Read Unquiet Ghosts Online Free - Eight years ago, her husband and children were killed in a plane crash. Now, new evidence reveals that they didn’t die—her husband deliberately vanished—and that he knows a secret the powerful forces will stop at nothing to keep hidden.
Kathy Kelly’s world was shattered when a plane carrying her husband—an Iraq War veteran and devoted father—and her two children vanished from the sky one night. No trace of the plane was ever found.
Eight years later, Kathy has struggled to rebuild her life, but then wreckage of his plane is found in the wilderness of Great Smoky Mountain National Park—hundreds of miles from where her husband’s plane should have been. The pilot perished in the crash, but there is no sign of Jack or the children. Could they have made it out alive after all? But if so, where have they been all this time? Where are they now?
As Kathy searches for any clue about what happened to her family, the investigation uncovers some unsettling clues—including a briefcase containing millions of dollars in cash, a priceless mask stolen from an Iraqi museum, and a clue that links Jack’s disappearance with the suspicious death of Kathy’s mother years ago.
But she soon learns that others have been looking for the wreckage and its occupants for a long time. Others who are determined to make sure she never finds her family and that they remain dead. Shadowy, powerful people who will kill for what was on board—a secret her husband was the keeper of. A secret so powerful it will open a Pandora’s box of bloody revenge—one that reaches back into the past and into the highest echelons of wealth and power, all the way to the White House.
This breathless, pulse-pounding thriller examines the very real billions in cash and priceless artifacts that vanished into the pockets of powerful American men during the Iraq war, and examines the extreme lengths some people will go to protect the secrets of what really happened to all that money.

I'd rate this 3.5 stars.
Political intrigue and corruption. Stolen antiquities. The aftereffects of war. Family secrets. Glenn Meade's Unquiet Ghosts hits all of those buttons, and then some. This is a thriller in which very little is what it seems.

Write this down if you want, and never let anyone tell you otherwise: Love has a price. There never can be—never will be and never has been—a single love that comes without agony.
Another thing I’ve learned: Sometimes those we worship harbor unimaginable secrets.
Glenn Meade’s newest thriller is a...

Although we've seen the basic plot line before (man disappears with/out kids but did he really die?) but Meade has updated it with an interesting topical twist. The Iraqi money and PTSD upped the game, even if the conspiracies were a bit much. Kathy is a very complex character and Meade gives us...

Good story but over emotes
I almost stopped reading this novel when every plot action was accompanied by overly emotional descriptions of the main character's unhappy life. It was too much. Yes, many bad things happened, and yes, the author is a good writer, but enough is enough. We get it--the ma...

An engrossing, pulse-pounding thriller that brings to the center the sufferings of our soldiers returning from the Iraq war and their battles with PTSD, wrapped around the theft of priceless artifacts and billions of dollars from war-torn Iraq. Another high octane story from one of the best in th...

A good read - a little long where kathy's thoughts are concerned, but Unquiet ghosts still held my interest and I read late into the night. It was hard to put down. What more could I ask for.
