Fat Chance- AB Morgan

A very different crime read. Ella is in need of a job. Her friend is a private investigator and
suggests she join her however Ella is not really cut out for it. She does have a sixth sense
about people but her technology skills leave something to be desired. Speaking of desired….
one of her first jobs is to infiltrate Buxhams, a private members club where the ladies are
not slim shall we say. She finds a post there and has also done some life modelling recently
which comes in handy when one of the patrons wants to paint her in order to tease his
friend. One of these men is Harry Drysdale- a man we now know has gone missing.
The other is a renowned bariatric surgeon. Konrad Neale is a TV presenter of the type
that does reveals of the criminal kind- finding out what people have been up to that
is the wrong side of the line and possibly the law. This is a lighthearted crime read
with a twist. One to make you smile along the way and not the ordinary crime read
in any manner of speaking as there is no detective as such.
An unusual read and an entertaining one.

Fat Chance book description

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.

Alison Morgan author bio

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.
