Book Review: Pokergeist by Michael Phillip Cash

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge,from the author, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it

 Since we talked about Halloween books for kids, it's only right to share some adult books too, right?

Pokergeist  cover


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.


Once again Michael takes a simple idea- Vegas crossed with a ghost tale of redemption- and makes something totally unique and satisfying. You start his books sayong you'll read a couple of chapters and end reading most of the book into the wee hours of the morning, as you don't want to put down the tale. Michael is so adept with his characters that you feel like you know them, their nuances are perfectly realistic and true to the tale being told. Add the classic 6 degrees of separation, and a ghost on a mission, and you have a tale perfect for the Halloween season, and one that you'll be talking about long after you finish reading it.
