The Ghost Writer
By John Harwood
Narrated by Simon Vance / 10 hours 27 minutes
In this tantalizing tale of Victorian ghost stories and family secrets, timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mother's drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mother's role in a sinister crime. As he discovers more of Viola's chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his family's mystery-or will they bring about his untimely death, as they seem to foretell?Harwood's astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletons-and stories-can be.
