A successful ghost-writer is suddenly asked to complete the ex-British Prime Minister's memoirs. Against his better judgement he says yes, and finds himself in Martha's Vineyard in the winter, among a group of highly stressed people (the ex-PM, his wife, a PA, some secretaries, the security team) who are having to deal with fall-out from the collusion with the US in the "War on Terror" and torture of prisoners.

Our ghost-writer notices a few strange things, but bumbles along notwithstanding, until he finds himself right in the midst of intrigue and danger.

This book is a fun read. It's fast-paced and entertaining. I enjoy the author's turns of phrase and I really enjoyed the insight into ghost-writing.
