How deep would you dig to keep your secret buried? Dorian Cook is a jaded film critic, haunted by a horrific prank that defined his impoverished childhood. When an old acquaintance resurfaces, seeking revenge, Cook finds himself the reluctant hero of a real-life movie, where he’s forced to protect his family and fight for his life. The action cuts between Cook’s working life in contemporary London and his primary school days in 1970’s industrial England, where a dire decision, taken on the hottest day of the year in the summer of ‘76, changes his life forever. In the present day, as Cook’s public and private worlds collapse around him, he struggles to shut away the shame of the past. Pursued by a deadly aggressor, he must finally step out of the shadows and lay his demons to rest. Love and hate. Retribution and redemption. Death and rebirth. The Ghost is a chilling, compulsive thriller which shows how an ordinary man can be driven to do extraordinary things.
