Britain's former prime minister is holed up in a remote, ocean-front house in America, struggling to finish his memoirs, when his long-term assistant drowns.
A professional ghostwriter is sent out to rescue the project - a man more used to working with fading rock stars and minor celebrities than ex-world leaders.
The ghost soon discovers that his distinguished new client has secrets in his past that are returning to haunt him - secrets with the power to kill.
Robert Harris is once again at his gripping best with the most controversial new thriller of the decade.
