Review: Ghost by Janie Crouch

ghostTitle: Ghost

Author: Janie Crouch

Year of publication: Out today! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Grace Brandt

The hero: Linear Tactical employee Dorian Lindstrom

The blurb: Everyone eventually breaks under torture.

It’s a truth elite solider and government agent Dorian Lindstrom, codename Ghost, knows firsthand. His body may have recovered from what was done to him in that Afghani prison six years ago, but his mind…not quite so much.

He’s seeing dead people.

Grace Brandt, government codename Wraith, knows her past can’t be forgiven. She has stayed “dead” for as long as she could, but now the forces she’s been fighting, the secrets slowly suffocating her, won’t stay hidden any longer.

And the man she helped break—the man she’s always loved—is the only one who can stop the danger threatening them all.

When it comes to keeping the people he loves safe, including the one who thinks she’s not worthy of it, there is no danger—past, present or future—Dorian won’t battle.

The Ghost will rise. 

Standalone or series: This is book five in the Linear Tactical series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: The hero of this book is the elusive Dorian Lindstrom. We know from previous books that he doesn’t play well with others, although we’ve never really known why. He’s known to go wandering in the forest for weeks on end, away from civilisation.

In his book, we find out why. We also meet Grace Brandt, also known as Wraith. She’s been dead for six years, but has no choice but to seek out Dorian when she finds out something that threatens both their lives and the lives of others they once worked with.

Dorian is desperate for answers – why is Grace still alive? Why is someone trying to kill them both? What secrets does she know that she’s not telling him? He’ll do whatever he has to do to keep his LT family safe, even if it means sacrificing the only woman he’s ever loved… or himself.

Every time I read a Linear Tactical book, I think I can’t possibly love it any more than the previous one, but every time Janie Crouch proves me wrong. With strong characters you’re cheering for, twists and turns in every chapter, and a revelation that you won’t see coming, the storyline and the romance will draw you in and keep you hooked.
