Vera Van Slyke was a muckraking journalist who crusaded against Spiritualist mediums, confident they were all fakes. But she was also a ghost hunter with proof that spirits actually do haunt the living. "Ghosts are like cats," Vera once explained. "They're real, but they hardly come when called."One Spiritualist medium Vera defrauded was Lida Prášilová. The fake psychic agreed to share her professional secrets with the journalist, which led to a ghost hunt-which led to a deep friendship. Chronicling the ghostly investigations she shared with Vera, Lida became a Watson to a very distinctive Holmes.With laughs and chills, the chronicles span from 1899 to 1909-a decade of ghostly mysteries-and you'll find them here in Help for the Haunted. Join Vera and Lida as they prowl through lonely mansions, bustling theaters, and underground tunnels to unravel the riddles of the Great Beyond . . . and beyond!
