My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Self-styled paranormal investigators Thomas D’Agostino and Arlene Nicholson visited dozens of Connecticut sites reputed to be haunted in one form or another. From Devil’s Hopyard to Gay City to Nathan Hale Homestead to the New London Lighthouse, they set up their EVP equipment, gathered local ghost stories, and wrote a compendium of their findings. The upshot: there’s nothing new, no revelations, no proof, just more of what’s already been written by so many before them. For readers unfamiliar with Connecticut legends, this book may prove interesting. For those who’ve heard this stuff time and again, give it a miss. An added caveat: some of the “historical” factoids included here are inaccurate.
