The subtitle of this book put me off a bit. Of the 29 stories covered in this book, none of them are exactly unknown to readers of ghost stories - in fact several of them are very well-known. So, unless the author is saying that he found information absolutely unknown to anyone else, and restricted access to it on his website "secret files" seemed a bit much.

The stories are not terribly spooky, although some of them are eerie. They center around feelings in most cases, although there are a few examples of physical manifestation included.

Most of the accounts are drawn from publicly available sources as well as private conversations. There is nothing contained herein which is, or should be, "secret."

For all of that, the stories are entertaining. They each contain enough information, including website information, to inspire further research if you are so inclined.

This book is one of those that you can leave on your bedside table, or anywhere else where you might want something to read for a few minutes without having to commit any significant time to it.

It is a fun book. Enjoy it.
