I would like to take a moment to thank New Page Books and Warwick Associates for this free review copy. This book is scheduled for release in a week and a half and I recommend it for the paranormal enthusiast.

513rgfinlnlThe World’s Most Haunted Hospitals by Richard Estep is just over 240 pages with a modest Notes and Index section. In it’s 17 chapters, Estep covers many of the well-known haunted hospitals from around the world.

I have to admit that I really enjoy this sort of book and I found it to be a very compelling read. Each chapter is an easy-to-consume size, paced nicely, and littered with interesting pictures. While Estep’s Introduction set the table nicely for the book, I think that I would like to have seen a conclusion chapter to tie everything up.

All in all, I thought that The World’s Most Haunted Hospitals was superb and I recommend it for the Paranormal fans. I give it 4 stars out of 5.

Product description:

If hospital walls could talk, what tales would they tell?

Hospitals are the nexus point between life and death, the place into which people enter this world, but also exit it. In The World’s Most Haunted Hospitals, paramedic and paranormal investigator Richard Estep recounts some of the most fascinating–and often chilling–stories of hospital hauntings from across the globe, including:

The ghostly apparitions at an old Utah hospital, now a nursing home, whose appearances are said to predict a patient’s death.
The Italian island referred to by locals as “the gateway to Hell,” where the restless spirits of thousands of plague victims prowl the dark streets and fields.
The terrifying screams and violent phenomena that keep visitors away from an abandoned airbase hospital in the Philippines.
The ghostly nurse in grey who haunts the corridors of a London hospital and has frightened generations of doctors and nurses encountering her restless spirit.

Join Richard on this fascinating journey around the world, stopping off at a wide spectrum of haunted hospitals and asylums, old and new, and shiver at the personal encounters of doctors, nurses, patients, and others with the strange and inexplicable.
