The stunning new novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Fatherland; Enigma; Archangel; Pompeii and Imperium.

“The moment I heard how McAra died I should have walked away. I can see that now. I should have said, ‘Rick, I’m sorry, this isn’t for me, I don’t like the sound of it,’ finished my drink and left. But he was such a good storyteller, Rick — I often thought he should have been the writer and I the agent — that once he’d started talking there was never any question I wouldn’t listen, and by the time he had finished, I was done for.”

After five books set firmly in the past, Robert Harris returns with a contemporary novel that brings the reader face to face with some of the biggest issues of our time — the result is a gripping and genuinely thrilling read.

From the Back Cover:

‘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

‘The Ghost is arguably the finest novel yet to have emerged from the so-called Age of Terror’ Mail on Sunday

‘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
