The controversy brings reporters and protesters swarming to the Martha’s Vineyard mansion where Lang is staying with his wife, Ruth (Kim Cattral SEX AND THE CITY, MY BOY JACK), and his media-handler turned mistress, Amelia. As The Ghost works, he begins uncover to clues revealing the previous writer may have pieced together a dark secret linking Lang to the CIA, and that somehow this information is hidden in the manuscript he left behind.
