I have lived in Grand Rapids for 73 years. I used to drive for Paul Steketee and sons. As I delivered packages up on the hill with all the old houses I would wonder about the spooks. This book is also a great history lesson. I highly recommend this book.

I bought this item because I am huge fan of this already established series. I was hoping for a book that was a good as the others and I was in no way disappointed. This book was jammed full of information on all the stories we thought we knew.  Who knew that Grand Rapids was home to multiple serial killers? Who knew that much of the Michigan Bell Building lore was incorrect? Who knew that the murder of a young secretary would not only remain unsolved but also be the catalyst for a future haunting? I was already hooked, but I have to say I will buy anything written by any one of these talented authors. Kudos to the team of Bray, DuShane and Rathsack, for yet another great book.
