More True stories by the world’s greatest ghost-hunter.

The Jansen’s kept one of their rooms boarded up – because those who’d stayed there in the past always experienced a strange compulsion to kill. And then one night, a visiting cousin with nowhere else to stay emerged from the room clutching a pair of gleaming scissors in her fist.

What was the power that had her in its spell? Only Elliott O’Donnell’s steel-nerved persistence could track down the origin of such a trance.

Here are more case histories by the fearless author of NEL’s bestselling “CASEBOOK OF GHOSTS”, Volume 1. This sequel includes true tales of headless sailors, disappearing secretaries, haunted elevators and much, much more.

Thanks to Steve Goodwin for providing the scan and blurb!
