Marissa Anderson is broken after her mother's death and the move to the small town where her father grew up isn't helping.

With her help, the newly formed Ghost Hunters Society begins to dig up the whispers of the past as they document and help the restless souls of Culvers Grove.

When the Ghost Screams

Author: Leslie Rule
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
ISBN: 1449402801
Release Date: 2011-08-01
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

I do not know or pretend to know what happens when we die. Still, I hear the ghost scream. I hear the screaming and am compelled to write the stories of those whose lives were snatched away. They are the murder victims, the ones who roam restlessly. They are the headliners of this book." --Leslie Rule Hauntings--the word conjures up immediate and insatiable curiosity. Paranormal author Leslie Rule explores a new twist on this strange phenomenon when she explores brutal deaths--and subsequent hauntings--all over America in When the Ghost Screams. No sector of the country is left untouched by these mystical happenings. The Midwest, Northeast, Southwest, and, of course, Salem, Massachusetts (to which the author has her own bizarre connection), all have unique and gruesome cases of their own ghostly incidents. Furthermore, Leslie's hometown of Seattle, Wash., is rumored to be haunted and has a violent history of its own that is explored. Prominent theory suggests that whether homicide or accidental, a violent death may cause the soul to linger behind on earth. The author's own research leads her to believe unsolved violent deaths may be the cause of the most-observed paranormal activity. Leslie has visited each site and interviewed reliable witnesses who have actually encountered ghosts. Accompanied by the author's own dramatic black-and-white photographs, When the Ghost Screams also introduces sidebar articles on notorious crimes and trials featuring ghosts. Best-selling crime author Ann Rule writes the foreword.
