Harris is a brilliant thriller writer and the topicality of this book makes for an even better thriller full of twists turns and a real feeling of being in the inner circles of government.

If you like Robert Harris you might also like to read books by Tom Bradby, C. J. Sansom and Guy Saville.

Synopsis

The Ghost by Robert Harris

The Ghost has now been made into a film due for release 16 April 2010.

‘The moment I heard how McAra died I should have walked away. I can see that now…’

The narrator of Robert Harris’s gripping new novel is a professional ghostwriter – cynical, mercenary, and with a nice line in deadpan humour. Accustomed to working with fading rock stars and minor celebrities, he jumps at the chance to ghost the memoirs of Britain’s former prime minister, especially as it means flying to the American resort of Martha’s Vineyard in the middle of winter and finishing the book in the seclusion of a luxurious house.

But it doesn’t take him long to realise he has made a terrible mistake. His predecessor on the project died in circumstances that were distinctly suspicious, and the ex-prime minister turns out to be a man with secrets in his past that are returning to haunt him – secrets with the power to kill.

A master of the intelligent thriller…The Ghost is Harris back on sparkling form’ The Times

Harris has written a remarkable thriller… He knows how to tell a story’ Sunday Telegraph
