Hand Over Fist is the first book in the Out of Hand series.
This is a British based thriller that will have you riveted Martin Russell has had it rough with his ex-wife leaving him broke and emotional disaster. He meet up with an old friend of his (Hannah) gradually he starts to get his life back on track. Then Hannah goes missing, in steps Bobby who used to be a copper but is now a PI who also with drunks and druggies in a reading group. This is where he meets dodgy characters one of them being Zach who’s a drug dealer.
As you read the book you get an insight into all the various characters in the book and how their lives link together with all the twists and turns.
To start with, the story jumps around introducing the various characters and their backgrounds. They're an interesting and diverse set of individuals. This group are apparently totally unrelated people but as the book goes on, their stories all start to mix and intertwine together.
I really felt for Martin in his predicament; taken to the cleaners by his ex-wife, left to rent a dingy flat in an undesirable part of town. But enter Hannah, an old friend wanting to help him out. I was a little suspicious of Hannah - in this day and age it's rare (but not unheard of) that someone is super nice and helps you out particularly to the financial tune Hannah helps Martin for no reason. But maybe that's my cynical side showing its face.
And there is Bobby, a disgraced copper running a community book club on a Friday night. What did he do to get unceremoniously thrown out of the police force? Then on the wrong side of the law is Zach, a young man dealing drugs and the elusive Chemist who is deep the dark side of supply and demand. Finally there is John Staples, former footballer forced into early retirement but becomes a successful businessman.
When the author contacted me on Twitter asking if I'd like to read his book, I was in two minds about saying yes. I need more books to read like a hole in the head but something about the synopsis of Hand Over Fist appealed to me. I'm glad I did say yes; it's a enthralling ride through this eclectic group's lives.
A big thank you to Michael Ross for sending me an e-copy of Hand Over Fist in return for my unbiased review.
Strong characters and a engaging story - would highly recommend
