"Strong tale that is unlike any other novel on the market today"
Doctor Jackson Maebry is the golden boy of San Francisco
Memorial Hospital. He is the chief resident in
reconstructive surgery and the protégé of Dr. Peter Brandt,
the head of the department. At a party given by Dr.
Brandt's biotech company Genderm, he meets the beautiful
Allie and for both of them it is love at first sight. They
have four perfect months together before tragedy strikes.
Jackson is summoned to emergency where a woman beaten and
burned almost beyond recognition is struggling to stay
alive. At first Jackson doesn't recognize it's Allie on
the table and when he does he stays at her side until she
wakes from her coma. When she awakens from her comatose
state, she doesn't remember anything about the attack. For
some reason, the lead detective on the case zooms in on
Jackson as the prime suspect. When Jackson starts looking
into Allie's past, he comes to a conclusion that sets him
on a path that will change his life.
Joshua Gilder's debut novel is an exciting psychological
thriller with so many twists and turns that readers will
have to read it in one session just to see how everything
is finally resolved. The hero is a flawed person with many
psychological problems but he lives his life to the
fullest, which is only one of the reasons the reader will
adore him. Though why he is singled out as the prime
suspect besides being the victim's lover is not fully
explained, GHOST IMAGE remains a strong tale that is unlike
any other novel on the market today.
