Overview

Greyfriar’s Cemetery in Edinburgh has a centuries-old reputation for being haunted. Its gruesome history includes witchcraft, body-snatching, desecration, corpse dumping, and live burial. In 1998, something new and inexplicable began occurring in the graveyard. Visitors encountered “cold spots,” strange smells, and banging noises. They found themselves overcome by nausea, or cut and bruised by something they couldn’t see. Over a period of two years, 24 people were knocked unconscious. Homes next to the graveyard were plagued by smashing crockery, moving objects, and unidentified laughter. Witnesses to these incidents ran into the hundreds. The section of Greyfriars where the attacks occurred is now chained shut, but the poltergeist still grows stronger.

It's easy to dismiss ghost stories as the product of overactive imaginations, but perhaps it's made all the more easier by our hope and desire to not contemplate the paranormal. After all, it's hard to believe in ghost during noise and bustle of daylight hours. This is exactly what this book acknowledges before telling the story characters like Ben and David whom we can't help but love, and their unsettling experiences in Scotland's Greyfriar's Cemetery. If it doesn't absolutely shatter our doubts about the existence of the paranormal, this book threatens to challenge what we believe, or rather what we don't believe in, and replace it with a morbid curiosity of what really goes on at Greyfriar's, and elsewhere were the paranormal turns up. If only Scotland was a bus ride away.
