Ghostly Encounters (Paperback) Book
It should come as no surprise that with the dawn of the Digital Age, people have turned their new technology toward the mysterious stories they've heard or events they've personally experienced. Here, in the dusky gloom where traditional science has refused to enter, a new breed of investigator has introduced us to the strange sounds and weird images from these nocturnal adventures.
Like most people, Jeff Cole has always been intrigued by aspects of the paranormal; does the human spirit endure after the body dies, and are there such things as ghosts? Though the deeper questions are best left to priests and scholars, his investigations of well- and lesser-known historical sites indicates the existence of a truly inexplicable phenomenon.
Ghostly Encounters: Confessions of a Paranormal Investigator chronicles Cole’s journey into the world of ghost hunting, other ghost hunting groups he has met, and the team he ultimately joins. Ghostly Encounters also provides a first-person account of the haunted locations explored, historical background and context to these sites, and audio and video clips so the reader can listen to and watch some of the startling evidence captured during these investigations.
In addition to these accounts, Cole also includes a general overview of the common equipment and experimental devices used in modern paranormal investigating, illustrating what works, what shows promise, and what should be avoided at all cost.

Comments about this product:
Ghostly Encounters: Confessions of a Paranormal Investigator, is a fascinating account of the author's investigations into a number of haunted buildings, cemeteries and historical battle sites, and he includes audio files from those investigations that are easily accessed by using a QR app or following the provided links. I have always been intrigued by the paranormal and ghost hunters, and had likewise become disenchanted with the somewhat fanciful reality shows that seem based more on conjecture than anything of substance, so I found the author's accounts of his investigations to be refreshingly honest and trustworthy. Cole does more than share his experiences with the reader, however; he also gives recommendations on the types of equipment someone who wants to go into the field should consider buying, as well as providing an appendix with haunted buildings and paranormal investigative groups listed by state to help get you started.
Cole and Robson's own investigations are mind-boggling. I was spellbound reading each account and listening to those unforgettable and often poignant audio files. And while Cole's experiences in the field have led me to conclude that paranormal investigations are not something I personally want to get involved in, I definitely want to read about his and Robson's future paranormal encounters. Ghostly Encounters: Confessions of a Paranormal Investigator is most highly recommended.
