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.
