Drastically incomplete, lacking actual back story for several of the landmarks or ghosts that were included. And the bonus snippet of bigotry was an unexpected slap. I found myself yelling at the book at times, as it completely skipped over well known actually haunted places to invent new ones, or gave totally false origins to ghost stories. For instance, the Bellevue Biltmore fire was missing (!), and the ghost in the Fort Harrison Hotel had been there since the early 20th century but was attributed to a more salacious origin to suit the author's dislike of the current tenant. There were nearly no sources given, however, so I suppose the inaccuracies can be excused as beginning and ending with the author.
