Ghostwriter by Travis Thrasher

Ghostwriter

When a writer's haunting novels suddenly intersect with real life, he faces terror unlike anything he ever imagined.

For years Dennis Shore has thrilled readers with his spooky bestselling novels. Now a widower, Dennis is finally alone in his house, his daughter attending college out of state. When he's stricken by a paralyzing case of writer's block and a looming deadline, Dennis becomes desperate. Against better judgment, he claims someone else's writing as his own, accepting undeserved accolades for the stolen work. He thinks he's gotten away with it . . . until he's greeted by a young man named Cillian Reed--the true author of the stolen manuscript.

What begins as a minor case of harassment quickly spirals out of control. As Cillian's threats escalate, Dennis finds himself on the brink of losing his career, his sanity, and even his life. The horror he's spent years writing about has arrived on his doorstep, and Dennis has nowhere to run.

“This scary page-turner by Thrasher (Isolation) features a Stephen King–like author of bestselling horror novels who, paralyzed by writer's block and hard hit by the recent death of his wife, passes off writing sent by a fan as his own. Said fan gets upset, and all hell breaks loose. There's a deep love story between the author character and his late wife interleaved with lots of cinematically creepy scenes played out at ordinary places in upscale suburbia . . . An emotional wallop of a book. Thrasher just keeps getting better.”—Publishers Weekly

“Travis Thrasher only continues to astonish me with not only the quality of his writing, but his ability to tell powerful stories. It’s rare to find an author who can take us to places we don’t want to go in order to bring us to a place we long to be. Ghostwriter is the kind of gem that comes along far too seldom; displaying the kind of writing that deserves to be devoured by the masses.”—The Christian Manifesto

“Thrasher’s creepy tale will keep readers up late into the night. The timeline is occasionally confusing, but that actually adds to the suspense rather than detracting from it. Not a book for the easily spooked, it’s great for those who enjoy a good ghost story with a subtle spiritual message.”—Romantic Times

“With Ghostwriter, Thrasher establishes himself as an author fully capable of leading his readers through an intensely-emotional and spiritually-provocative journey all while disguising it as a suspense novel.”—CBA Retailers & Resources
