I don't usually read Reader's Digest Condensed versions of stories, but this one caught my attention and once caught, I looked for a copy of the book. Not finding one, I resorted to the condensed version. That's an indication of how drawn in I was to the story. Layer upon layer upon layer is carefully revealed, drawing the reader deeper into the story. Wonderfully suspenseful and very well-written. The Ghost-writer steps into the middle of a mystery to write a memoir for a politician and finds himself with much more than appears on the surface. It will keep you guessing until the very end. I'll be looking for more by this author and definitely recommend this book.
