    Excellent Read! Most Intriguing Stories!

    The stories are fasinating! Short and to the point! I do work at St. Joseph Middle school in the Boiler Room, and now I walk around the school with my senses on high alert!

    A reviewer

    I thought this book was interesting and somewhat scary at the same time. Seeing I grew up in Manchester NH I have been to some of these places, and others I haven't. Some of these places just by looking at them or driving by you'd know that they would be haunted. Can't wait to lend it to others to read.

    Captures you from the first page!

    A nice interesting read. The stories are like the ones heard sitting around a campfire in the dark woods with good friends.I didn't want the book to end!

    The awe and mystery of ghosts when you first start to read

    Very well written, description is flawless in each story. Trying to savor it so the book will not end too fast.
