Holly enjoys her days waitressing and managing the front of house in her mum's restaurant, The Workhouse. She is a beautiful and popular teen living an idyllic life with a handsome footballer for a boyfriend. The restaurant is always busy and she enjoys chatting to the customers, although she may wish she had not shown interest in a weary, depressed looking man sitting alone at the bar one evening. A robbery at the local bank appears to have gone horribly wrong with car chases through country lanes and the getaway driver getting more than he bargained for. If only Holly knew that there was a chance the two things were linked and that life was going to become very frightening in a hurry. Can her Grandfather, the local Chief Inspector get to the bottom of things? Or will he rely on her dashing boyfriend, Samuel, for his brawn and brains to save the day?

The opening chapter of "The Workhouse Mysteries - The Tale of The Depressed Man" was very entertaining and a brilliant way to start the book. Straight into a bank robbery that goes wrong and a high speed car chase where the getaway driver gets more than he bargained for. This book had a really interesting storyline that used the backdrop of a restaurant as the location for the story and as a very unusual premise this really works. Holly loves waitressing in and managing her mother's restaurant 'The Workhouse'. She lives an idyllic life with her handsome footballer boyfriend Sam. Enjoying chatting with the customers, Holly one evening encounters a depressed looking man sitting at the bar alone. However, she is not to know that a recent bank robbery that went terribly wrong and a high speed car chase is connected to this depressed man. Will she live to regret getting involved with this mysterious man? Can her grandfather, the local Chief Inspector get to the bottom of things or will it be her dashing boyfriend who saves the day?? There's some really strong characters in the story, I particularly liked teenage Holly and her footballer boyfriend. I was kept entertained from start to finish - with a race against time to save a hostage situation, this was a clean, easy to follow plot that I'm sure crime readers young and old will enjoy. Written by Mason Bushell, I look forward to the next book in the series.
