Book Description

1 Jan 2010
This book is for all who love blackjack, for all who want to know how card-counting actually works and for all who want to be cured of gambling addiction. Glamour and despair, both sides of the gambling world are here. Comedy Fiction The local health & Safety zealots have torpedoed that hitherto unsinkable institution, The Lifeboat Club. By bottom-of-the-pack dealing, the council intends to purchase the club for a few chips and replace it with a government-approved supercasino. Can Jady with his army of losers - winos, heads and gamblers - inspire the good citizens of Spawater to turn tables on the council and come up trumps? Not if Inspector Brewe can mark his cards.

More About the Author

I am not a Roman, though I have met a few, and was not born in Spawater.
I discovered the ancient town by accident after falling asleep on a train from Paddington.
Noting how people were paid in cash for painting themselves silver and standing stock-still in the town centre, I decided
that such a career in Spawater amongst the Romans was far more interesting than my previous life as an information technology instructor.
Accordingly I joined the Spawater Gladiators' supporters club, bought a
toga and told the boss what he could do with his IT job.
And I've been a loyal Spawaterian ever since. Why not join me!
Interests:
Supporting the lions. Chariot racing. Amphitheatre. Hiding from Boudica. Laughing at barbarians. sailing on aqueducts.

Over two thousand years ago the Romans came, saw and conquered Britain.
They stayed for a few hundred years, give or take, until rising Villa
prices, the ferociousness of the local lions and the quality of home brewed
wine convinced them to take all roads back to Rome.
No Romans remained. Britain, both sides of Hadrian's Wall, became a
Roman-free zone.
Except....
There was one little town where the Roman bugle-song anthem of retreat,
'Legitus Quickitus', was not heard. One town where the Romans and the
locals, ears full of soap, were so busy splashing around together they
missed the thunder of the departing last night chariots of fire. And as
there were no cabs due for another 15 hundred years - and that's if you
believe the cab office - the town's Romans decided to stay.
The town grew, thriving on the naturally occurring spa waters, nurtured by
the river Fons and hardened by the combination of original Brits and Roman
bath lovers. The last bastion of the Roman Empire, it is now a mighty town
indeed.
The town's name? Spawater, home of the legendary Spawater Baths.

The Spawater Chronicles are the tales of its citizens, and how they take on
the world and win.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filling the bathroom slippers of the great Douglas Adams.
Just finished book three, CASINO. Easily the best researched and engaging of the Spawater series. Jady and the crew have grown up to the realities of the world but not let realities corrode their plans and ideals. Barry Tighe is shaping up to fill the bathroom slippers of the great Douglas Adams. Enjoy :-) --Marti Atkins. 30 Mar 2008 - Amazon UK

5.0 out of 5 stars casino is the BEST!!!
This is a great book that is certain fun for anyone who reads it! With multidimensional views, quirky characters, great analagies, and side splitting quotes, this book is guaranteed to make you laugh. I recommend reading all three books in order, to understand the characters better. The characters are like everyone you'll ever know, but put into words better than real life! They grow on you like old friends, with real personalities and minds of their own. the author weaves a hilarious story of Jady, who must have WAY to much time on his hands, and how he outwitts the council, Deludo, and social services... Look out Spawater HERE COMES JADY!!!:)
