An entertaining, fun audiobook where the ghost of a renowned poker player tries to obtain his elusive goal by haunting a newbie player into participating in a high stakes poker tournament. This unusual ghost story has the feel of a poker game, from the eccentric participants, to the mind games and watching the tells; Cash draws you into the world of competitive poker while telling a story that has a message behind it. You can't help but like the quirky characters and quick humour in this story, even though Clutch is self absorbed you still want his ghost to achieve its goal. Telly is an appealing character and his generous, kind personality is a great counterbalance to Clutch's. It was also a nice touch to incorporate the odd minor character that appeared in his other books. The narration was excellent, fitting the various voices and accents well and successfully portraying the tension and excitement of a high stakes game. This is a quick enjoyable story with an underlying point. I received the ebook & audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
