The Ghostwriters
by Mickey J. Corrigan

GENRE:  Psychological Thriller, Romance



She's funny, cynical, and kinda crazy, but she knows how to tell a story.

A struggling writer living in Manhattan, Jacy McMasters is the first to admit she's a terrific liar and a screw-up. Then the ghost of the famous novelist JD Balinger asks her to "channel" a follow-up to his classic coming of age book The Watcher in the Sky. Along with her new boyfriend, a bear of a man who has no patience for mind games, the ghost in Jacy's head forces her to confront a lifetime of secrets—dark secrets. Secrets she's been keeping from herself.



When I woke up the next day, I felt awful. My eyes were swollen shut so I had to tumble out of bed and crawl through clustering dust-devils to the bathroom. I'd suffered worse hangovers after overindulging, but there was a real sharp edge to this one. When I steamed my eyes open with a hot wash cloth, I noticed it right away.

I was still hallucinating.

"You look bad, Jacy my girl," JD said from his cross-legged perch on my wicker laundry hamper. "First thing we need to do is ease back on the hard core boozing."

I screamed once or twice before he uncrossed his spidery limbs and said, "Don't be a ninny. You know who I am, that I come from you. From your own deranged mind. So what's the sense of yelling, disturbing your neighbors?"

He had a point. I calmed a little and said, "You may be an illusion, my illusion. But that does not mean you can stay in my bathroom while I shower."

He shrugged, brushed by me on his way out. "I'll make coffee. And when you come out, all fresh and bright-eyed, we'll discuss how I can save you. Help dislodge you from your habitual cycle of wanton, destructive choices. No more dabbling. Time for you to shed your loser image, child. It is high time. Take my word."



This book takes place in NYC and is about a writer, Jacy who is struggling and battling a troubled past, a dysfunctional family, and mental illness.  Jacy channels the ghost of recently deceased writer JD Balinger who requests she help him write the sequel to his book, “The Watcher in the Sky.”

There is no glitz and glamour in this book.  The author, Mickey J. Corrigan, tells it like it is and doesn’t hold back.  Jacy’s life is not pretty; but with each page we delve deeper into her issues and leave with a better understanding of these complicated layers.

I loved how descriptive this book was written.  There was such detail that it was easy to picture the scenes and locations.  I have never been to NYC, but after reading this book it was hard not to feel like you were actually there watching the story unfold.

I loved the mystery and suspense of this book and found myself sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened. This book was very engaging and filled with so many different dynamics that it kept you fully entertained the whole way through.

I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone interested in an exciting, intriguing, edgy, psychological book filled with grit, mystery, humor, suspense, and so much more!
