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. The ghost soon discovers that his distinguished new client has secrets in his past that are returning to haunt him - secrets with the power to kill.

Robert Harris is once again at his gripping best with the most controversial new thriller of the decade.

"A master of the intelligent thriller... The Ghost is Harris back on sparkling form" (The Times)

"Truly thrilling" (Sunday Times)

"Robert Harris's latest thriller is more than a fun read: it is a super-duper, double fun bag-sized read thanks to his masterful plotting" (Daily Telegraph)

"A cracking good yarn... His writing is taut with wit and cleverness" (Financial Times)

"The Ghost is arguably the finest novel yet to have emerged from the so-called Age of Terror... This is an important book about the major issues of our time" (Mail on Sunday)
