Book Review-Pokergeist-Michael Phillip Cash

Wednesday, August 12, 2015


I absolutely love the way this author writes! I have read and reviewed every single one of his books which are listed in About the Author below. Do I have a favorite? No, I love them all--I love how he brings ghosts into the realm of the living-you can't help but laugh at their antics. Of course The Hanging Tree, which is actually a short novella still resonates through my brain every once in a while-if you get a chance --read it. Actually I would suggest you read all of Michael Cash's books if you enjoy a bit of laughter with really good and interesting plots! Every one of them is a stand alone-except the Battle for Darracia series which is totally suitable for teens and adults alike and all three books can now be found in one volume.

Poker can be an addiction and in the case of Clutch Henderson--even unto death. He wants that gold bracelet that the winner of the tournament gets. Unfortunately he dies while playing with a kid who beat him. Telly, a computer programmer who just lost his job and is thinking about playing Poker for a living unfortunately makes the same wish at the same time as Clutch. Clutch is relentless----he follows Telly everywhere until he finally gets him to buy into the tournament--not an easy task. But is there more then one ghost cheating? You will have to read the book to find out--and by the way--the ending will have you smiling!!

About the book: (from Amazon)

Sometimes life, as well as death, is about second chances. Luckless Telly Martin doesn't have a clue. An awful gambler trying to scrape by as a professional poker player, he becomes the protégé of world famous poker champion Clutch Henderson. The only catch…Clutch is a ghost. Telly and Clutch must navigate the seedy gambling underbelly of Las Vegas learning to trust each other in order to win the elusive International Series of Poker, repair their shattered personal relationships and find redemption in this life and the hereafter.
