From Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman, the authors of the bestselling Weird U.S. series, comes something a little different, designed to send shivers down the spine: a book on America’s scariest haunted places. Some of these spirit-filled spots are well known and open to the public, while others are private residences that will have to remain intriguing from a distance: No visits allowed! The stories include firsthand tales that have a powerful “creepiness factor” and believability. The various sites include haunted houses, ghostly graveyards, cursed roads, eerie eateries, spirited saloons, and more. But be warned: This collection of true tales set in actual locations is so chilling that you may not want to read this alone at night!

User Review  - Lynnette Franciscus - Goodreads

Filled with interesting tales, some creepy, some simply mysterious, a few a tad disappointing for their lack of details. Read full review

User Review  - Aprille - Goodreads

A great diversion and potential tour guide. As with any compilation from readers, some stories were better than others. Higher quality than most ghost story books, though. Read full review
