Synopsis – Agatha Witchley used to be a spy in the Cold War, but now she’s locked up in the UK’s premier maximum-security mental institution. She believes that the ghosts of the celebrity dead visit her padded cell and whisper the world’s secrets in her ears. Which is a big problem for the British
government, because she’s the only one who can help them when an American billionaire is murdered in London in one of the strangest killings yet.

The Home Secretary needs the case locked down and solved before the entrepreneur’s death becomes public knowledge and economic chaos ensures.

The woman he has in mind for the job might be paranoid, she might be lethal, she might half-insane and drawing a pension, but it’s amazing how you can forgive that in a genius when it’s a genius’s help you need.

Yes, the security forces need Agatha Witchley again. It’s just the ghosts of Churchill, Elvis and
Groucho Marx they could do without.

My Thoughts – I downloaded this book when i first had my kindle as the synopsis sounded quite good. Spying, ghosts, cold war, famous peoples ghosts whats not to love?

This book is about Agatha Witchley, an elderly lady who can see the ghosts of famous people awho is recruited to try and help to solve the particually strange murder of a buisnessman. However, this is really all i can tell you about the book. It seemed to have two very different plot lines to it, the murder and that part and the ghost part. They didnt really seem to interact with each other at all and i couldnt really understand or follow what was going on.

This is the first book in a series of books and maybe this is why i didnt understand it much but i dont think ill be in a rush to read anymore i really did not enjoy this book at all.
