Blurb:

These gripping true ghost tales, together with some compelling legends, are the cream of those collected by Elliott O’Donnell in over half a century spent ghost-hunting.
He writes of creeping hands, vengeful phantoms and tortured wraiths exactly as they were seen — from accounts by witnesses, and from records made at the time or shortly afterwards.
Besides documenting the cases of others, O’Donnell tells of his own creepy experiences. He has investigated numerous cases of supernatural phenomena, disturbing Me and horrifying, from inexplicable hauntings in lonely country houses to those in the heart of town cursed by appalling events of the past.
No one reading these tales by Britain’s most renowned ghost-hunter can remain, a sceptic … or refrain from a shudder in the dark.
