Description

Ramsey Campbell's Ghosts Know is a fascinating exploration of the twists and turns of reality-media personalities, the line between the dead and the living…and how the truth can be twisted to serve all manner of reality.
Graham Wilde is a contentious, bombastic host of the talk radio program Wilde Card. His job, as he sees it, is to stir the pot, and he is quite good at it, provoking many a heated call with his eccentric and often irrational audience. He invites Frank Jasper, a purported psychic, to come on the program. He firmly believes that the man is a charlatan, albeit a talented one. When Jasper appears on his show, Wilde draws upon personal knowledge about the man to embarrass him on air, using patter similar to that which Jasper utilizes in his act.

Wilde's attack on Jasper earns him the enmity of his guest and some of the members of his audience. He next encounters Jasper when the psychic is hired by the family of a missing adolescent girl to help them find her. Wilde is stunned and then horrified when Jasper seems to suggest that he might be behind the girl's disappearance.
Thus begins a nightmarish journey as circumstantial evidence against Wilde begins to mount, alienating his listeners, the radio station, and eventually, his lover. As Wilde descends into a pit of despair, reality and fantasy begin to blur in a kaleidoscope of terror….

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 05, 2013 – Campbell s latest novel is intelligently crafted and flawlessly paced, with carefully delineated characters and an uncanny ability to confound readers expectations. Though the venerable Campbell (Midnight Sun) is known for horror, this is more a tale of psychological suspense set against a wittily constructed backdrop of conglomerate-controlled media. British radio host Graham Wilde enjoys his role as the smartest guy in the room, infuriating his most irrational listeners while entertaining an ever-increasing audience. Then Wilde picks the wrong target. His on-air deconstruction of the methods of theatrical psychic Frank Jasper, who has joined the search for missing 15-year-old Kylie Goodchild, provokes retaliation from Wilde s listeners, his bosses, and the police. As Jasper vindictively forges links between Wilde and the crime, Campbell mines the suspense through deliberately ambiguous dialogue and Wilde s own frustrating intractability. In an increasingly oppressive atmosphere, Wilde s detached skepticism blossoms into a paranoid rage, and doubt is artfully cast as to whether he is wrongly accused or just cornered. Campbell is in top form, cleverly pulling readers strings at every turn.
