Poor Hands by Oliver Tidy

It feels like i’ve been waiting a long time for the third instalment in the Booker and Cash Series by Oliver Tidy. This is his newest release with Bloodhound books, it follows the lives of Booker and Cash a secondhand bookstore/cafe owner and private detective respectively.

the story:

In a big old building on the south coast of Kent, David Booker runs a book-themed coffee shop and Jo Cash operates a private investigation business. They live there, too. But not like that.

Jo needs help with tracing a mystery client’s living relatives. David needs help with his staffing problems.  Will they both get what they are looking for?

Sometimes two heads are better than one. Sometimes a poor hand is better than none. But not always…

My thoughts:

I have always been a fan of this series and this is a good addition to the trilogy. The book could be read as a standalone but if you have not read booker and cash before you would be better starting at the beginning. It follows to semi intertwining stories of a young girl in trouble and a family history conundrum. Once again the quality of writing, strength of characters and the authors clear knowledge of romney marsh shine through. I loved the clues set in cash’s investigation and found this a real sleep stealer of a novel. It was hard to put down and full of Oliver’s trademark humour. A real 5* read for me
