    Unleashed is the true story of a young woman, Tina Resch, who has the uncanny ability to move objects without touching them. Parapsychologist, Dr. William Roll, comes to the Resch home to observe the phenomenon. Dr. Roll gives a detailed account and analysis of all the events that take place. The murder aspect of the story comes near the end of the book when Tina is accused of murdering her daughter.

    Particularly fascinating is Dr. Roll's scientific explaination of telekinesis, which has to do with neurology and physics. It provides good insight to this interesting phenomenon.

    Unleashed is a gripping story that's hard to put down. If you enjoy reading about unusual psychic phenomenon, you will enjoy this book.

    unleashed, only the beginning

    Unleashed is the powerful and sad story of Tina Resch, a fourteen year old girl around whom paranormal events took place. Dr. William Roll became involved and he, along with others witnessed some amazing phenomena. Equally amazing is what happened to Tina years later. Tina, now known as Christina Boyer is serving a life sentence for the killing of her baby, a crime she did not commit. The real killer received a shorter sentence. As much as anything, it bespeaks (poorly)of the criminal justice system and court appointed attorneys. It is a must read for anyone interested in the paranormal.

    well written enticing biography

    In 1984 teenager Tina Resch gained fifteen minutes of fame as the focus of major poltergeist activity. Among those observing what was occurring in her family¿s Columbus, Ohio home were noted parapsychologist William Roll and his investigative partner Kelly Powers. Mr. Roll relates what he saw and what he was told by other eyewitnesses.---- The rest of the Resch story occurs a few years later. In 1988 Tina gives birth to a girl. She raised the child by herself until she met divorced father David Herrin. In 1992 Georgia, police arrest Tina and David for the brutal murder of Amber. Tina confessed and was convicted to spend life in prison.---- Mr. Roll believes that Tina has special extrasensory powers that enable her to do extraordinary telekinetic actions. The author admits that he is fascinated with her prowess and likes her so has a bias towards Tina. The writers insist that Tina did not commit the infanticide, but fail to defend their assertion; instead they insist that too many years considered a freak by ¿friends¿ and her adopted parents took its toll so she simply confessed. Most of the writing focuses on the paranormal happenings, which will attract many readers, but also turns Tina into an oddity as she is rarely presented as a person with battered feelings. Still, this well written and enticing biography combines a true crime tale (towards the end of the book) with a documented poltergeist series of episodes. ---- Harriet Klausner
