And the editing...was it even edited? Who knows? It certainly doesn't look like it. There are typos and misspelling

A good book by a relative of Ed and Lorraine Warren. This is not overwrought or exaggerated like so many books on paranormal topics are. This is a basic set of stories of different investigations the authors have taken part in.

Love this man, have seen his him speak four times and met him in person several times. He is a awesome man to sit and chat with about anything. His book is a great book and I look forward to his other ones that are in the works.
