My Review:

[insert tantrum in 3… 2… 1…]

One of the best, creepiest compilations of haunted locations. This book features both known and unknown haunted locations around the nation. I have read an extensive amount of these anthologies written by independent authors. Most of the times they’re well thought out and well put together, but the grammar and writing are lacking. Not with this book. Author, Jamie Davis does a fantastic job proving her writing skills and abilities. I found myself researching some of the locations mentioned in the book. As a paranormal investigator, avid reader, wannabe writer… I loved this book!!

If I ever win the lotto and decide to take a couple years off of work, this book, Kala Ambrose’s and Jefferson Davis‘ books will be my holy grail, road mappin’ investigation itinerary books. 

Description from Author:

The Shadow Man haunts penitentiary cell blocks.
A chilling wind runs through the Death Tunnel.
The Red Eyes Apparition lurks in abandoned hallways.

Explore frightening ghost stories and true paranormal encounters at ten well-known, haunted institutions across the United States. This unique collection of investigations is filled with terrifying photos, spooky highlights from on-site tours, and historical information about each location.

Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums explores the country’s scariest institutions, including the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, West Virginia Penitentiary, and St. Albans Sanatorium. Discover creepy conversations between the authors and restless spirits, interviews with facility staff and knowledgeable ghost hunters, and helpful tips gathered from each investigation.
