The Ghost by Robert Harris

The Ghost is a fine example of a timely political thriller. Harris writes of mystery, intrigue, and the type of political scandal that will have the reader second guessing the meaning behind each character's words as you try to separate the truth from the lies and cover up stories. The ghostwriter, played by Ewan McGregor in the 2010 movie The Ghost Writer, is hired to ghost write the memoirs of the former prime minister Adam Lang played by Pierce Brosnan in the movie. The ghostwriter finds himself secluded in a remote compound in Martha's Vineyard having to rewrite the recently deceased previous ghostwriter's work for an absurd amount of money in an equally absurd short period of time. As the ghostwriter delves deeper into his predecessor's manuscript and as he becomes better acquainted with former PM Adam Lang, his wife Ruth, and his staff, the ghostwriter wonders really how involved was Lang in the War on Terror and the CIA. Both the book The Ghost and the movie The Ghost Writer tell an amazing tale which has distinctly different conclusions. I strongly advise you to check out the book and the movie yourself.
