Written by the people in town that used to do the Haunted Richmond tours, this book is thin on haunts and big on retelling some of the same stories from other books. Still, it is a readable book for those wanting to dabble a bit into the local tales. They tell the "history" of certain buildings and areas and then, almost as if added in, they will say that someone saw a figure in the hall, or heard moans or someone call their name. Yeah, not so scary, but maybe if I were on the tour at night...Some are interesting and quite enjoyable like the Church Hill Tunnel Collapse, some are kind of forced like the YMCA (City Bar) building and others are just poorly told like the Elizabeth Van Lew story. A quick read, but a mixed bag.

These authors have outdone themselves on 'Haunted Richmond' and I highly recommend the book for history and ghost story buffs.
