Summary

An abandoned plane. A dead body. A small town threatening to explode.

‘A searing, thunderous, heartbreaking thriller. Wiley Cash has talent to burn.’ Chris Whitaker

Winston did not hear it so much as feel it as it passed over their house and into the trees across the waterway.

The sheriff struggling for re-election and haunted by his past.
The mystery plane which crash-lands on his island.
The daughter returning home to hide from her troubles.
The FBI pilot sent in to help.

As the mystery of the abandoned plane and the dead body stokes long-simmering racial tensions, a moment of reckoning draws ever closer for the town of Oak Island. When Ghosts Come Home is the thrilling new page-turner from prize-winning novelist Wiley Cash.

An unputdownable knock-out: written in deft, thrilling prose, this book is both a gripping murder mystery and a thoughtful exploration of systemic racism in America. The perfect novel for our present moment.

A treatise on race in America wrapped in a family drama wrapped in a mystery . . . Cash puts his whole heart on the page with these flawed, true characters, and the reward is ours.

Therese Anne Fowler, author of A GOOD NEIGHBORHOOD
Critic Reviews

When Ghosts Come Home is a gripping mystery. Set in 1984, Cash’s exploration of race, justice, and grief – of the fault lines that rip apart families and communities – could not be more timely.

Lou Berney, author of NOVEMBER ROAD
Critic Reviews

Taut, tense, and tender - this novel hits every note. I loved it and devoured it with fury, straight to its blazing end.
