Assassinations, a love story, a kidnapping, and many twists and turns characterizes this riveting novel of historical fiction, circa 1958, thirteen years post World War II.
Events are uncovered where The Ghost, a powerful Vatican Bishop, is sending assassins to retrieve a secret tailpiece – a hidden extension of the 1942 Wannsee Conference Papers that underpinned the Holocaust against Jews. Only two copies of this tailpiece remain where names of thousands of high level Nazis such as Eichmann and Mengele are listed along with their future destinations – should Germany lose the war.
At the same time, New York City detectives working with British M16 secret service, and Israeli Mossad agents, get Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal and his group, (including an Israeli sanctioned killer) involved in order to find and send the crucial coded microfilm to England’s renowned decryption center. Now, in 1958, these Jewish Nazi hunters will not forgive and not forget.
This story is newsworthy testimony regarding the villains who are actual historical figures and are named. Fitting it all together (as in the screenplay based on the story titled: “We Will Find You,”) is the avenging drama of the novel.

The Ghost is the first book I have read by Henry Kellerman. It begins in 1958 and involves events that happened during and after World War II. The Ghost refers to a dominant bishop from the Vatican. The story is quite a complex one with the ghost ordering assassins, post Holocaust, Nazi hunters, kidnappings, drama, suspense, and mystery. Detectives and secret agents from all over the world are trying to figure out what is going on.
The Ghost is one of those books that keeps a reader engaged and makes them stay on the edge of their seat throughout while reading. I found the plot to be fast paced and a page turner. I did find it a little difficult to follow at times, but it quickly made sense to me and I caught as to what was going on. It is not a book that can be easily put down. I just had to find out what was going to happen next.
I thought The Ghost to be well written. Mr. Kellerman is obviously a talented writer and a natural storyteller. I would love to read other fictional works by him in the future. I found his writing to be quite unique and intriguing.
I am giving The Ghost four and a half stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy historical fiction that is suspense filled, adventurous, action packed, and has a fast paced twist.
The Ghost is most definitely not a book to be missed. It is a must read.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
