Overview

"The perfect combination for a paranormal investigation."
David Wells, Most Haunted

A unique collection of episodes from the case files of the New England Ghost Project

Journey into a world of the unexplained and the unknown, a world where what you can't see captivates all your attention. A trance medium and a paranormal scientist team up in this spellbinding collection of 17 supernatural mysteries, a mere sampling of the spooky episodes in their vast ghost hunting case files.

Former skeptic Ron Kolek, with his infrared camera and EMF meter, and fifth-generation psychic Maureen Wood, with her sixth sense and pendulum, have become experts in investigating ghosts, whether they're helping the descendant of an accused witch, checking out the spirits of Lizzie Borden's slain parents, or assisting a monk with an exorcism. Their unique partnership adds a new dimension, and their adventures will test the senses and challenge everyday thinking…and just might make you believe in the paranormal.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With a gaggle of friends and equipment in tow, Wood (the medium) and Kolek (the scientist) explore allegedly haunted New England houses, restaurants, and historical sites. Kolek, the founder of the New England Ghost Project, offers scientific explanations and observations regarding the realm of the unknown while Wood flexes her ability to channel the deceased, who appear in the form of ghosts and poltergeists. The duo turn up their fair share of spooky phenomena, including phantom infant cries, vanishing knickknacks and ghostly apparitions. More intense encounters include an apparent exorcism in which a woman and her dog are tortured by a poltergeist. Though the pair do a commendable job balancing the spooky goings-on with rational explanations and a healthy measure of doubt, it's difficult to believe this will convince a skeptic. Still, the partners maintain a breezy excitement throughout, and the episodic nature of each chapter makes for great serial before-bed reading.

    One-of-a-kind Ghost Hunting Chronicle- the right way to do it

    The authors, a ghost-hunter and a medium are the perfect combination in exploring haunted places. All ghost hunters should explore haunted locations with a medium (who can send ghosts into the light)- this is a fascinating book with several accounts of what the medium senses (she's a trance medium, which means the ghosts use her to communicate instead of talk to her- which is scary). Excellent book, excellent example for all ghost hunters! Highly recommended.
