Overview

Alice, Twila, Granny, Jack, Trucker and Miss Molly are at it again, this time in a haunted hotel in Red Dollar, New Mexico. Shades of the Wild West, the ghosts are carrying six-shooters! The villain is armed with Black Magic, and there's no escape for anyone during the ice storm.
Alice keeps telling herself this is Twila's gig, and she's only here to back up her aunt and mentor as they discipline some rowdy ghosts. But she and Granny and the pets are on their own when Twila's plane gets delayed. It's not the ghosts she's worried about, though. It's when she discovers the newly-dead woman in the hotel, and realizes someone has stolen the poor woman's hands, that she starts having misgiving. Here she is again, smack dab in the middle of another murder investigation, when she only signed on for free room and board as a reward for making a few disruptive ghosts obey the rules of ghostly behavior.
Twila rides in to do her share about the same time as Jack, Alice's ex. Even in the huge hotel, the quarters are too close for Alice to avoid remembering how she and Jack might be heading toward a friends-with-benefits twist to their divorced state. The villains are forced to step up their pace, though, with a homicide detective on the premises and the handless ghost who might expose their dastardly plans.

Editorial Reviews

Stir, Laugh, Repeat Blog - Martha Cheves
Dead Man Hand is a book I couldn’t put down. The more I read and the closer I got to the end, the more I wanted it to just keep going. I didn’t want it to end. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I must go back and read Dead Man Talking and Dead Man Haunt, the first and second books within this set. Author T. M. Simmons keeps you going with her style of writing. Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish
On Line - Alice Borchart
"[Dead Man Talking is] [G]risly fun! T. M. Simmons is the finest, funniest writer about Texas I've ever read."

Meet the Author

T. M. Simmons was dragged down the ghost hunting trail many years ago, due to her avid curiosity and an aunt, Belle Brown, who had been dealing with the paranormal for more years than that. They both traveled to numerous haunted locations and succeeded in scaring themselves silly … uh … sillier and enjoying every bit of it. As a writer, some of the locations sparked entire books in Simmons' mind.
Dead Man Hand is the third book in the Dead Man Mystery Series, which grew out of those travels. Although the visit you will read about in the lead-in story in her Ghost Hunting Diary Volume IV, "St. James Jeepers Creepers," started the glimmer of the idea for Dead Man Hand, this book is entirely fictional. It is drawn from lore and legend, but the end result is totally from the depths of Simmons' ultra-active imagination. Some call it writer talent, which she prefers.
Simmons is extremely willing to discuss her experiences with anyone she can corner. She hopes you enjoy Dead Man Hand so much you want to read more of her work. In this on-line world, it's easy to find books by Simmons. To keep up with her, she has:
