Claire’s Rating: 3.5-4 /5
Hand over fist is a British crime thriller set around Martin Russell who’s down on his luck after his wife left and wiped him out financially and mentally in the divorce proceedings. But a couple of old friends are willing to help get him back on his feet, leading to an unexpected turn of events.
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.
