In this investigation of the aftermath of communism in Poland, Hungary, East Germany and Czechoslovakia, each chapter centres round a legal case, highlighting the moral, political and legal questions raised by the changes in these countries, but also weaving in other characters and stories - of espionage, sexual blackmail and moral compromise. Should a young East German border-guard who shot someone trying to escape to the West be brought to trial for obeying what was then the law? Should all the former communists in Czechoslovakia be brought to trial, even if they were only trying to do what was best for themselves and their families? The book presents an examination of how these East European countries come to terms with their past.

I expected a work that delved into the past and showed the impact of communism and aftermath of the fall of communism.
There is some of that but it appears the author needed to do more work to uncover the meaning of the ghosts, as she calls them.
In her defense, though, she does tell some good stories of real people but the haunting title must be the work of the publisher.
If one has the ability and desire to skip read through the book and is willing to forego a word for word reading, I recommend the book as a quick read.
