Harris at the top of his game,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ghost (Kindle Edition)
This book tells the story of a ghost writer hired to write the autobiography of a former prime minister of the UK. The main criteria for electing this particular writer seem to be that (a) he can write and (b) he knows nothing about politics. However, without spoiling the plot, he finds out far more than he should, and the upshot is a nail biting thriller that I found it very hard to put down.
Robert Harris writes beautifully and develops the main characters very convincingly. This is a tremendous conspiracy theory novel, up there with the likes of the excellent The Dying Light by Henry Porter. Such theories are only interesting if the author can make them convincing, and Harris really succeeds. I also love the quality of his writing. Thoroughly recommended.
