This book surveys the history and paranormal phenomenon of several places around the world, focused on those the most haunted and scary. The author does an excellent job of describing the places and presents the paranormal in a nice story format instead of just listing the phenomenon (like some books do). His writing is tight, well crafted, and grammatically correct. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, and have read others of this author that are also excellent. I received a free ARC pdf for a fair review, but I own several of this author's book prior to this one and added this to my Kindle collection when it was released. A must read!
