A great story - A damn good read July 18 2008
By JT - Published on
Format: Paperback
When you read the accolades on the back page of any novel they're going to be complimentary. When you read the synopsis of the story contained within the outer sleeve, it'll sound interesting and worth a read. In a lot of cases, the resultant purchase of the book turns out to be a disappointment and you feel you've wasted both money and time on that book.

Not so in the case of Ghostheart. The accolades and synopsis are well desverved and accurate. This is a really great storyline which has a few catch-you-out moments just to keep you guessing who is really who that little bit longer.

As with other Ellory books that I've read, the fleshed out characters become so real that you get involved in their "lives" and just want to keep reading their story till you've got right to the last page.

This is my third RJ Ellory novel and I am left wanting to read the remaining books in his catalogue. His stories are just so interesting, well paced and filled with such believable characters that you can become lost in the fantasy american lives he's describing.

A great story and a damn good read.

Full Of Vengeance and Betrayal Aug. 3 2008
By Big Bertha - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Loved it! This is the first book I read by this author and from start to finish I was enthralled.

Annie O'Neill is a single person who owns a used bookstore in New York City. Her father died when she was young and her mother when she was 17. Her life is pretty uneventful until an elderly man, Robert Franklin Forrester, appears at the store with a chapter from a manuscript for her along with letters from her father to her mother that her mother had never received.

The main book is set in the present with another storyline running alongside spanning the years from Auschwitz to America in the sixties. The past and the present are both equally gripping.

A book full of vengence and betrayal - if you haven't read it yet, believe me it's worth reading!

Two Stories, One Heart Nov. 17 2010
By PaleolithNick - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What is the nature of loneliness? What is the nature of nostalgia? Faith and trust?

How about vengeance?

Ghostheart explores this questions through rich, believable characters in a story of slow-building psychological suspense unlike many you'll read. At the center of the story is Annie O'Neill's quest to understand her father, her own human condition, and a mysterious book that links her lonely present to her father's shadowy past. Conveyed through a primary narrative and the reproduced text of the book, Annie's quest takes her through love, lust, danger, and turmoil.

As always, RJ Ellory captures voice and heart like few crime writers. The characters will move into the corners of your mind, and they will not move out. This is a thriller with a literary touch and a wonderful human spirit.

An Amazing Book! April 5 2011
By Holly Pop - Published on
Format: Paperback
I thought the character Annie in this book was really believeable, the plot was excellent and I couldn't put the book down. I had to konw what happened to the character Annie as I was desperate for her to have a happy ending. I wont say what happens so as not to spoil the book for others but the ending was very satisfying. This isn't the first R.J. Ellory book that I have read and all have been brilliant. I intend to read all of his books. Great stories by a great writer.
