Book Description

International Playgirl Zaydee finds herself in the midst of
a crisis fueled by international intrigue, multinational corporate greed, and a
convoluted legal system.  Imprisoned
computer hacker, this brilliant jet-setter becomes an international media
celebrity as she defends herself, an unknown girl labeled Princess Jane Doe,
against false charges.  With
complicated and shadowy plots brewing, the book is lush and captivating and
perhaps the best addition to the series yet.

"A truly imaginative, unique page-turner that will leave
readers wanting more."-Kirkus
"...promises to tear a wide path across  the limits
of your imagination and sweep you into its furious,  page-turning action..."-Iforum


Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

"A truly imaginative, unique page-turner that will leave readers wanting more."-Kirkus

Review

"The latest mystery by Holy Ghost Writer dazzles with a tale of computer hacking, legal wrangling and kung-fu fighting.

"A truly imaginative, unique page-turner that will leave readers wanting more." -Kirkus

"[B]ooks in the Count of Monte Cristo series, this one included, are fun, mysterious, and have wonderful over-the-top heroes that are a joy to follow. I truly look forward to finding out where Zaydee's story will take her, and how That Girl Started Her Own Country will merge into the rest of Holy Ghost Writer's series." Tania Staley, Pacific Book Review

"Overall, this book is a good story,...A narrator is the most important character in any fiction work, but in this book the narrator has no name, at least not one this reviewer has ever seen - because this narrator is unique." Hollywood Book Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping thriller September 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was not familiar with the Holy Ghost Writer until this book but certainly, I will have to check out other works by HGW. Zaydee is a very slick character (and she's female, which makes it that much more interesting). Great characters (Steven and Zaydee are well developed) and if you're a fan of thrillers and suspense (like myself), this book is why you read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorifyingly terrific!! July 4, 2013
By zoya
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a diehard fan of Steig Larsson books then you look no more because you are on the right page. This book satiates the needs of Dumas and Larsson fans alike. The spectacularly stunning international drama has an intriguing female protagonist who is not the usual damsel in distress but the headstrong, fearless, intelligent, powerful and manipulative woman just like the protagonist in the Steig Larsson books. Her demeanor while held at the U.S Federal prison is commendable. 'That Girl started her own country' has enough twists and turns to keep on the edge of your seat and also offers a hint on the identity of the author, 'The Holy Ghost Writer'.

This masterfully plotted story gets creepier with every revelation making you hungry for more. And as the author promised, I eagerly wait for the seventh sequel in this series and know it will only get better. The word play of the author is also undoubtedly good and must mention. Don't miss this one. The plot provides you with an unwavering suspense till the very last page. Go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly creative book! September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I must say that I really enjoyed reading "The Girl Who Started Her Own Country", what a great tittle for a book! It is one of those books that once you get into the flow of it, you will not want to stop reading and I think that I may have never read a book as fast as I did with this one. The storyline is fantastic and it kept me griped from the start all throughout the whole book. I truly got lost in this book which is a thing that rarely happens to me. My only wish is that this book was longer as I didn't want it do end. It is a great book which captured my imagination with an awesome adventure storyline and plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a pretty big fan of crime/thriller type novels. This one is right up there with as one of my favorites. The pacing of the book was great, and I found it hard to put down once I got started. Characters were well thought out, and the writing was terrific. I highly recommend picking this one up. Give it a shot and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Thrilling! July 7, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Holy Ghost Writer has really done a great job on this book. It's a suspenseful crime novel that will keep you interested until the very last page. Once I started reading, I could not put this one down! Its a great follow up to the Sultan of Monte Cristo.

Zaydee is everything a man could want; sexy, smart, and mysterious. She is a feminist on a mission, and plans to start her own country with those whom she feels have been abused by the same system that abused her. She is introduced as the woman from "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". The novel includes hactivists, some high tech gadgets, and some interesting aspects of the law. I was not disappointed.

The relationship with Steve Larson shows a soft side to an otherwise intense and calculating woman and nicely weaves the pieces of this puzzle together. She will help him uncover a conspiracy that will rock the scientific world, and she will protect him at all costs.

A great read, very hard to put down once started. Exciting page turner. Definitely will read the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Second Novel September 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading the first book from this author earlier this summer and deciding he was one to follow, I downloaded and read the sequel this weekend. It wasn't disappointing. The feelings of mystery and suspense are loaded into this book, along with several twists and turns that I hadn't seen coming from just reading his first book. It was as enjoyable to read as book 1.

If you're looking for a book to keep your attention and satisfy your need for suspense and intrigue then this one will do it. Waiting on the author's third book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woooow! September 3, 2012
By Terez
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the best books I have ever read. So thrilling, that I had to read it at once.

That Girl Started Her Own Country comes with breath-taking adventure, that connects a nowadays story with the one of the Monte Christo.

I really recommend this book to anyone seeking adventure and thrilling story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will sweep you into its furious, page-turning action September 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Length: 1:10 Mins
"That Girl Started Her Own Country" promises to tear a wide path across the limits of your imagination and sweep you into its furious, page-turning action as you struggle to keep pace with the principle character: Ritual serial-killer come jet-setting playgirl, Zaydee. The hearts of her many sexual conquests -- both male and female -- lying broken and dying by the dozens in her wake...

With a seemingly endless supply of cash, high-tech and super-hacker minions, Zaydee is on a mission to crush the powerful, international, secret society that now threatens the life of her one, true love: Journalist Steven Larson -- whose probing investigations have led him just a little too close to the truth for his own good...

That's okay... Zaydee's got his back (and that's sayin' sumpthin'!) Little by little, she'll allow him to discover a new clue here and there while she plays like a cat with a mouse on a string...

Then she'll pull out all the stops to prove to the members of this nefarious, "Illuminati-like" association that they are no match for the sheer hurricane-force of her will.

In so doing, Zaydee will not only change the outcome of their evil plans, she will mold the world to her liking and go on to found her own country -- a country where women (make that ONE "woman") rule!

And, as we all might be able to guess, the woman destined to rule the new country (in a pair of iron stiletto heels) can be none other than the unstoppable, fearless and devastating "Typhoon Zaydee".
