Fat Chance book description
Available from AMAZON
A missing barrister, a severed thumb and fat chance of finding out the truth.
Ella Fitzwilliam’s world is about to spiral out of control. She’s not cut out to be a private investigator. With little or no aptitude for the job, she’s been sent undercover to expose the hidden lives of two men who meet nearly every week at Buxham’s – a private members’ club where portions are large and secrets are held in strictest confidence.
One of those men is Harry Drysdale, a defence barrister, and the other is Marcus Carver, an eminent surgeon with a tarnished past and much to lose. Ella knows he has unhealthy appetites, she’s sure he’s feeding his perverted habits and putting his female patients at risk but she has to prove it.
When Harry Drysdale goes missing, Konrad Neale TV journalist tries to reveal the truth behind the lies, but some of the secrets start to reveal themselves… and they are big.
This is a stand-alone book in the Crime Fiction genre. If you have never read anything by AB Morgan you don’t know what you are missing. Her books always have a humorous element somewhere that has you laughing while still not detracting from the main theme of crime.
Ella is always up for a laugh even a mundane task like bingo calling has everyone laughing but the manager is not impressed and so endeth another job. However, among the audience is someone from her past and with her another opportunity presents itself.
Tasked with going under cover as an investigator is bound to be unusual given what we already know about the hillarious Ella and I was not disappointed.
This is a brilliant read. You need to think outside the box but the characters are unusual but realistic as we join Ella and Val on her journey to reveal a perverted man who has a reputation as a Bariatric Surgeon but is using his position to satisfy his urges.
Fun and seriousness take their turns on this roller coaster ride of a read with many twists and turns all the way to the end.
Alison Morgan lives in rural Bedfordshire, UK, with her engineer husband and bonkers dog. Life is never boring and they are usually planning the next adventure. Alison spent several decades working on the front line of mental health services as a specialist nurse and latterly as manager of an early intervention service for first episode psychosis. However, when a heart problem brought her career to a juddering halt, she had to find a way of managing her own sanity, so she sat down to write some useful clinical guidelines for student nurses. Instead, a story that had been lurking in her mind came spewing forth onto the pages of what became her first novel. Since then she has been unable to stem the flow of ideas and writes full-time from a luxurious shack at the top of the garden. Alison writes under the name A B Morgan and. within her storylines, she continues to make good use of her years of experience in mental health services, where the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
