The Ghost Writer by John Harwood

A tantalizing tale of suspense and family secrets that weaves Victorian ghost stories into the present where they start to come true Timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mothers drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mothers role in a sinister crime. And as he discovers more of Violas chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his familys mystery or will they bring him the untimely death they seem to foretell? Harwoods astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletons and stories -- can be.
