''The Ghost'' is a 2010 novel series written by George Mann. There are two novels titled ''Ghosts of Manhattan'' and ''Ghosts of War''.

This is an ongoing series of noir mystery novels set in an alternate, steampunk-inspired 1920s New York and featuring the adventures of socialite Gabriel Cross and his hard-bitten vigilante alter ego, the Ghost. America is in the midst of a cold war with a British Empire that has only just buried Queen Victoria, her life artificially preserved to the age of 107. Coal-powered cars roar along roads thick with pedestrians, biplanes take off from standing with primitive rocket boosters, and monsters lurk behind closed doors and around every corner.

There have been targeted murders occurring in New York, with victims found with ancient Roman coins placed on their eyelids after death. An Italian-American group of gangsters and their boss, dubbed "The Roman", appear to be responsible for the murders. However, The Ghost soon discovers that there is more to The Roman than it appears, in the supernatural sense.
