntington Beach, California. Two local football players, Jason Lanning and Kurt Anaka, were murdered. The local owner of Bet Your Life, Annabelle Thompson, was accused of murder but later released. Coverley uses fictitious headlines from a non-existent newspaper, Orange County Ledger-Times, to describe the narrative. Eventually, Joseph Poole, takes over the store and grants a free wish. The tie in with Fibonacci and his numbers he introduced in a book entitled Liber Abaci is with gambling. Fibonacci numbers were widely used in betting on the stock market (technical analysis) during the late twentieth century.
