A young man and a ghost team up to win a poker championship title in Cash’s brilliantly engrossing fourth installment in A Haunting on Long Island Series. An awful gambler, Telly Martin is trying his best to scrape by as a professional poker player after losing his important job in computer sector. But his life takes a strange turn after he is forced to become the protégé of world-famous poker champion Clutch Henderson. The only catch…Clutch is a ghost and is looking to win the championship title before he crosses over to the other side. This ghost story goes beyond revenge and redemption: Cash takes what at first seems like a fantastical scenario and fills it with all the struggle, turmoil, stress, and messiness of reality. Told with wit and energy, the poignant narrative is rife with unexpected twists and funny dialogue, and Cash’s protagonists show a level of humanity that makes this story a thorough pleasure: the characters of Telly and Clutch are sweetly charming and thoroughly likable, and the secondary cast is equally compelling. At once an exploration of family ties, relationships, love, integrity, second chances, mortality, and redemption, and written with an effortless precision, this book will have readers searching for more of the author’s work.
