Britain's former prime minister is holed up in a remote, ocean-front house in America, struggling to finish his memoirs, when his long-term assistant drowns. A professional ghostwriter is sent out to rescue the project - a man more used to working with fading rock stars and minor celebrities than ex-world leaders.

 No surprise this book is up for an award

Or so I heard.

It's got everything going for it though, it's very well written for one thing and the characters have depth to them, that's not to say you instantly fall in love with the lead, it took a while for him to grow on me but that helps you get involved with the story he is telling you.
There's a lot going on and you don't see the big picture right up to then end. So many books try to have a twist in the tale that you either see coming or just dont work, but not so here.

Despite not being my usual genre (I prefer horror/chiller or something with cars in it) I really couldn't put this down, it has to be one of the best books I've read this year.

Would I recomend this book to a friend? absolutley. Am I glad I bought it? definitley

 An easy read, but a weak plot!

Top 100 Books Reviewer

Having read a few reviews about this book it is clear that people either love it or hate it. I have to say that I sit between the lovers and the haters with this book.

Having just finished Engima and been hugely disappointed I was a bit pensive about picking up this book. However, once I got going I found that I was enjoying it. The characters have a lot more depth to them than in Enigma and the pace, though mostly set around Martha's Vinyard in America, is quite quick.

So, I enjoyed the book, but I only give it three stars because of the plot. Whilst Fatherland and Engima were entirely believeable plots, owing to the level of research involved, The Ghost has a simply ridiculous plot about the CIA and the British Government and war crimes.

However, even though this book does have a ridiculous plot, I did enjoy it. It didn't really take much concentration to keep up with the plot and the characters have a bit of an edge to them that keeps you intersted as well.

Overall then, a decent read if you take the plot with a large pinch of salt.
