Join paranormal expert and ghost hunter Hans Holzer as he investigates the most famous haunted locations around the world
Ghosts have been known to haunt not only houses but other locations as well—such as dark forests, trains, ships, and even airplanes. Professor Hans Holzer looks at several of the most menacing of these cases, from the ghost bride of Nob Hill in San Francisco to the “gray man” of Pawley’s Island in South Carolina and the haunted organ at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

I am disappointed because I thought it was a book on all haunted locations. It was mostly about how Columbus was not the true discoverer of America! If I wanted to read about who really discovered America, I would read a book on it, to me, it is irrelevant. Anyway, I like the idea ofColumbus discovering America.

Note: I received this book via Netgalley. As the book consisted of various anecdotes about a haunted place but it was presented in a story tale like manner. For me there was a lack of substance related to each place and no real explanation. The storyline seemed to follow emotion rather than fact which was what I expected when I first picked up the book. Overall this book did not meet my expectations of what I wanted to read and even though the stories were fascinating I found the whole thing hard to get through.
