  • "Cuando el robo a un casino en Atlantic City sale horriblemente mal, Marcus Hayes, eminencia del crimen internacional y cerebro del golpe, no tiene más remedio que llamar a "Jack". Jack Delton es un "ghostman", un experto en "arreglar" escenas de crímenes, capaz de desaparecer y hacer desaparecer lo que haga falta. Su verdadera identidad es un misterio, y muchos incluso lo dan por muerto. En cuestión de horas un jet privado traslada a Jack a la escena del crimen. Es un desastre de colosales dimensiones: uno de los asaltantes yace cosido a balazos a pocos metros del casino y el otro está herido y en paradero desconocido. Un francotirador ha boicoteado el robo, pero ¿quién más sabía del golpe? Jack no tiene demasiado tiempo: los 1,2 millones de dólares en billetes nuevos que han desaparecido llevan incorporada una carga que los destruirá si no se desactiva a tiempo y, por si esto fuera poco, el FBI sigue de cerca sus movimientos. Desde las primeras páginas, Ghostman arrastra al lector al trepidante mundo de Jack. Con una trama impredecible, una prosa apasionante y gran maestría, Roger Hobbs nos brinda una novela que lo coloca a la altura de los mejores autores del género."
  • "Stunningly dark, hugely intelligent and thoroughly addictive, Ghostman announces the arrival of an exciting and highly distinctive novelist. When a casino robbery in Atlantic City goes horribly awry, the man who orchestrated it is obliged to call in a favor from someone who's occasionally called Jack. While it's doubtful that anyone knows his actual name or anything at all about his true identity, or even if he's still alive, he's in his mid-thirties and lives completely off the grid, a criminal's criminal who does entirely as he pleases and is almost impossible to get in touch with. But within hours a private jet is flying this exceptionally experienced fixer and cleaner-upper from Seattle to New Jersey and right into a spectacular mess: one heister dead in the parking lot, another winged but on the run, the shooter a complete mystery, the $1.2 million in freshly printed bills god knows where and the FBI already waiting for Jack at the airport, to be joined shortly by other extremely interested and elusive parties. He has only forty-eight hours until the twice-stolen cash literally explodes, taking with it the wider, byzantine ambitions behind the theft. To contend with all this will require every gram of his skill, ingenuity and self-protective instincts, especially when offense and defense soon become meaningless terms. And as he maneuvers these exceedingly slippery slopes, he relives the botched bank robbery in Kuala Lumpur five years earlier that has now landed him this unwanted new assignment. From its riveting opening pages, Ghostman effortlessly pulls the reader into Jack's refined and peculiar world'and the sophisticated shadowboxing grows ever more intense as he moves, hour by hour, toward a constantly reimprovised solution. With a quicksilver plot, gripping prose and masterly expertise, Roger Hobbs has given us a novel that will immediately place him in the company of our most esteemed crime writers. Exclusively for the eBook: Autobiography of a Ghostman."@en
