The Ghost of Sam Webster

by Craig Higginson

Picador Africa

A brooding, sprawling, stormy read that sucks you in and propels you along at the pace of the flooding Buffalo River.   One of those wonderful reads that goes back and forth in time, The Ghost of Sam Webster is set on a lodge at Isandlwana, a place filled with ghosts past and present.  The story centres around a missing girl, her complicated family and a young writer visiting the lodge under the guise of writing a book about his disgraced ancestor.  It jumps back in time to the Battle of Isandlwana to a British soldier who is more suited to studying natural history than fighting for Crown and Country.  Love and hate, murder and mystery, loyalty and betrayal, cowardice and courage – they’re all here in this beautifully written, multi-layered read.

Higginson’s most haunting and ambitious novel to date – The Times

‘A phenomenal and deeply affecting story. With immaculate prose, Craig Higginson deftly excavates our histories, both personal and political.’– Siphiwe Gloria Ndlovu

In The Ghost of Sam Webster, Higginson has shown his maturity as a novel writer; one can only look forward to what comes next. – KZN Literary Tourism
