Macmillan Readers: The Ghost
The Macmillan Readers series are carefully graded from Starter to Upper Intermediate (A1-B2) to help students choose the right reading material for their ability. Our list of titles includes great stories from both contemporary and classic authors. When British Prime Minister Adam Lang's ghost writer, Mike McAra, dies in mysterious circumstances, a new writer is brought in to write Lang's biography. But it soon becomes clear that Lang and his wife Ruth are a much more complicated couple than they first seem. The Ghost is a powerful commentary on the policies employed by the British government on 'The War on Terror' during the Tony Blair years.
