There is no substitute for experience, and when long experience is linked with meticulous investigatory powers and an objective, scientific approach to the phenomena being studied, you have all the necessary ingredients for Peter Underwood's excellent new book. The text is lucid and fluent and is amply supported by the excellent illustrations.
In addition to the fascinating, detailed accounts of many of the haunted sites that Peter has investigated in person, he fearlessly confronts the numerous, general theories of what 'ghosts' and 'hauntings' really are – and his open approach to these theories is especially helpful and valuable.
Among the many highlights of this outstanding work, Peter has included Beaulieu; East Riddlesden Hall; Gawsworth, with its ghost of a jester, and Scotney Castle.
When paranormal phenomena are investigated and described with the clarity and accuracy found in this very welcome addition to supernatural research literature, they provide the reader with many hours of fascinating and worthwhile reading.
