Every so often a novelist’s first book makes readers sit up and take notice. Ghost Writer, a compelling and uniquely crafted story, is Rene Gutteridge’s first book, but with its breathless pacing and edge-of-your seat suspense, it serves notice that she is an author to watch.
A thought-provoking whodunit that keeps readers guessing to the final chapter, Ghost Writer offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of book publishing. Jonathan Harper, a world-weary editor of a New York publishing house, finds his world turned on edge when he receives an anonymous manuscript that details his life—both past and present—with alarming accuracy. Can Jonathan discover the identity of the mysterious “ghost writer” before his life, marriage, and career crumbled before his eyes?
A strong spiritual message compliments and energizes its suspense-story trappings and by managing to weave two “manuscripts” into the story, Gutteridge actually tells three stories in one. Dramatic, mysterious, and redemptive, Ghost Writer is an auspicious beginning for a new writer readers will come to look on as one of their favorites.
