Is there life after death? Do ghosts really exist? founder Jeff Belanger thinks so. He has traveled the world to speak with witnesses, psychics, and ghost hunters and to learn about their eerie experiences. 

In The World’s Most Haunted Places, Belanger offers an international tour of haunted historic locations. At the White House in Washington, D.C., staffers have spotted the specter of Dolley Madison protecting the Rose Garden and the ghost of Abraham Lincoln staring back at them from hallways. For decades, Resurrection Mary has been picked up by motorists on Archer Avenue in Chicago, only to disappear when they reach Resurrection Cemetery. In the Paris catacombs, where more than six million skeletons are held, visitors often hear strange voices. In Ireland’s Ballygally Castle Hotel, the ghosts are more mischievous, waking up guests in the middle of the night with their cackling laughter and knocks on the door. Other spirits are even less subtle, appearing in attic windows and movie theaters, to the fright and occasional amusement of their living witnesses.

These fascinating tales of true hauntings will draw in even the most skeptical reader, who will come to know places where the walls, the grounds, and the ghosts really do talk.
