So you think you don't believe in ghosts? Ive always considered them fun, scary characters for mystery writers.
After reading HAUNTED IOWA, however, I am beginning to wonder.
In the first section, Kathleen Vyn describes sound and photography equipment and other accessories used by two teams of investigators: Iowa Paranormal Advanced Research Team, and Des Moines Iowa Extreme Paranormal Advanced Research Team. Results of cases described in this section sound the most valid.
The second section describes places believed to be haunted, some of them more legendary than verifiable.
Part three presents ghostly Iowa people such as Brad Steiger.
This thoroughly enjoyable read has one puzzling characteristic: cases are reported from all areas of Iowa except Cedar Rapids/Marion! We don't have old mansions haunted by past residents who experienced unfortunate lives--or deaths? Anyone have a ghost story that needs investigating?
