I own a few books now by Billy Roberts and confess to being a fan of his writing style. This latest release seems to continue his high standard of authorship, and is certainly an entertaining read.

Some of these books on paranormal events can be a little florid. Far too padded with literary fat which can turn the reading pleasure into a chore. Billy has a much more spare, concise style to his writing and this anthology of paranormal events is definitely in that vein. Rather than a book of self-help or research this is Billy at his storytelling best, drawing from curated events and some of his own experience as a working medium and parapsychologist.

If you like your ghostly matters and read widely, then it's well worth having in your collection. To try and summarise the content here would be to spoil the review as in this respect content is everything and it's definitely entertaining and occasionally chilling. The subject matter is a wide spectrum of stories and events so it doesn't become just a run-of-the-mill ghost story tome where it descends into repetition, and that kept me reading rather than putting the book down constantly and coming back to it half-heartedly.

A great page-turner. Five stars.

As usual I paid nothing for this book but instead received it for free in exchange for a review. Despite NetGalley's kindness I give my scrupulously honest opinions below.

This book is pretty simple. It's just a collection of haunting tales. You could have guessed that by the title alone, I'm sure. But what it is NOT is any attempt to analyse or explain anything. It's just straight-up campfire-grade spooky stories.

To the positive side, I give the author credit for just getting down to it. There is a bit of an introduction but not much and the stories just start right up without excessive preamble. Our tales of horror are divided into handy categories and were all sufficient to raise a bit of gooseflesh on me though I did prime things rather well by laying abed by myself in the dark before reading. It wasn't enough to keep me up but it did keep me thinking.

To the negative, I'm not going to make any comments about whether you should believe any of these stories because, let's face it, you'll believe what you want to. However, these did seem to all fall along pretty common lines and you could place each story in some movie or some TV show of the past. I picked out a couple of Twilight Zone plots pretty easily and I'm sure most of these either have their roots in or have inspired some fictional retelling along the way. As I said, it's up to your belief system which way that pendulum swings.

In summary, this is a nice, tidy collection of hair-raising tales that are either just nice stories or real-life accounts of encounters with the supernatural. Which is it? That's your decision.

This book had me laughing, crying and gripped to my seat. Once opened I could not close it and had to read it all. The writing style is so easy to digest, and I would highly recommend this book for reading. I am now a huge fan of Billy Roberts work and cannot wait for further instalments.

I couldn't put this book down and read it through in one sitting. I've read many of Billy's books and have always liked the way he writes. He has a way of turning a simple tale into a thrilling story. I found it rather laughable when I read one of the reviewers remarks that some of the stories are ridiculous and unbelievable, with no evidence to support them! Yeah, whatever. Billy's stories have an extremely broad appeal and contain sufficient material to make a TV film. I loved the book and can't wait for a sequel. Easily worth a five star rating. Excellent and highly recommended.
