A mysterious love story between Hamburg and Taipeh. The unsolved murder of her young Taiwanese lover Ai-ling leaves the Hamburg artist Sophie Schmitt completely disoriented. She dedicates a video-installation to her and shows it in Taipei. During the opening she is approached by a mysterious journalist. Sophie is fascinated at first glance by Mei-li, the young journalist. Mei-li takes her to visit the famous Taipei night markets and tries to seduce the artist. Sophie, still mourning her lost lover, rejects Mei-li and returns immediately to Hamburg. Shortly afterwords Mei-li shows up on her doorstep, unannounced. Sophie takes her in and finally falls for her. But soon she realizes that her new lover is secretly investigating Ai-ling's death. Strange happenings occur, sudden flashes of recollection come and go, and then Sophie finds out that there is no Mei-Li working for a Taiwanese newspaper and that no one by that name ever entered Germany.

A wonderful mystery, where East meets West.
7 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ghosted is a mystery set in Hamburg and Taipeh, surrounding the mysterious death of a Taiwanese woman named Ai-ling Chen, in which her German lover, Sophie Schmitt, is grieving over.

The mystery is set during the Ghost Month, celebrated in Taiwan. There is a belief that during the 7th month of the year, ghosts gain access to the the world of the living. On the 15th day of the month, the Ghost Festival is held, representing the connection between the living and the dead. Offerings and rituals are performed to appease the wandering souls or to guide them back to where they belong, like offering food and burning money.

Sophie is an artist who falls in love with Ai-Ling, who had moved to Hamburg to gain more information about her father. One day, Ai-ling mysteriously dies. Sophie creates an art installation dedicated to Ai-ling. At her exhibit opening in Taiwan, she meets a Taiwanese journalist, who wants to interview her. Sophie tells her that she does not do interviews; however, she's persistent and soon shows up in Hamburg. As the story unfolds, not everything is as it seems.

This is a wonderful mystery. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed it, I wish there were more twists and turns, with a shocking ending.
