"Adam Lang, one of Britain's longest-serving prime ministers, is embroiled in issues. To add to his problems, his biographer has mysteriously disappeared after writing a badly hacked piece. For a hefty fee, our hero, a ghostwriter, is ready and willing to take over. Soon thefts, murders, and duplicity surround the seemingly meaningless project, and he's haunted by the knowledge that the key to all these is hidden in the beginning of the biography. Roger Rees briskly narrates the political and personal intrigues, imbuing the story with a sense of mystery and preparing us for the final twist. Rees's portrayal of the main character embraces the confusion and horror of all that this spectral writer discovers. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
