On the positive side, Ms. Rule again visited the places she wrote about and included some wonderful photographs she had made during her visit. There are also numerous recent eyewitness accounts to be found in this book which also helps to lend a great deal of credibility to the book. I was also very impressed with the range of stories in this book. All too often writers in this area tend to use only secondary sources and just basically re-tell the same old stories over and over again. One ghost book author I have run into tends to tell his stories almost word for word like previous authors and gets by with it by crediting the previous author in his bibliography. There is none of that with Leslie Rule and very few of her stories deal with the famous and well-worn haunts that tend to show up in book after book.
I was particularly impressed with the stories emanating from the Ted Bundy killings. These stories were a little skimpy on haunting details but extremely interesting nonetheless. Given that the author's mother was a friend of Ted Bundy, Leslie would seem to be the perfect instrument to research and maybe publish an entire book dealing with any hauntings left by Bundy's rampage.
No matter if it deals with Bundy or not, I am looking forward to future ghost books by Leslie Rule. She has the talent and zeal to become one of the foremost writers in this field.
Some people liked that she listed the different locations but to me that read as "look at these places that paid me to say they are haunted." I know I'm being cynical but some of them were just addresses with little more than "some people say a figure has been seen here." In the world of google we don't need a book to tell us where supposedly haunted places are - especially not if they are accompanied by weak and vague stories.
