Following John Grisham's international bestsellers, Camino Island and Camino Winds, Camino Ghosts is the story of an island off the Florida coast with a haunted, violent history and an uncertain future. Dark Isle off the Florida coast is said to be cursed: drownings, disappearances and hauntings have been the fate of intruders. The people who lived there were once enslaved. Now abandoned, it is the target of greedy developers. Lovely Jackson is the last survivor and claims to be its legal owner. But there is not a shred of evidence to prove that is true. It's unlikely that the developers will be deterred by the claims of one old woman. They have millions; Lovely only has Steve Mahon, a pro bono environmental lawyer, and Mercer Mann, a floundering novelist, to fight in her corner. With the court case looming and the bulldozers waiting to roll in, Steve and Mercer are in a race against time to unearth the truth behind Lovely's story and save the legacy of the island. Praise for Camino Winds: 'In American icon John Grisham's new novel, Camino Winds, an odd assortment of mystery and crime authors, some of them felons themselves, discover one of their colleagues has been murdered during the fury of a massive hurricane-the perfect crime scene' Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing 'The Camino Island series, featuring trouble-prone bookseller Bruce Cable, is a perfect escapist mix of detective action, insider riffs on the literary world - and even a little romance' Mail on Sunday 'Camino Winds has all the usual Grisham hallmarks - a pacy plot and tension-filled scenes' Independent 'Another compelling read from Grisham, and will satisfy old fans and please new readers alike' Press Association Camino Ghosts was a Sunday Times top five bestseller in the first week of June 2024.

Praise for Camino Winds Cable is an engaging protagonist, full of ambiguities, a man whose own morality is full of 'grey areas' . . . Camino Winds has all the usual Grisham hallmarks - a pacy plot, tension-filled scenes - and the descriptions of a storm-battered island are well executed * Independent * A perfect summer read, enjoying all his plotting wizardry and deft characterisation * Irish Independent * Another gem from John Grisham . . . There is something very soothing about Camino Winds, despite the fact it deals with more than one brutal murder and a drugs conspiracy. The follow-up to Grisham's Camino Island, it's very different in tone to his legal thrillers . . . Grisham knows what he's doing * Observer *
