Very good, although the cutesy premise actually works against it. The authors had to find 66 haunted places on Route 66. Well, near it, sort of, because they wander quite a ways off the actual route. For instance, three of the California locations are MILES from the actual path of Route 66.
Still, the vignettes are cute, and of the sites I was familiar with, their stories ring true. My own experience coincides with their details in one case, which made the book a bit more real to me.

A good guidebook for a ghost-filled road trip, and decently researched. Not many standout stories, though, as it's focused on summaries over tale-telling. (B)
