A real-life ghost hunter shares true stories and up-close explorations of haunted sites.
Muffled voices in an empty attic, heavy footsteps on a vacant stairwell, silent shadows across a darkened room . . . The spirit world has intrigued Jeff Cole for decades, leading him from a career in archaeology to his passionate work as a paranormal researcher. Going beyond superstition and fantasy, Cole arms himself with cutting-edge technology, in a quest to discover actual scientific evidence of the realm where the souls of the departed continue to dwell—and make contact with the living.
In Ghostly Encounters, Cole explains his techniques and chronicles his journey as he searches sites both famous and little known for signs of the world between life and death. Taking us to wide-ranging places, from Gettysburg to the Ohio State Reformatory, the Villisca Axe Murder house, St. Albans Sanatorium, and more, he shares first-person eyewitness accounts, as well as testimonies by the various paranormal investigative teams he has worked with, in chilling accounts of fascinating discoveries and encounters with the “other side.”
As a bonus, Ghostly Encounters also includes links to video and audio clips, so readers can enjoy a multimedia ghost-hunting experience.
