Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dont miss the major motion picture staring Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan. An eerily timely thriller of power, politics, corruption, and murder from bestselling author Robert Harris.

“The moment I heard how McAra died, I should have walked away. I can see that now. . . .”

The role of a ghostwriter is to make his client look good, not to uncover the truth. But what happens when the client is a major political figure, and the truth could change the course of history? Adam Lang, the controversial former prime minister of Britain, is writing his memoirs. But his first ghostwriter dies under shocking circumstances, and his replacement—whose experience lies in portraying aging rock stars and film idols—knows little about Langs inner circle. Flown to join Lang in a secure house on the remote shores of Marthas Vineyard in the depths of winter, cut off from everyone and everything he knows, he comes to realize he should never have taken the job.

Its not just his predecessors mysterious death that haunts him, but Adam Lang himself. Deep in Langs past are buried shocking secrets . . . secrets with the power to alter world politics . . . secrets with the power to kill.
