A Ghost at the Door (Harry Jones 6) – Michael Dobbs

‘Tell me about your father.’

Five short, razor-edged words that rip the world of Harry Jones to pieces.  He barely knew his father Johnnie and hated what little he did know, yet no man is able to escape the shadows of the past.

Harry has already lost almost everything – his seat in parliament, his reputation, his fortune.  There is little left apart from his love for the headstrong Jemma, and now he must risk losing her and even his own life to uncover the truth about his dead father.

What starts as a gentle enquiry uncovers a trail of murder and guilt-ridden love that dates back to Johnnie’s student days.  Harry’s search leads from a burning house in Bermuda to a graveyard in Greece, from the croquet lawns of his father’s Oxford college to the altar of one of Wren’s finest London churches.  At every turn Harry discovers that the childhood world he thought he knew, was false, along with almost everyone in it.  Only when he confronts his own death does he realize that all along he’s been used as a pawn in a far larger game.

Dobbs was clearly put on this Earth to write thrillers of the most shamelessly page-turning quality.
