With a family like this, who wouldn’t need absinthe?

Fionnuala Flood, mother of seven unruly thugs, takes stock of her life as her 45th birthday approaches, and it couldn’t be more of a misery. She’s been fired from the corner shop for stealing, her two oldest sons are in prison, her husband’s hands are fondling more than frozen fish at the packing plant, and her lesbian daughter has just published a book exposing the family’s attempts to get their claws into Auntie Ursula Barnett’s lottery winnings the year before. Daughter Dymphna, unwed mother, has just been kicked out of her boyfriend’s house, adding two more mouths to feed.

Desperate to raise money to travel to Malta for the launch party and wreak havoc, Fionnuala puts into motion a get-rich-quick scheme that preys on the weaknesses of others and will hopefully add a bit of luxury to her empty coal bin of a life. The scam, however, unleashes dark secrets that bring Ursula back to town for a final showdown. Hand In The Till is a darkly comic look at revenge, retribution and, perhaps, reconcilliation. With a shot of absinthe.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

This book is great fun. I can hardly wait for the promised next installment of this brilliant series. I heartily recommend Gerald Hansen’s books to anyone who enjoys irish writing and black comedy and can handle the truth.


Gerald Hansen hits the jackpot again with another outstanding piece of black comedy genius, delivered in his own unique style. Well done, Gerald. Can’t wait for Book Three. A must read.


‘Hand in the Till’ is an excellent follow-up to ‘Embarrassment to Riches’ where Gerald Hansen brings us further into the lives of the Flood family. The shenanigans of Hansen’s characters keep you wanting more. This book is witty, comical, and entertaining all the way. Like most of the readers, I’m looking forward to the follow-up and hoping that Fionnuala may finally perform a good deed.
