"Cash proves to be highly capable of juxtaposing the absurd and the mundane, creating a thoroughly enjoyable ghost story along the lines of The Canterville Ghost (1891) and Topper (1926)...Bet on this funny, well-written tale of second chances." - Kirkus Review
"...quick, quirky, at times slapstick comedy of ghostly hauntings, human greed...aspiring love, easy-come-easy-go abandon, a suitably modern morality play..." - Michael Collings, Collingnotes

As for the plot, I don't think that his ghost idea is unique. We have seen it all before. Somebody dies, they have unfinished business on earth, they can't let go, stick around, find suitable human candidate to complete their job. I thought that Clutch the ghost was obnoxious and self-absorbed, and could totally relate to his mean grandfather.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was perfect for my tired brain after the work day. It's sweet and relaxing. Knowing from the first pages that it's going to be a happy-end kind of book made me calm and relaxed. It was also interesting to learn a few things about the game of poker. I have never played it.
I received a hard copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. The package it came with was amazing. I felt like it was a Christmas present from someone. I got a deck of playing cards, Pokergeist sticky notes, poker chip key chain, and a bonus book! Although Monsterland doesn't sound like it's going to be as light-hearted, I look forward to reading it too :)
Telly Martin has absolutely no clue what to do next in his life. After losing his job as an IT computer specialist for a casino - for the first time ever - Telly finds himself at a complete loss. Determined to find a way to become a professional poker player - even though he is turning out to be supremely unlucky as a gambler - Telly makes an impossible wish over a casino fountain in Las Vegas: and suddenly finds himself being mentored by a world-famous poker champion. The only catch...Telly's mentor is none other than the late and very-much-lamented Clutch Henderson.
Together, this unlikely pair of card-sharps must now navigate their way through the seedy gambling underbelly of Las Vegas. However Telly, the hapless poker protégé - and Clutch, the vaunted 'King of Poker' - will first have to learn to trust each other if they are to have any chance at all of winning an elusive spot in the 'International Series of Poker'. Meanwhile, they must find a way to repair their shattered personal relationships and find redemption - both in this life as well as in the hereafter.
First of all, let me say that although I may have classified this book as horror - the horror is more comedic rather than thrilling. I actually had the pleasure of reading another of Michael Phillip Cash's books - 'Schism: The Battle For Darracia' back in June of 2014. This book was just as pleasurable for me to read; in my opinion, the author has created engaging and believable characters and an intriguingly well-developed plot. I'm also delighted to say that Mr. Cash has somehow managed to achieve a near impossibility with me: I'm actually beginning to appreciate poker!
To be perfectly honest, I've never paid that much attention to poker. Having never actually played the game myself, I guess that I just couldn't really understand the draw of it as a profession. Having said that, I would certainly give this book an A!
