About the Author
William J. Hall was born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where the events of this book took place. He watched the news coverage of the Lindley Street haunting on TV when he was 10 years old. Hall is professionally equipped to recognize trickery. After more than 25 years as a performing magician, he knows how to create and recognize illusions. He is experienced in researching the unexplained, from folklore and urban legend to fortune telling, the pyramids, and other mysterious tales. His syndicated 1990's column "Magic and the Unknown" ran for six years in multiple local papers in his home state. Hall has two sons and resides in Plainville, Connecticut.
Top customer reviews
Some of the reviews I read before purchasing it said that it read like a textbook but I don't agree. While it is a piece of nonfiction (detailing the accounts of several people involved) and therefore doesn't read like a story it is a great overview of what purportedly happened on Lindley Street.
I bought this because I grew up in Bridgeport, CT and wanted to know more about this case. This book absolutely delivered! I felt as though the author did some thorough investigative work to get the pictures and stories of the people involved.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a well-written account of what happened during the haunting at Lindley Street.
THE WORLD'S MOST HAUNTED HOUSE is the book THE AMITYVILLE HORROR should have been. While that was an influential hoax, selling millions of copies along with its bill of goods, Mr. Hall's book is a thoroughly researched, well documented story of what can only be called a true and terrifying paranormal event. If you don't believe that weird stuff happens, you will when you read this and listen to the witnesses: cops, firemen, reporters. In fact, I know one of the witnesses personally.
Highly recommended. Indispensable.
