Rosalind "Ross" Magellan, an experienced New York undercover detective, has always trusted her partner, Harry Earles, nicknamed "the Ghost," until Harry starts stalking Ross, threatening her with a secret from her past. Reprint.

New York City Police Detective Rosalind Magellan is working undercover. She is tracking a crooked judge and his lawyer who seem to be involved in every kind of illegal money making scheme. Ross needs to get the evidence ­ without blowing her cover. An engaging methodical story that gets complicated by the fact that someone is tracking Ross' every movement. Someone knows what she is up to. Marc Olden has created some excellent characters for Ghost. Ross Magellan is a keeper. I would follow her investigations anywhere.
What a good read!! Smart story about a top female undercover cop moving up the ladder and working on a dangerous set-up. As the story moves along, the reader realizes she's not the only one doing the "setting up". Lots of great one-liners, jokes and smart talk that seem right off the street. The story really moves - each chapter propels you on to the next. Loved the female main character - strong and tough - and the male characters were real and equally strong. The author gives his readers interesting facts about all sorts of things like the many uses of cashew nuts (!) and some great insight into the world of undercover cops. A little of the TV hit "NYPD" and some "Rush". Really enjoyed this book! Thank you Marc Olden.
Thanks to Marc Olden and The Ghost I spent another sleepless night- once I start one of Oldens books I just can't put it down. The plot for the Ghost was so masterfully woven it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. The characters were so real, I felt I was right beside Ross Magellan, feeling her every emotion. When the book was finished I felt the loss of a friend who I gone through so much with. Bravo Marc Olden! I look foward to the next one.
I found the characterization stimulating and engrossing, as well asthe subject matter. But what should come across as emotional and tenseseems exactly the opposite of that, as if the cold and calculating Ross is actually writing the story, deeply denying and burying any pretense of feeling to protect herself. If that is the authors intention, it is done well. I found it difficult to latch onto because of this.
Moving away further from his Eastern Spiritual themes, Marc Olden writes another fascinated book full of twists and turns.
Based in New York, it has all the ingredients of the "bad Big Apple" . Corrupt politicians, undercover police, prostitution, drugs and stalkers.
Like Ed McBain, Olden builds strong characters that the reader relates and sympathise with, while his use of police procedures and lingo gives the book a feeling of "reality"
A most enjoyable read.
