When popular suspense writer Dennis Shore is stricken by a paralyzing case of writer's block and a looming deadline, he claims someone else's writing as his own, and soon becomes tormented by a man who knows his secret.Publishers Description
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.

|Good Read May 27, 2010|
|It wasn't very scary to me; I've read much more suspenseful thrillers, but it was still intriguing and a good read with a message at the end!|
|Amazed Apr 12, 2010|
|I normally read books that are what people would say are 'chick' books, but I decided for a change. I picked up Ghostwriters and was immediately drawn into the story. Thrasher's adjectives and the way he writes made me feel apart of the story instead of just looking in. This book is an intense, seat gripping story and I couldn't set it down! The charaters were so real and vivid; I could picture every scene, it was incredible! This is the first book I read by Thrasher and won't be the last! I don't care what kind of book you read give this a try, you won't regret it!|
|First Rate Horror Apr 7, 2010|
|Dennis Shore is a bestselling horror writer and the world is waiting for his next book. So is he. He's pacing through an old Victorian house, suffering from writer's block, and grieving over the loss of his wife. Nothing is working--not his writing, not his relationship with his daughter, not his faith (or lack of), and to top it all of, disturbing scenes from his books seem to be coming back to haunt him.|
I sat down with Ghostwriter one evening just to see what it was like. When I looked up, I'd read nearly the first 100 pages. I was immediately sucked into the story. Being a writer myself, I was fascinated by this story of a bestselling novelist struggling with the craft and putting on the facade of a big-shot author who has it all together. It doesn't take long to reach the first bizarre twist in the story, and when it hits, there's no putting this thing down.
Again, Thrasher demonstrates his knack for a fast-paced thriller laced with horror and hints of redemption. He doesn't waste any time with fluffy prose, but throws the reader straight into the action of every scene. I liked Ghostwriter better than Isolation, and this time I didn't see the big twist coming. And what a twist it is!
Scary, thrilling, just plain good reading, this is some of the most enjoyment I've had with a novel in quite a while.
|great suspense novel!!! Apr 6, 2010|
|This novel is a great suspense thriller! Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I just had to keep reading. It got my attention right away and kept it with its mystery! Its a great read for those who like puzzingly mysteries of the supernatural!|
|Great writing...a little gory for me Feb 12, 2010|
|I like Travis Thrasher. I got one of his books from the library a while back (Admission) and after finishing it, pulled all the titles we had at the bookstore into my hold pile. This is the second book I've read by him. It was entertaining, but not my favorite. I like suspense and mystery, but horror is really not my thing. Thrasher spins a good tale; he is definitely a skillful writer. Ghostwriter was scary, but a little too dark and gory for my personal taste.|
Bestselling author Dennis Shore loses his wife and finds he cannot write anymore. He winds up selling a stolen manuscript, later that choice haunts him, literally. Cillian Reed, the author of the manuscript confronts Dennis and begins to stalk him. Throughout Dennis is searching for hope. I did not find a strong message of Christ, but rather images of heaven and his dead wife giving him that hope.
I have not given up on Thrasher, as even in this novel, he proved he is a talented writer. I think I will stay away from any classified as horror for now. I'm not completely convinced that there is such a thing as "Christian horror," if you can suggest a book that would prove me wrong...Please do.
