Saw this advertised on the BBC Northamptonshire website. It's a strange kind of book that doesn't fit easily into any particular category but I have to say that as a fan of this sort of thing I was impressed. There is something for everyone here and the book covers a wide range of topics, all of which have an element of the unexplained about them. From historical mysteries to ghosts and the paranormal. E.g., chapter 5 deals with fairy legends in the county, whereas Chapter 9 is about UFOs here. But it all fits together very well. It is all very well laid out for the reader to judge for themselves the mysteries of Northamptonshire. The author does a very good job of comparing folklore from long ago with the ghosts and things reported in today's newspapers. On the whole, it's a very good read. Very intriguing and as a local book this type of thing can't be beat. A complete and very satisfying book on Northants mysteries that goes beyond the average ghost book.

Daniel Codd has done a good job covering all the major sites in Lincolnshire. I would like to see him do a specialized work on the haunted RAF airfields used during WW2, with eye-witness details, maps, and photo-specific information. This would be helpful to those of us who are more interested in that area. Thanks again for a well-illustrated book.
