I picked up this book because the author lives in Athens Ohio where I went to school at Ohio University. Same ghost stories as told in books before such as Haunted Chicago.

The Italian Bride who is buried in the same cemetery as Al Capone is one of the spookier stories, as is Bachelor Grove Cemetery, a truly frightening place friends and I made a trek to years ago.
