Review of ‘Keep the Ghost’

Posted on Updated on

Have you ever read a book that you started thinking it was one thing only to get halfway through and realize that you’re reading something else entirely—but, by that time, you’re so caught up in the story you don’t care? That’s the way you’re likely to view reading Keep the Ghost by Scott Kelly.

When Kayla McPherson decides to fake her suicide and talks Irish exchange student Sean Reilly into helping her, he reluctantly goes along. When her body is found with its throat slashed, Sean is arrested for the murder. But, he’s innocent. Problem: he has no way to prove it. The mysterious man, Jack, who was supposed to be helping Kayla, doesn’t exist. Then an even more mysterious woman, Morgan, shows up and bails Sean out of jail and takes him on the wildest ride of his life.

Kelly takes the reader on a wild ride with this story as well as Sean gets deeper and deeper into a scam that has unfortunately turned murderous. Morgan introduces him to Mr. Banks, the brains behind the operation, but has to try and stay one step ahead of her abusive husband who now knows she’s alive. She also has to teach Sean how to avoid the police—a task made more difficult by Jack’s betrayal.

Curious? You should be by now. A fast-paced story that will grab you by the throat and not let go until it reaches a surprising end.

I give it four stars.

    Sounds like quite a trippy book. I am curious. Was the ending good? If you thought the story was going somewhere else to start with?

      In the end, I thought it was a very good book. The ending surprised me, but the author did a fairly good job of tying up loose ends.
